Champions League Final on mainstream TV in USA

I haven't seen a thread on this posted in the usual suspect forum (e.g., World Soccer), but from a big picture perspective, this is massive news for soccer in North America.

As the Champions League final has been moved to a Saturday this year, from the traditional Wednesday fixture, it was announced yesterday that the Champions League final (teams t.b.d.) will be broadcast LIVE on the Saturday afternoon on FOX TV, not FOX Sports channel or Fox Soccer Channel, but the mainstream channel that reaches some 150 million homes in the US.

They are going after the non-serious soccer fans and I expect ratings will be huge.
