Huge Ratings for the US Open

Just to round out the coverage of the Open, let's talk TV numbers. As reported in the NY Times, the Sunday rating in primetime produced a 13.5 number. That is basically CSI good - the most popular show on television - and on a night not known for huge TV viewership.

To put that into historical perspective, here are the ratings for the US Open going back into the 1970s.
