We typically don't post non-primetime broadcast sports ratings because they come on a different schedule from primetime ratings (Friday following the week), and when we used to post them regularly there was little reader interest.

However, a number of people have contacted me about the numbers for the New Zealand v. France World Cup Final match, I wanted to post them, and figured I'd include the entire list of the top 25 in the process. Note that the rating below is the household rating, not the more typical adults 18-49 rating we feature. No demo group ratings are available to us for this list.

Enjoy!
