The final round of Woods' fourth PGA Championship victory on Sunday earned CBS an overnight rating of 6.8 and a 15 share, the fifth-highest rating in the metered markets since 1986.
But it didn't match Woods' three previous PGA Championships wins in 1999 (7.7/18), 2000 (10.0/23) and 2006 (7.2/16), or his one-stroke loss to Rich Beem in 2002 (8.0/17).
Overnight ratings measure the 55 largest TV markets in the U.S., and each ratings point represents about 735,000 households. The rating is the percentage watching a telecast among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into a broadcast among those households with televisions on at the time.
