TUDN and ABC topped soccer viewership on U.S. TV from Tuesday, May 4 through Monday, May 10.

TUDN topped the soccer viewership charts in the USA with the broadcast of Pachuca taking down Chivas Guadalajara 4-2 on Sunday. A total of 862,000 fans witnessed Pachuca’s qualification for the Liga MX Liguilla. The broadcast received a 0.38 viewership rating. Twelve other soccer game broadcasts on TUDN made it to ShowbuzzDaily’s top 150 cable originals and network finals last week. 

The Spanish-language channel screened the UEFA Champions League semifinals screened on Tuesday and Wednesday. Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Real Madrid garnered a larger crowd – 376,000 viewers – than Manchester City’s home win over PSG – 266,000 viewers.

Four CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals second legs fixtures also featured in TUDN’s lineup last week. Club America’s commanding 3-1 against the Portland Timbers at home on Wednesday, May 5, was watched by 441,000 viewers in the USA.

A Liga MX Femenil Liguilla quarterfinal game between Tigres UANL and Club America made it to the list. Tigres defeated America 2-0 (6-0 global) to comfortably reach the semifinals where they will face rivals Monterrey. A total of 81,000 people watched the broadcast on TUDN. 

A couple of Sunday Major League Soccer broadcasts on ABC made it to the top three most-watched soccer games on American TV last week. Western Conference leaders Seattle Sounders secured a 2-1 win against Cascadia rivals Portland. The game attracted 620,000 viewers and received a 0.34 viewership rating.
