Shaq's Reality Show More Popular With Viewers than Last Season

It's been a big week for the Big Aristotle.

But when the winner of this year's Tour de France is crowned on Sunday, he'll be able to rightly claim to have traversed one of the longest and windiest roads in all sports, with over 2263 miles ridden through fields and over mountains, all while perched on the back of a spindly little...
