SEC games on CBS draw best TV ratings since 1999

NEW YORK (AP) -- SEC football is a big hit with television viewers.

The first four weeks of coverage on CBS have drawn the network's highest rating in 11 years. The average 4.2 rating and 10 share are the best at this point of the season since the games drew the same numbers in 1999.

The rating is up 11 percent from a 3.8 last year.
