So, how were the ratings Saturday night? Were they good enough to get a second shot? Probably not.

On Saturday night, WFAA8 preempted ABC's entire prime-time schedule for homegrown coverage of an FC Dallas soccer game. The 7 to 7:30 p.m. warmup show drew 20,359 total viewers in running fourth behind programming on CBS, NBC and Fox. The game itself averaged 27,145 viewers, again running a distant fourth. WFAA8's 9:30 to 10 p.m. coverage of a post-game fireworks show had a comparatively robust 67,863 viewers, nipping the second half-hour of Fox4's local newscast.
