They probably are influenced by whatever else is on, but, U.S. time, the finals started saturday morning for the womens and sunday morning for the mens, and if I recall correctly, the FO finals are generally played the same times/days every year. On weekends in the U.S., the morning shows pretty much include only political debate shows and cartoons, so I'm not sure how much that would affect viewership.
