A whopping 35.6 million viewers tuned in to see the University of Texas Longhorns just barely best the USC Trojans in Wednesday night's Rose Bowl, making it the most-watched college bowl game since the Nielsen electronic database was created 15 years ago. For those keeping score: CSI: Miami's Rex Linn? Very happy. TV Guide's Michael Ausiello? Not so much.
