Nicklaus Boosts Senior Ratings


Jack Nicklaus not only plays better in the majors, he helps the Senior Tour in the television ratings when he's contending.
The U.S. Senior Open had more viewers than the PGA Tour's Canon Greater Hartford Open by a slim margin both Saturday and Sunday. NBC received a 1.9 overnight rating compared to ABC's 1.8 during the 3rd round. During Sunday's final round NBC had a 2.7 compared to ABC's 2.5.
One rating point equals 900,000 homes measured from the top 49 markets in the U.S.
