No Need To Pass The Remote

With the advent of hundreds of channels, multiple games on at the same time, the Internet, TiVo, DVDs and video games, the major networks don't often get ratings that are comparable to what they used to see 15 or more years ago. But the Michigan-Ohio State game on Saturday was an exception.
