Most popular Premier League clubs on US television based on average viewership

Liverpool Football Club is the most popular Premier League team on US television.

That’s according to research generated by @US_Spurs that has averaged all of the viewership numbers from their TV appearances during the 2016/17 season. The Reds averaged 481,943 viewers for the 36 matches that were broadcast live on US television.

Every Premier League match is shown live via the NBC Sports App, but not every single match is shown on television unless a TV provider offers Premier League Extra Time.

In the 2016/17 Premier League season, Manchester United was the only club that had every single match televised live in the United States (not factoring in Premier League Extra Time).

While Liverpool and Manchester United did well in the average TV viewership, West Ham ended up with a better average viewership than Tottenham Hotspur. But the Lilywhites had 13 more games than the Hammers that were televised, thus not being an apples-to-apples comparison.

Here’s the list of the most popular Premier League clubs on US television during the 2016/17 season:
