Women's World Cup Draws 8.6 Overnight Rating

The women’s World Cup final on ESPN between the United States and Japan garnered an 8.6 overnight rating, surpassing the men’s first-round World Cup matchup between the United States and England, which drew a 7.3 on ABC. The top five markets for ESPN’s Sunday afternoon broadcast of the final in Germany were Baltimore (12.3), San Diego (11.8), West Palm Beach (11.7), Washington D.C., and Norfolk, Virginia.

The 1999 women’s World Cup final, won by the United States, drew a 13.3 overnight rating, but that game was played in the United States, no doubt contributing to higher numbers.

Nightline remains #1 in Late Night

With Leno and Letterman in re-runs last week “Nightline” won the week in Total Viewers and younger viewers. Last Friday — the day of the earthquake in Japan — “Nightline” had its most-watched Friday show since September, 2005. (It was last Thursday’s show that had execs doing some damage control.)

Bill Weir anchored from California last Friday and from Japan Monday and Tuesday of this week, before returning to the U.S. on Wednesday.

ABC’s ratings are based on a 25-minute broadcast, while CBS and NBC are based on one hour.
