"Monday Night Football" Helps ESPN Win the Night among All Networks

Eagles-Colts is Top Telecast of the Night across Cable and Broadcast

Last night's ESPN Monday Night Football game (8:15-11:30 p.m. ET) - a Philadelphia Eagles 30-27 last-second victory over the Indianapolis Colts - helped ESPN win the night among all networks - broadcast or cable - in households, viewers and all key male and adult demos. The MNF game also ranked as the top telecast of the night across cable and broadcast in those same categories.

The Eagles-Colts telecast averaged a 9.2 household US rating, 10,681,000 households and 14,891,000 viewers (P2+), according to Nielsen. It peaked from 9:30-9:45 p.m. with a 10.2 rating and 16,956,000 viewers.

In Philadelphia, the game delivered a 16.3 rating on ESPN and a 13.7 on WPHL-IND, for a combined 30.0 rating in the market. In Indianapolis, the game delivered a 14.7 rating on ESPN and a 21.2 on WRTV-ABC, for a combined 35.9 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (in addition to the markets of the competing teams) included: Las Vegas (14.6), San Diego (14.5), Richmond (13.9), Norfolk (13.2), Sacramento (12.8), New Orleans (12.6), Baltimore (12.5), Phoenix (11.9), Washington, D.C. (11.8) and Jacksonville (11.5).

Through the first two weeks (three games), ESPN's Monday Night Football is averaging an 8.2 household US rating, 9,592,000 households and 13,385,000 viewers.

MNF on ESPN Deportes

The Eagles-Colts game on ESPN Deportes, ESPN's Spanish-language sports network, earned a 0.3 Hispanic household rating with 51,000 Hispanic HHs, and 70,000 Hispanic viewers (P2+), increases of 122 percent and 233 percent, respectively, over the week 2 game a year ago. Through two weeks (three games), ESPN Deportes' MNF is averaging a 0.3 Hispanic household rating with 50,000 Hispanic HHs and 84,000 Hispanic P2+ viewers, increases of 100 percent and 180 percent, respectively, from the same period in 2013.
