FOX Saturday College Football doubled its rating from last week’s debut, as ABC had a NASCAR race (with a similar rating).
The Women’s Championship at the U.S. Open of Tennis was to be played live on CBS at 8pm-10, but due to rain, was moved to Sunday at 4:30 p.m., which bumped the Men’s Championship to Monday afternoon.
