January 20, 2021 By Juan Aguerrevere
Premier League broadcasts on NBC and NBCSN took the week of Tuesday, Jan. 12, through Monday, Jan. 18, by a storm, with a total of eight broadcasts and an average of 2,645,000 viewers.

NBC screened the most-watched soccer game on U.S. TV last week in the Premier League's clash between Fulham and Chelsea on Saturday. The game, which ended 1-0 in favor of the Blues, averaged 873,000 viewers and received a 0.52 viewership rating.

The remaining seven Premier League games were broadcasted through NBCSN, garnering a total of 1,772,000 average viewers. Tottenham's 3-1 win over Sheffield United on Sunday registered as the third-most watched game in the U.S. last week. The broadcast received a 0.24 viewership rating and attracted 403,000 average viewers. Another game that was available on NBCSN and performed well was Brighton & Hove Albion's 1-0 away win at Leeds. The broadcast averaged 319,000 viewers and received a 0.20 rating.

The second most-watched soccer game on U.S. TV last week was Liga MX's 1-0 Monterrey win over Club America, which aired through FOX Deportes. The game received a 0.28 viewership rating for the 657,000 average viewers it entertained. Fox Deportes also broadcasted two more games, including a Liga Nacional de Honduras game between Marathon and Olimpia.

TUDN remained quiet this week only broadcasting three Liga MX games. The most successful out of the three was Puebla's 1-0 win over Cruz Azul on Saturday. The broadcast averaged 297,000 viewers and scored a 0.13 rating.

ESPN's only soccer broadcast that made it into Showbuzzdaily's top 150 cable originals and network finals was the Supercopa de España final on Sunday, which ended up being the fourth most-watched game of the week. An average of 345,000 viewers watched Athletic Club upset Barcelona 3-2 and the game received a 0.23 viewership rating.
