World Cup Watch: Brazil-Germany Semifinal sets record Twitter and Television marks

The Tuesday midday game was watched on ESPN and Univision by a combined average audience of 12.4 million making it the most-viewed World Cup semifinal ever in the U.S.

It was also the highest-rated World Cup game not involving the U.S. ever on ESPN, where records were also set earlier in the tournament for the U.S.-Portugal contest.

Curiously, viewership actually increased as the 7-1 blowout went on making it more like a car wreck on the freeway than a soccer game.

Los Angeles was the eighth highest-rated market in the nation for ESPN, while even more viewers were watching on Univision in LA.
