Houston (CBS Houston)- The Houston Astros keep breaking records for the wrong reasons.

This past Sunday according to Nielson ratings, the Astros and Indians game drew a rating of 0.0 in the greater Houston area.

ZERO-POINT-ZERO

The Houston Chronicle explains that it doesn’t necessarily mean that there wasn’t one person who tuned in, it just means that not a single, solitary Nielsen household tuned in to watch the Astros.

“There are a couple of asterisks involved here, of course,” the Houston Chronicle explained. “For one thing, Nielsen persists with the statistically supportable but still head-shaking concept that it can measure what millions of television viewers are watching by monitoring the behavior of hundreds.”

So what was it?

  • The Houston Texans were playing at the same time.
  • The Houston Astros were handed their ninth consecutive loss and their 105th defeat of the year.
  • The games are only seen on CSN Houston.

The Astros pulled a 0.04 rating during the weekend of Alabama vs. Texas A&M and the Texans first home game.

Whatever the reason might be you can’t say today that the Astros aren’t being talked-about nationally.
