ESPN’s telecast of Tuesday’s USA vs. Belgium FIFA World Cup match – a 2-1 U.S. loss in extra time – averaged a network record 9.6 overnight rating, making it the highest overnight rating for a World Cup match on ESPN or ESPN2, according to Nielsen.

ESPN’s television coverage peaked from 5:45 – 6 p.m. ET with a 14.1 rating.

WatchESPN peaked at 1,500,000 concurrent viewers.

ESPN’s coverage posted a five percent increase over a Saturday afternoon telecast of the United States’ loss to Ghana in the 2010 World Cup Round of 16 (a 9.1 rating on ABC).

Final numbers aren’t in on how many total viewers…. more to come.
