ESPN's "Monday Night Football" Giants-Buccaneers Matchup Delivers 12 Million Viewers

· Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli Registers 1.6 Million Viewers and Increases Audience from Week 10

· Season-to-Date: Monday Night Football Audience Remains Up 13% from 2020 and Up 6% from 2019

ESPN's Monday Night Football Week 11 presentation featuring the New York Giants at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (November 22, 8:15 p.m. ET) delivered an audience of 12 million viewers (ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes). The viewership peaked in the first half (9:15 - 9:30 p.m.), shortly after the Buccaneers established a 17-10 advantage en route to a convincing 30-10 victory.

Despite matching the second-largest margin of victory this season on MNF, the audience resulted in ESPN being the most-watched network (broadcast or cable) in primetime and Monday Night Football (on ESPN) earning top status in the most-watched telecast list among household, viewers and all key demos on Monday night.

Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli on ESPN2 delivered an audience of 1,575,000 up from the brothers' Week 10 audience (1,554,000 viewers). Now, the viewership for the six most-recent episodes have delivered ESPN's highest alternate telecasts among all sports. Note: Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli was also available on ESPN+ in Week 11; however, viewership on that platform is not accounted for in this release.

Monday Night Football Season-to-Date Averaging 13.3 Million Viewers

For the season, Monday Night Football's average viewership is 13.3 million viewers, up 13% from 2020 and 6% from 2019. Additionally, Monday Night Football has seen its year-over-year audience increase in nine of 11 weeks this season. Note: ESPN Deportes is not included in the season-to-date averages.

Viewership reported by Nielsen for ESPN and ESPN2 includes streaming audience across ESPN, NFL and Yahoo Sports properties.
