Best of Times, Worst of Times

AFC Championship (best ratings in 24 years)
31.3 rating of all TV households
46% share of audience watching TV

NFC Championship
28.1 rating of all TV households
50% share of the audience watching TV

2010 World Series (lowest ratings ever)
8.4 rating of all TV householdsg (average)
14% share of  audience watching TV (average)

When all markets, large and small, have a chance to win a championship, people care about the sport.  It's too late for MLB, which doesn't have significant revenue sharing, nor a salary cap. NFL, please don't screw up your league, too, with your next collective bargaining agreement.
