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

ESPN's Monday Night Football - a New England Patriots' 20-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills, as Tom Brady and the Super Bowl champions remained undefeated (10-0) - helped ESPN win the night among all networks - broadcast or cable - in viewers, households and all key male and adult demos (18-34, 18-49 and 25-54). The game was the highest-rated program of the night in those same categories.

ESPN has won the night on all 11 Mondays this season among households and all key male and adult demos (10 of 11 weeks among viewers).

In Buffalo, the game delivered a 15.1 rating on ESPN and a 27.1 on WKBW-ABC, for a combined 42.2 rating in the market. In Boston, the game delivered a 10.9 rating on ESPN and a 31.5 on WMUR-ABC and WCVB-ABC, for a combined 42.4 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (not including those of the competing teams): Providence (28.2), West Palm Beach (16.1), Hartford (16.0), Denver (13.8), Las Vegas (13.5), New Orleans (12.9), Charlotte (12.7), Phoenix (12.7), Jacksonville (12.6) and Ft. Myers-Naples (12.1).
