Most-watched soccer games on U.S. TV: Nov. 24-30

December 4, 2020 By Juan Aguerrevere
Americans have lived, breathed and consumed lots of soccer in the past few weeks with Liga MX playoffs, MLS playoffs and European competitions in full flight.

The week of Nov. 24 through Nov. 30 was no different with a total of 9,504,000 average viewers across 29 broadcasts. TUDN, NBC Sports Network and ESPN made up most of the broadcast and attracted the most viewers.

At the top of the rankings was TUDN with the most broadcasts (nine) and viewership, adding up to 3,914,000. The Spanish language channel nailed the two most-watched soccer games on U.S. TV last week. The first was the return leg between Club America and Chivas Guadalajara, which scored a 0.41 viewership rating and attracted 897,000 average viewers. Chivas advanced to the Liga MX semifinals after defeating Club America for a second time and a global score of 3-1. Moreover, the second most-watched broadcast was that of the return leg between Cruz Azul and Tigres UANL that ended 1-0 in favor of Tigres garnered 813,000 average viewers. However, Cruz Azul advanced by an aggregate score of 3-2. 

NBCSN lagged behind TUDN despite broadcasting eight Premier League games. The total number of average viewers was 2,786,000 and the channel scored the third most-viewed game on U.S. TV last week. As expected, Chelsea's 0-0 draw with London rivals Tottenham was NBCSN's top broadcast with a 0.44 viewership rating and 744,000 average viewers.

ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes combined for five broadcasts. ESPN's three screenings attracted a combined 1,152,000 average viewers and had the best average per broadcast at 348,250. The three games were MLS playoff games and two of them (Philadelphia 0-2 New England and Seattle Sounders 3-1 LAFC) went past the 400,000 average viewership mark. ESPN2 broadcasted the international friendly between the Netherlands and the USWNT, which had the same result as the FIFA Women's World Cup final, 2-0. And the ESPN Deportes broadcast consisted of a Spanish-language MLS playoff game between the Columbus Crew and Nashville SC, which ended 2-0.

Bein Sports landed three of its games in Showbuzzdaily's top 150 cable originals and network finals last week. Out of the three, the only one that got past the 100,000 average viewership mark was Real Madrid's downfall to Alaves in La Liga Santander.
