A NEW U.S. NO. 1 IN RATINGS

The U.S. team's 2-1 loss in extra time to Ghana on Saturday was the most-watched soccer game in American television history, Nielsen Co. said Monday. It surpassed the 1994 Brazil-Italy World Cup final. The contest, seen on ABC and Univision, drew 19.4 million viewers, Nielsen said. In 1994, 18.1 million U.S. viewers watched Brazil defeat Italy 3-2 in a shootout to win its record fourth World Cup. The U.S. team's 1-1 tie with England on June 12 now ranks as the No. 4 most-watched match on American television.
