Sad to say, I wasn't interested in the tourney, so I didn't watch it . Although I may watch one or two replays to see what changes I could do with making my game better.

I watched the championship from 3 different locations therefore those numbers are fixed I say, fixed!

I was hoping for 10 Million+, but this is amazing all the same. I wonder how many people watched the Olympics, or a Superbowl, or the Presidential Debates, to see how this compares.

Go Riot!

Inuyasha There was a Major League Baseball game going on at the same time that was picking up around 6.5 million viewers, I believe.

Where would one find the actual replay file for the tournament games?

Twitch has the livestream footage archived, so that would be the commentated/live versions of the games. I'm not sure if Riot plans to release any replay files, since it's not like the League client can actually read those officially anyway.

American Football is also a major sport in the US, where progaming generally has barely any spotlight.8mil is highly impressive considering the situation.

Not to mention football has a long history and there is no stigma attached to it. I'm sure thousands of non-football fans gather around and watch the Superbowl just because that is what everyone else is doing and its an excuse to gather at a social event. Hell, I know I do.

However, the large majority of people would scoff at the idea of gathering at someone's house to watch e-sports if they were not video game fans.

That also brings up the point of:
One is on TV. (outside of Korea)
One is not.

Superboal vs Esports is really just comparing apples to oranges, yes they're both fruit, no they're not the same fruit. Judging apples on how easy they are to peel and slice without a knife is a tad silly.
