Most-watched soccer games on U.S. TV: Sept. 8-14

September 16, 2020 By Juan Aguerrevere
NBC is back with a bang breaking the record for the most-watched game on an opening Premier League weekend in U.S. history.

A total of 1,258,000 viewers tuned in to NBC to watch Liverpool defeat Leeds United 4-3 on Saturday, becoming the most-watched match on Premier League opening weekend in U.S. history. The game received an outstanding 0.71 viewership rating and a total of 1,530,000 viewers watched the game across NBC's broadcast network, Telemundo and live stream. 

NBC Sports Network had a successful weekend, accumulating a total of 2,465 viewers across six games and averaging 410,000 viewers per broadcast. Five of the six games were Premier League matches and Crystal Palace's 1-0 win over Southampton United was the second most-watched game on NBC, recording a total of 387,000 viewers and a 0.17 viewership rating. The only non-Premier League game was FA Women's Super League's match between West Ham and Arsenal, which drew 100,000 viewers and received a 0.04 viewership rating. However, this was not the most-viewed women's game of the week. 

CBS's broadcast of the NWSL Fall Series game between Challenge Cup champions Houston Dash and 2019 NWSL champions North Carolina Courage was the most-watched women's game – fourth most-watched overall – of the week in the U.S. A total of 370,000 people tuned in to CBS's broadcast to watch the Courage defeat the Dash 4-3, and the game earned an astonishing 0.22 viewership rating.  

TUDN had a strong showing as it usually does, compiling 2,947,000 viewers across 16 games. Despite having more viewers than NBC, TUDN's average per broadcast was less than half at 184,200. The game that attracted the largest crowd was America's 1-1 draw against Toluca on Saturday, compiling 458,000 viewers and receiving a 0.16 viewership rating. The lone MLS match that reached a spot on Showbuzz's daily top-150 ratings was the San Jose Earthquakes' 0-0 draw with LA Galaxy on Sunday and attracted 102,000 viewers.  

BeIN Sports, ESPN2 and Universo screened a game each. BeIN recorded the lowest number of viewers – 67,000 – during Ligue 1's dramatic Marseille 1-0 win over PSG that saw five players be sent off in the last minute. ESPN2 had the best viewership out of the three channels amassing 167,000 viewers during a UEFA Nations League 0-0 draw between England and Denmark on Tuesday, Sept. 8. And Universo pleased 112,000 viewers with Liga MX's 1-1 draw between Chivas Guadalajara and Queretaro.
