Last week's USA v. Slovenia World Cup match was the most viewed soccer game ever for ESPN. Many others drew very nice numbers for ESPN and ESPN2.

Note: The viewership average is for the entire telecast (including pre-game) as measured by Nielsen, not just the "game window" often referred to in network press releases.
