MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL DELIVERS ESPN'S TWO HIGHEST-RATED PROGRAMS OF 2007

MNF COVERAGE OUT-RATES ALL NETWORKS IN PRIME TIME

ESPN.COM NFL CONTENT YIELDS 66 MILLION PAGE VIEWS, UP 27% FROM 2006

Last night's special 2007 season-opening doubleheader of ESPN's Monday Night Football delivered the network's two highest ratings of the year and the second- and third-largest household audiences on cable this year, in addition to significant traffic to ESPN.com's NFL content.

The Cincinnati Bengals' 27-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens (7 p.m. ET), earned an 8.6 rating, representing an average of 8,288,000 households (11,080,000 viewers � P2+).

At 10:30 ET, the San Francisco 49ers' 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals received a 6.9 rating. An average of 6,625,000 households were watching (8,500,000 viewers).

For the usual MNF time slot (8:30 � 11:45 p.m.), ESPN averaged a 9.7 rating, with a 9.9 rating for 8-11 p.m., the highest of any network (broadcast or cable) for the night in prime time. The games rank as the second- and third-largest household audiences on cable television in 2007, behind only Disney Channel's High School Musical 2 (9.4 million HHs).

From the kickoff of ESPN's NFL studio programming at 2 p.m. through the conclusion of the doubleheader game, ESPN delivered 19.2 gross household coverage ratings for its MNF coverage.

Also, NFL content on ESPN.com, including �Monday Night Surround,� accessed via computers and mobile devices generated more than 66 million page views from Monday through Tuesday at noon, a 27% increase over the same period last year, according to Web measurement tool HitBox.
