The TV ratings are horrible? Last year a regular season EPL game got over a million viewers in the middle of a Monday and got over a 10.0+ rating among male college students. Even at the college I go to there are a ton of soccer fans, many of them Americans. We like soccer, we just want the best quality soccer.
