The sports network announced that an average of 779,000 viewers watched Liverpool dismantle once-mighty United 3-0.
NBCSN has had four of the top five most-watched EPL games in cable history in the two years since it began broadcasting.
The game was part of a doubleheader with the north London Arsenal-Spurs derby and an average of 725,000 viewers watched both games, making it the top-viewed cable doubleheader in EPL history.
To put all these figures in perspective, consider that the 37 MLS games on NBCSN in 2013 averaged a puny 112,000 viewers, according to Wikipedia.
