RATING NOTES: USTA ONLY HAPPY WHEN IT RAINS
Published September 11, 1996
The Men's U.S. Open final earned a 6.1 rating and 11 share, making it the highest-rated Men's final since '90. A rain delay pushed the match into the "highly coveted" "60 Minutes'" time slot....The Eagles-Packers game Monday night on ABC drew a 15.8 rating (Michael Hiestand, USA TODAY, 9/11)....In Baltimore, Milton Kent writes the Orioles and Ravens are cutting into each other's local ratings. The Ravens-Steelers game Sunday drew a local rating of 16.6/36, down from the 18.9/48 of the opening week. But "one need look no further than Camden Yards for an explanation" as the Orioles-Tigers game drew an over-the-air equivalent of a 4.8/10 on RSN HTS (Baltimore SUN, 9/11). In Cleveland, the Ravens-Steelers game in Cleveland drew a 15.1/33 share, down from a 16/44 in week one. WKYC-NBC officials attribute the drop to competition from the Indians-Mariners game on SportsChannel (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 9/10).
