top 10 most watched sporting events (answered)

Postby flotsamnjetsam » Fri Mar 30, 2007 3:20 am

Out of the Top 10 most watched sporting events (based on Nielsen Ratings) of all-time, 9 of the 10 are Super Bowl's.


What sporting event is in the top 10 other than the 9 most watched Super Bowl's?


Need the event AND the main reason why it made the top 10.

Soccer (Fifa World Cup), because it's a worldwide sport.

Just a guess.

I started to look it up, but had difficulty finding it.

Thus, I decided to take an educated guess. The Daytona 500 has been around since 1959, so I figured that it at least had a chance at being the correct answer.
