NOT A DRAW: USA TODAY's Michael Hiestand writes under the header, "Major League Soccer Title Game Fails To Draw." The league's final between the Galaxy and Dynamo Sunday night "had its best-known players" in Galaxy F Landon Donovan and MF David Beckham playing on ESPN "on TV's most-watched night." The 0.8 overnight rating for the game was "about half what Fox drew that afternoon for taped English soccer" (USA TODAY, 11/22). MLS Cup drew a 2.8 rating in the Houston market (CHRON.com, 11/21).
