TV Ratings: Mid-July Version

soccertvSoccer America is reporting that the Gold Cup semi-final managed a 1.2 rating on Sunday afternoon.  The game featured the United States and El Salvador from Baltimore Maryland with Gus Johnson doing the play by play.  The quarterfinal doubled the rating from the USA/Cuba opener on Fox.  Per Soccer America, “the USA-El Salvador overnight rating compares favorably to overnights of recent live soccer matches on FOX. The Bayern-Munich-Borussia Dortmund UEFA Champions League final drew a 1.0 overnight rating (0.9 final rating) and Wigan-Manchester City FA Cup final drew a 0.5 overnight rating.”

Some other ratings news gathered from around the web.  The MLS match featuring New York and Houston on ESPN2 following the Confederations Cup 3rd place match fell just short of 400k despite the solid lead-in.  The lead-up to the Gold Cup included a USA/Guatemala friendly on the NBC Sports Network that drew about 300k viewers.  The same network fell just short of 200k for the Seattle/Vancouver match and Portland/LA got 125k.

Viewership on the NBCSN has been trending up over the last few weeks with the average now creeping above 100k with the last few games all over 125k.  This is a great trend for the league and its newest partner.
