Miami Is Watching the World Cup More Than Any Other Market in America
Miami leads other markets with a combined rating of 4.0 for all the games broadcast on ESPN and ABC. That's a full half-point higher than Washington, D.C., the next best market for World Cup broadcasts, with a combined rating of 3.5.
It's even more impressive when you realize the ratings don't take into account the World Cup broadcasts on Univision. Spanish-language broadcasts are said to be averaging an even more impressive 5.4 rating.
With ratings like those, maybe someday they'll trust us with a major pro team again. Don't hold your breath, though (because you really should be using it to blow your vuvuzela).
