Final Ratings: Galavision Gets Big Audiences For Mexico Matches In FIFA U-20 World Cup

Galavision averaged 1.323 million viewers for its telecast of the Mexico-Colombia FIFA U-20 World Cup quarterfinal last Saturday night, marking the fourth most-viewed Spanish language cable TV telecast ever. The network also averaged 1.15 million viewers for its coverage of the Mexico-Cameroon match on August 9. Through the first 12 telecasts of the tournament, Galavision viewership is up 272% compared to the tournament in '09.

SHARK ATTACK: NFL Network averaged 280,000 viewers for the Jacksonville Sharks' win over the Arizona Rattlers in ArenaBowl XXIV last Friday night, marking the AFL's most-viewed telecast on the network since it began airing the league's games two seasons ago. The previous high was 192,000 viewers for this year's regular-season finale, which featured the Sharks and Spokane Shock. ArenaBowl XXIV viewership is up 180% from 100,000 viewers for last year's Shock-Tampa Bay Storm matchup in ArenaBowl XXIII.

ROSE PEDALS: The Portland Invitational, which has been the only consistent stop on the Dew Tour since the series began in '05, averaged 933,000 viewers on NBC last Sunday, up slightly from 912,000 viewers last year. The audience, however, remains down from '05-08, when the Sunday telecast averaged over 1 million viewers. NBC also averaged 906,000 viewers for Saturday coverage of the event, up 38% from 659,000 viewers last year.
