USA TODAY's Rudy Martzke says the all-California Super Bowl could hurt ABC's ratings, citing a lack of interest from the eastern U.S., nearly three-touchdown point-spread, and lack of the Cowboys and their many fans....Ratings for the Cowboys-49ers game were 9% higher than last year's NFC title game at 34.2 and the highest NFC title game since CBS's 42.9 in 1982 (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 1/17)....Fox will not try and lure viewers with a special halftime show during the Super Bowl as it has in past years. Fox Entertainment Group President John Matoian: "We have converted" (Eric Mink, N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 1/16)....ESPN received six of nine sports CableACE Awards, including two for the networks coverage of last year's NHL Stanley Cup Finals (ESPN)....MSG's production of Ranger games was also honored as the Best Live Sports Event work (Phil Mushnick, N.Y. POST, 1/16).
