MAKING THE PITCH: ESPN earned a 0.7 overnight rating for Sunday's Germany-Canada FIFA Women's World Cup game, the network's first telecast of the tournament, "more than twice the rating" of the MLS Fire-Red Bulls game that followed it (USA TODAY, 6/28). Germany-Canada averaged 14.1 million viewers in the host country, a record for a women's soccer game in Germany. The previous best was 11.4 million viewers for the '03 World Cup Final. In Canada, the game averaged 684,000 viewers, the highest Women's World Cup audience ever in the country (FIFA).
