Big numbers for NFL Network

Despite being available in just 38 percent of the country, the NFL Network scored a big rating for last week's NFC showdown between Green Bay and Dallas. The game earned a rating of 14.6, the highest rating for any cable program since Al Gore and Ross Perot debated on CNN's Larry King Live in 1993. (Whatever happened to Ross Perot? Never mind, I don't want to know.)

A sign of the times: the Packers-Cowboys game was watched by an average of 10.1 million viewers -- higher than any baseball playoff game on TBS, which is available in more than twice as many households. -- Joe Guckin
