The numbers are a bit dated now ('09-'10) - but these are the last comprehensive MLB/NBA/NHL RSN numbers we've seen:

MLB was ahead of the NBA in every shared market except LA (Lakers), Cleveland (LeBron), and DC(*) (well, the Nats just basically sucked) - in most markets significantly ahead.

(*) If you include the Orioles broadcast on the same RSN, they blow away the NBA.
Can we get numbers from less than three years ago? These are extremely out of date. We were just talking a couple pages ago about the Pens having the highest local ratings of any NHL, NBA, or MLB team.
