TBS's exclusive presentation of Major League Baseball's American League Championship Series Game 1 - the Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8 p.m.-1:06 a.m. ET - delivered a 4.2 U.S. household rating and more than 6.8 million total viewers, based on Nielsen Fast Nationals.

Additional highlights:
