Bears-Lions Helps ESPN Win the Night among All Key Male and Adult Demos

Last night's ESPN Monday Night Football telecast - a 24-13 Detroit victory over the Chicago Bears in the Lions' first MNF game since 2001 - helped ESPN win the night among all networks - broadcast or cable - in all key male and adult demos. The telecast averaged:

· 11.9 household coverage rating (10.3 U.S. rating)

· 11,765,000 households

· 16,378,000 viewers

Notes:

· ESPN won the night among all networks in all key male and adult demos and finished second in households and viewers

· MNF led all programs Monday night in the delivery of all key male and adults demos and finished second in households and viewers

· The MNF telecast ranks as the fifth-largest audience on cable television in calendar year 2011 in both households and viewers (behind four other ESPN telecasts - two BCS bowl games, the final MNF telecast of last season, and this season's Redskins-Cowboys MNF game)

Local market ratings:

· Chicago: 18.7 rating on ESPN and 13.3 on WCIU, for a combined 32.0 rating.

· Detroit: 10.7 rating on ESPN and 25.7 rating on WXYZ, for a combined 36.4 rating.
