On Sunday, the USFL season ended with a championship match that attracted a TV audience that Fox should be cautiously optimistic about Year Two.
According to ShowBuzzDaily.com, 1.5 million people watched Sunday's USFL Championship game on Fox.
This is more or less the same as what other networks received for Sunday sporting events: PGA Tour golf on CBS drew 1.9million viewers, NASCAR on USA drew 1.9million viewers, Wimbledon tennis on ABC drew 1,5 million viewers, and MLB Sunday Night Baseball was viewed by 1.2 million viewers on ESPN.
Fox, the owner of the USFL has announced that the league will return for another season. The XFL will be competing with the USFL next year. It is expected to begin play in February, two months prior to the USFL's second season. In a time where many are unsure if there is enough fan interest to keep one league, we will find out next year if there is enough for two.
