NBC nets 3.6 million for USA-Colombia women’s Olympic game


The viewing audiences for the US Women’s National Team in the 2016 Rio Olympics continue to increase. Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw with Colombia on NBCSN from 6-8pm ET was watched by an audience of 3.6 million, which is greater than any of the US Men’s National Team games from the 2016 Copa America tournament.

In fact, the 3.6 million number is greater than each of the USWNT games at the 2012 London Olympics with the exception of the gold-medal final against Japan.

This follows on the heels of the 1.3 million who tuned in to watch the US Women’s National Team defeat New Zealand 2-0, and the 2.9 million who watched the USA defeat France 1-0 on Saturday.

The USA’s next game is Friday against Sweden in the quarter-finals (Noon ET kickoff on NBCSN and Sling Blue).
