World Series Game 2 gets best ratings since '99

NEW YORK -- The first two World Series games averaged preliminary TV ratings worse than last year's -- when the Fall Classic wound up as the lowest-rated ever.

The Arizona Diamondbacks' 4-0 victory over the New York Yankees in Game 2 on Sunday night, though, produced a 16.1 overnight rating, the best for any Series game since 1999. It's also the most-watched Game 2 since 1997, 6 percent better than a year ago.

That rating helped Fox overcome the 11.8 for Saturday night's Game 1, which Arizona won 9-1.

The average of 14.0 is 4 percent lower than through two games in 2000, when the Subway Series between the Yankees and Mets failed to generate broad national interest. It's also 9 percent lower than 1999, and 3 percent lower than 1998.

Super-G champion Cavagnoud seriously injured

INNSBRUCK, Austria -- Super-G World Cup champion Regine Cavagnoud was hospitalized in life-threatening condition Monday after colliding with a German coach while training on a glacier.

''The patient suffered serious head injuries, a serious injury of the brain and several fractures in the face,'' Dr. Michael Blauth, head of the accident surgery ward of Innsbruck University Clinic, told the Austria Press Agency.

Other injuries included broken ribs and damage to the liver, Blauth said.

''The total of all injuries amounts to an acute danger to the life,'' the doctor was quoted as saying. The coach, identified as Markus Anwander, also was in life-threatening condition, with head, facial and internal injuries, he said.
