The MLB All-Star Game has come and gone.
The American League ultimately came out on top by a final of 3-2 and Giancarlo Stanton earned MVP honors for the game.
The All-Star Game is always a nice celebration where the best of the best from the American League and the National League square off in an epic midsummer showdown.
But according to an MLB insider, the MLB All-Star Game is still the most popular.
Austin Karp tweeted some numbers which showed how many viewers each of the last few All-Star Games from the major sports had.
Baseball is at the top with 7.51 million viewers.
Most-recent All-Star games audiences among Big Four leagues:
MLB on Fox: 7.51 million viewers
Pro Bowl on ABC/ESPN/DisneyXD: 6.69 million
NBA on TNT/TBS: 6.28 million
NHL on ABC: 1.15 million

MLB Takes The Cake In ASG Viewers
Who says baseball is dying?
The All-Star Game is where the fun is at.
And it’s been this way ever since MLB decided to have it not determine home-field advantage in the World Series.
Above all else, it’s a celebration of the greatest players in all of baseball and just how fun the game truly is.
And it’s fitting that this year’s All-Star Game had so many viewers, especially after the lockout.
But it’s also quite a big deal that baseball’s All-Star Game had the most viewers out of any of the major sports, even the Pro Bowl, which can be seen on ESPN, ABC, and Disney XD.
Those are three major networks, and with those networks, the Pro Bowl didn’t garner as many viewers as the baseball All-Star Game did, and that game was only on one network, that being FOX Sports.
This is interesting to see, but it mainly just goes to show how popular baseball truly is and how it’s All-Star Game is the best out of all of them.
