[February 03, 2010]  LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Cable network TLC says the Miss America pageant broadcast over the weekend attracted 4.5 million viewers.

HardwareTLC says it's the largest number of viewers of any Miss America telecast shown on cable.

Miss Virginia Caressa Cameron won the crown Saturday night. The 22-year-old emerged from a field of 53 contestants after swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions.

TLC says the pageant telecast was ranked No. 1 for the night on cable channels, excluding movies.

Saturday's 4.5 million viewers was a million more than last year but far less than the 33 million who watched the pageant on broadcast TV in 1988.
