Monday Night Football � Audience Up 15% for Year

ESPN Wins Prime Time among All Key Male Demos for Fourth Straight Week

ESPN's Monday Night Football � the Pittsburgh Steelers' 23-20 overtime victory over the visiting Baltimore Ravens � earned an 8.8 rating, representing an average of 8,595,000 homes (11,783,000 P2+). For the fourth straight Monday, ESPN won the night in the key male demos among all networks, broadcast or cable, and the game drove significant traffic to ESPN.com's NFL content.

For the NFL season to date, ESPN's Monday Night Football is averaging a 9.6 rating and 9,335,000 households (12,972,000 P2+), up 14%, 15% and 20%, respectively from last season through five games (8.4 rating; 8,117,000 homes; 10,767,000 viewers). For 2008, the five Monday Night Football telecasts represent cable's five biggest audiences of the year.

ESPN's presentation of the "game around the game," which included NFL studio programming starting at 3:30 p.m. ET through the conclusion of NFL Primetime at 2:40 a.m., delivered 19.1 gross household coverage ratings for its MNF coverage.
