David Beckham's MLS Debut Breaks TV Ratings Records

David Beckham's Major League Soccer debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy on Thursday drew a record 1.5 million television viewers for an MLS game, ESPN said.

The Galaxy fell 1-0 DC United, with Beckham coming on as a 72nd-minute substitute.

ESPN News said the figures outstripped the previous record - 1,092,000 which saw DC United against San Jose in 1996.
