TV viewing audience numbers for Premier League matches on U.S. television have come a long in four years. From 19,000 viewers in 2008 for one game to more than 1.6 million for a recent Premier League match. Along the way, the league has continued to grow in popularity in the United States for various reasons.
To illustrate how the viewing numbers have increased over time, I’ve created an interactive timeline (see above) that you can scroll left and right to see a pretty comprehensive review of TV viewing audience numbers for the past four years.
Have fun playing with the timeline.
