As TV draws go, it's no longer a contest--Miss Universe has Miss America beat by several cup sizes.

Sunday's Miss Universe 2006 beautiful-humanitarian-people pageant was watched by 9.65 million, according to Nielsen Media Research--more than triple the audience for Miss America's most recent crowning.
