ESPN2 TV Ratings for Man City v Man United

 ESPN2 TV Ratings for Man City v Man United

A few weeks ago, ESPN2 achieved a record high TV viewing audience for a broadcast of a Premier League match on US television. That game on April 3, 2010 between Manchester United and Chelsea drew an audience of 526,000 viewers. And now with this past Saturday’s derby between Manchester City and Manchester United, ESPN2 scored an equally impressive viewing audience.

The Manchester derby generated a 0.3 rating and was seen by an estimated 420,000 viewers in 316,000 TV homes. While the list of ratings for 2009-10 Premier League matches on US television is not comprehensive, it appears likely that the TV audience for the Manchester City against Manchester United game was the second highest of this season.

ESPN2′s recent luck with quality fixtures continues this weekend when they’ll be showing the live game between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday at 7:45am ET.
