NEW YORK - The Westminster Kennel Club dog show drew its highest TV audience yet, attracting an average of 4.6 million viewers per night on the USA Network.
A Kerry blue terrier named Mick won best in show Tuesday night, capping the two-day competition at America's most prestigious canine event.
The network's two-night average household rating of 3.7 was up 9 percent from last year's 3.4.
The USA Network has televised the Westminster show for 20 years.
Dog shows have done increasingly well on television. NBC's coverage of the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving pulled in robust ratings while airing opposite the NFL game between the New England Patriots and the Detroit Lions.
