Fox grabbed top honors in Tuesday ratings, as the MLB All-Star game led to a 2.1 in viewers 18-49 for Fox, per the Nielsen overnights, and a 9 share. That beat the 1.8/8 that NBC put up.

CBS rated a 0.5/2 with repeated dramas.

ABC was at 0.4/2. Repeated comedies led into The Last Defense, which slipped 20% to 0.4.

Univision too did a 0.4/2.

The CW was at 0.2/1. The 100 and The Outpost both scored a 0.2. The former was down a tenth and the latter was flat.
