5. TELEVISION: Record audience for America-Chivas

Univision's prime-time coverage of Mexico's SuperClásico between Club America of Mexico City and Guadalajara Sunday in Mexico City drew 4.3 million viewers ages 2 and over, making it the largest audience for a club soccer game on American television in the past 13 years.

The viewership of the America-Chivas game surpassed the U.S. viewership of every National Hockey League telecast on both NBC and Versus (formerly OLN) during the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 NHL seasons with the exception of Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup final series between Carolina and Edmonton, which aired on NBC and drew 5.45 million viewers age 2 and over.
