1 Million Watch Liverpool vs Manchester United Tape Delayed On FOX

FOX’s tape delay broadcast of Liverpool against Manchester United on its free-to-air network TV channel was watched by 1 million viewers on September 23, 2012.

The Sunday afternoon tape-delayed broadcast averaged a 0.7/1 with an estimated 1 million viewers tuning in. This compares to the September 18, 2011 match, which had a 1.0/2 rating, but it’s important to note that last year’s broadcast of Liverpool-Manchester United received the benefit of a NFL lead-in that was +19% better than the one on Sunday, September 23, 2012.

The 1 million viewing audience number doesn’t include the TV audience who tuned in to watch the game live on FOX Soccer earlier that day.

FOX’s next broadcast of a Premier League match on the free-to-air FOX network is this Sunday when Newcastle United against Manchester United will be shown either at 2pm ET or 4:30pm ET (check your local listings). The match, of course, will also be shown live on FOX Soccer at 11am ET.
