Fewer watched World Cup

The World Cup soccer final where France defeated Croatia was seen by just over 16 million people in the United States on Sunday.

While that made the Sunday morning telecast on Fox and Telemundo the most-watched program of the week, it represented a significant drop in viewership since the 2014 World Cup finale, which featured Germany and Argentina. The Nielsen company said that game had 26.5 million viewers on ABC and Univision.

While Croatia was a compelling underdog story, the small country probably wasn't a big television draw. The World Cup in general had to fight for attention in the United States because the U.S. team did not qualify this year.
