World Cup Ends Big!

Not like last year's Super Bowl big, but for the U.S., it got HUGE ratings.

Sunday was the final game in the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. In the end, Spain won over the Netherlands with an extra-time goal, but the real winner was the FIFA itself.

This year's games went down in history as the most-viewed World Cup telecast ever on English-language TV in the United States. It ranked as the third most watched program in Univision’s history and with the game playing on several different networks, the total U.S. audience for the final game was 24.3 million.

Impressive!

Congrats to Spain!

    I wish more Americans watched this sport. I don't know about middle America or the West Coast, but soccer/football is a big deal on the East Coast.

    Did you report the world wide number? People should know it was watched by over 700 million people when they want to insult it.

    it was a day before yesterday sweety, do your research, don't copy 'n paste from yahoo!, they might even sue your skinny and fitted ass, and yes, that cup was nice, especially because of ALL the european hotties that i could see…i widh i was there in south africa, but i'm not sad, four years from now, it's gonna be here in brazil(i don't think so, since ALL the projects are so late, i don't know if brazil will be able to host the cup, neither the olimpics in 2016, if our politicians quit robbing the public coffers and start to spend our tax money in the country and quit using it to "help" european countries, it might happen, lets pray for it…..)

    I'm not sure about how great the World Cup as a whole was… But I know that the Spain / Holland game was amazing…
    Casillas was a wall…
    The dutch were awfully violent, they don't eserve the cup, it was like watchin a bad version of Kung-Fu Fighting…

  23. 23

    you are deluded if you think whatever sport this superbowl thing is is bigger than the world cup the key word is WORLD



  24. 24

    I always feel sad every time the World Cup ends, should wait for four more years =/
    Though I had to watch Brazil lose from the Netherlands and see German lose from Spain after that (they were the countries I supported), I'm so happy that Spain won the tournament. The Netherlands always play so damn dirty–did you see that kick to Alonso's chest?
    And by the way, Casillas is HOT!
