  • Fox needs Patriots' popularity to drive Super Bowl ratings      Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:33:58 -0500

    NFL: AFC Championship-Pittsburgh Steelers at New England PatriotsBy Tim Baysinger NEW YORK (Reuters) - Fox will have to rely on the popularity of the New England Patriots as they face the less-celebrated Atlanta Falcons if it wants to draw a record U.S. television crowd for the Super Bowl. The 21st Century Fox unit is set to broadcast the 51st edition of the National Football League’s title game on Feb. 5 in what is traditionally the most-watched TV show of the year with viewership of more than 100 million. Big Super Bowl ratings are particularly important this year as the NFL is coming off a season in which it saw its average TV audience drop by 8 percent.

  • China orders more than 100 golf courses shut: govt      Mon, 23 Jan 2017 03:23:22 -0500

    Local authorities in China have profited from selling land for golf courses, but they are seen as venues for shady dealmaking between elites and politiciansChina has ordered the closure of a sixth of the country's golf courses since 2011, its top economic planner said, in an ongoing crackdown on a sport controversial for its links with wealthy elites.
