ESPN Debuting New Baseball Tonight Studio

Baseball Tonight is debuting a new 5,000-square-foot studio during this evening’s 10 p.m. broadcast. The state-of-the-art studio is the largest sport-specific studio at ESPN and includes an expansive demonstration area, allowing plenty of room for John Kruk to demonstrate how to go from first to third on routine singles.

The new studio houses 19 40-inch LCD monitors and seven 70-inch LCD, all of which can feed separate video streams. The anchor desk contains three seamless monitors which can include graphics, headshots and logos. There are two LED displays (8 feet, 6 inches by 12 feet, 6 inches), which can showcase standings, results and editorially-driven graphics.

“The new set is cutting edge, functional and a unique blend of contemporary and traditional design, much like the game,” Jed Drake, ESPN senior vice President and executive producer. “We’re excited by the opportunities it offers to enhance the viewer experience.”

Not sure why they released the Front Row video above, because all it shows is Kruk, Bobby Valentine and others traipsing through an unfinished work site.

ABC Wins Tuesday Despite Weaker Lead-In

63.2 million people watched the second Presidential debate Tuesday. That’s less than the 70 million who watched the VP debate last Thursday but 11 million more than the first presidential contest Sept. 26.

ABC was once again the top rated network with 13,200,000 viewers, followed by NBC with 10,860,000 and CBS with 9,440,000.

ABC had a strong lead-in to the debate with Dancing With the Stars, which averaged 13,345,000. But the top show at 8pmET was CBS’ NCIS, with 15,692,000, meaning the CBS drop-off was most severe. NBC gained significantly to put itself in 2nd place. NBC’s lead-in, Biggest Loser: Families, averaged 7,487,000 viewers.

(And back to “Dancing” — this morning, Good Morning America called an interview with Dancing With the Stars contestant Cheryl Burke “exclusive.” Really? Did anyone think she’d show up on the Today show?)
