And the top-rated World Cup qualifier on TV in Los Angeles Friday was…

Telemundo’s game between Guyana and Mexico, which was the highest-rated game that evening in the market among men 18-49 in any language, according to the Nielsen Company.

The game was watched by 2.1 million viewers nationwide. A total of 51 percent of all Spanish-language viewers in Los Angeles watched the game.

In contrast, the U.S.-Antigua & Barbuda game was on the new beIN Sports channel, which is only available on DirecTV (much to the annoyance of LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena, incidentally, who told me Monday how frustrated he was by that game’s limited distribution).
