Premier League overnight rating up slightly



NEW YORK (AP) — Manchester United’s 3-3 tie at Chelsea got a 1.0 overnight rating on Fox, up slightly from the first U.S. live telecast of the Premier League on an over-the-air network two weeks earlier.

Manchester United trailed 3-0 in Sunday’s game, which started at 11 a.m. EST, before coming back for the draw.

The rating for major markets was up from the 0.9 overnight for Manchester United’s 2-1 win at Arsenal on Jan. 22, but below the 1.3 rating for three delayed telecasts of EPL matches earlier this season on Fox. Those telecasts were before or after NFL games, depending on the market.

National ratings will be available later this week.

The rating is the percentage of television households tuned to a broadcast.
