College football on ABC -- most of the country saw Florida at Miami -- scored a 4.4/9 to win the 8 p.m. hour. NBC's "Most Outrageous Game Show Moments," 4.0/8, took second, while an hour of "Cops" on FOX finished third at 3.6/7. CBS aired the U.S. Open women's final between Belgians Justine Henin-Hardenne and Kim Clijsters (2.5/5 average from 8 to 10 p.m.).

First, the WILLIAMS matches are always the highlight of the tournies.
Did you not hear all of the whining by media and promoters at the absence of V&S? :)

Also, this is a message board and a subject may be posted more than once if desired by the member.

Now, back to the topic of the bottom rated ratings. If the WILLIAMS are not in next year's Open, then I am sure that CBS will cancel the finals broadcast during the prime time spot.

When will you Americans learn?
American ain't the only country on the earth.
None of the non american ppl would give a fuck about it. The sisters ain't that carismatic.
Their story may be great but they aren't as big as the sport itself. they have as many haters as their supporters...so.....

They should have done it when they found out that it would be an all-Belgian final.

Really?! Then you must be a REALLY big fan, because those two finals were boring as hell. But everybody has their own opinion.

well people then don't complain when they don't put the foreign players on the prime courts or the best times because the USTA/US OPen depends on tv money to offer that Million dollar first prize. It all works together. Those ratings was bad for women's tennis and it will effect all the players not just CBS or the US Open.

Does it show that some players are indispensable to American ratings or that American channels do a hell of a bad a job and are not able to promote foreing players?
