NEW YORK — The World Cup semifinals each were seen by an average of more than 12 million viewers in the United States on ESPN and Spanish-language Univision.

ESPN said Germany's 7-1 rout over host Brazil on Tuesday averaged 6,643,000 viewers and Argentina's penalty-kicks win over the Netherlands the following day averaged 6,823,000.

The games, which both kicked off at 4 p.m. EDT, are the two highest-rated World Cup semifinals on any U.S. network, ESPN said Thursday.

Univision said its coverage of Brazil-Germany averaged 5,804,000 and Netherlands-Argentina 5,444,000, also its most-viewed semifinals.

ESPN's telecasts have averaged 4,289,000 through 62 games, up 43 percent from 2010's 2,989,000 and 108 percent from 2006's 2.06 million.
