Final Ratings: NBCSN Gets Best EPL Audience Yet; Canada Tunes In For Aussie Open

NBCSN drew 1.019 million viewers for last Sunday’s Chelsea-Manchester United match, marking the net’s best audience for an EPL match to date and the second-best viewership for any EPL game ever on U.S. cable TV. Chelsea-ManU is second behind only ESPN’s ManU-Manchester City match on April 30, 2012, which drew 1.033 million viewers. Five of the six most-viewed EPL matches ever on cable TV have come on NBCSN during the ’13-14 season (NBC).

GENIE IN A BOTTLE: A total of 4.4 million viewers watched the Li Na-Eugenie Bouchard Australian Open women’s semifinal across TSN, RDS and RDS2, marking the most-viewed Aussie Open match ever on Canadian TV (TSN).
