"Monday Night Football's" 49ers-Redskins Telecast Helps ESPN Win the Night among All Networks in Key Male and Adult Demos

Last night's Monday Night Football telecast - a San Francisco 49ers' 27-6 victory over the Washington Redskins - helped ESPN win the night among all networks (broadcast or cable) in all key male and adult demos. The MNF game ranked as the top telecast of the night across cable and broadcast in those same categories.

The 49ers-Redskins telecast earned an 8.2 US rating, representing an average of 9,534,000 households and 13,159,000 viewers (P2+), according to Nielsen. Coverage peaked from 9:45-10 p.m. ET with a 9.3 US rating.

In San Francisco, the game delivered a 10.1 rating on ESPN and a 12.8 on WPIX-CBS, for a combined 22.9 rating in the market. In Washington D.C., the game delivered a 16.9 rating on ESPN and a 9.1 on WDCA-IND, for a combined 26.0 rating in the market

The top 10 metered markets (in addition to the markets of the competing teams) were Sacramento (19.1), Richmond-Petersburg (18.5), New Orleans (16.0), Las Vegas (15.0), San Diego (14.8), Norfolk (14.2), Seattle-Tacoma (13.9), Baltimore (13.4), Greensboro (12.1) and Phoenix (11.7).

Through 12 weeks (13 games), ESPN's MNF is averaging an 8.4 US rating, 9,776,000 households and 13,344,000 viewers in 2013, increases of four percent versus the same period in 2012.

Saints (9-2) vs. Seahawks (10-1) on MNF This Week:

ESPN's MNF returns this week on December 2 at 8:25 p.m. when the NFC's top teams meet in one of the most anticipated games of the season - Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints (9-2) vs. Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks (10-1). With a combined 19-3 record in 2013, the Saints and Seahawks boast the second-highest collective winning percentage all-time for MNF opponents (.864), among teams playing at the 10-game mark or later in a season, according to Elias Sports. Seattle enters the game with a franchise record 13-game home win streak. This is the first meeting between the two teams since the Seahawks defeated the Saints 41-36 in a 2010 NFC Wild Card game.
