It's no Super Bowl, but Pro Bowl still a tube sensation

NEW YORK -- The Pro Bowl earned its highest television rating since 2000.

The NFC's 55-41 victory over the AFC on Sunday drew a 7.7 rating and 12 share on Fox. That's up 8 percent from last year, when the game first moved from the week after the Super Bowl to the week before it.

The game earned a 21.0/28 in New Orleans. Milwaukee averaged a 15.6/23 even though no Super Bowl-bound Packers were playing in it.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.
