NEW YORK -- Y.E. Yang's upset win over Tiger Woods in the PGA Championship was a television hit that even picked up more viewers for an interview with quarterback Michael Vick.
Nielsen Media Research says its overnight measurements of big cities found ratings for the golf tournament up 150 percent over 2008. Woods was injured and didn't play in the tournament last year.
Nielsen and CBS don't yet have an estimate of the audience nationally. In the metered markets, it was the best PGA final round since 2002.
The golf tournament led directly into "60 Minutes," which featured Vick's interview about his prison time for running a dogfighting operation. CBS estimates more than 11 million people saw the news show, which averaged around 8 million for more typical Sundays this summer.
