Monday Night Football Wins the Night Among All Networks

Giants-Redskins Game Earns 8.4 Rating and 11.3 Million Viewers; MNF Wins the Night in Viewers for Fifth Time This Season

Last night's Monday Night Football game � the New York Giants' 45-12 victory over the Washington Redskins � earned an 8.4 rating, representing an average of 8,366,000 households (11,343,000 viewers � P2+). MNF led all the night's programs (broadcast or cable) among households, viewers and all key male and adult demos, making ESPN the top network for the night in all categories. It is the fifth time ESPN's Monday Night Football has won the night for total viewers among all networks this season.

For 2009, ESPN's MNF telecasts represent cable's 15 biggest audiences (and 16 of the top 17) among households, as well as the top 14 among viewers. Through 15 weeks (16 games) of the NFL season, ESPN's MNF is averaging a 10.3 rating and 10,206,000 households (14,202,000 P2+), up 17 percent, 18 percent and 20 percent, respectively, from last season.

ESPN's MNF 2009 season finale next week (Dec. 28) will feature an NFC North rivalry when Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings continue their push to the playoffs when they travel to the Windy City to face Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears at 8:30 p.m. ET.
