NFL Draft didn’t stop derby viewers

According to the Orlando Sentinel soccer fans wanting to watch the Galaxy – Chivas game last Saturday didn’t seem to give up when the NFL Draft kept going…and going…and zzzzz.

ESPN2 scored big, relatively anyway, with Major League Soccer’s first intracitymatchup last weekend between the L.A. Galaxy and Chivas USA, drawing in a 0.4 rating, making it the channel’s most-watched MLS game ever.

ESPN will probably spin this as people watching the end of the draft stayed and watching the game. But there can be no denying that MLS fans across the country bought into the hype the league had around the game and were excited to see the first intracity match-up in league history.
