Top 10 most-watched Premier League games on US television for 2016/17 season

Now that the 2016/17 Premier League season has been put to bed, it’s time to take a look back to see which games were the top 10 most-watched matches of the EPL season.

Not surprisingly, the matches featured in the 12:30-2:30pm ET time slot on the over-the-air NBC network ruled the airwaves, making the Premier League games more accessible than any other channels in the United States.

Viewership for the Premier League in the United States was down 15% this season compared to last year, but there were still six games that exceeded 1 million viewers. The club that benefitted the most from the NBC Saturday lunchtime time slot was Manchester City, who ended up having four of their games featured in the top 10:
