"MNF's" Vikings-Giants Telecast Helps ESPN Win the Night among All Networks in All Key Male and Adult Demos

Last night's Monday Night Football telecast - a New York Giants' 23-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings - 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 Vikings-Giants telecast earned a 8.4 US rating, representing an average of 9,711,000 households and 13,243,000 viewers (P2+), according to Nielsen. Coverage peaked from 9:45-10 p.m. with a 9.7 US rating.

In Minneapolis, the game delivered a 12.3 rating on ESPN and a 38.0 on WCCO-CBS, for a combined 50.3 rating in the market. In New York, the game delivered a 10.1 rating on ESPN and a 5.6 on WPIX-CW, for a combined 15.7 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (in addition to the markets of the competing teams) were New Orleans (16.6), Las Vegas (14.2), Tampa-St. Petersburg (14.1), Kansas City (13.8), Richmond-Petersburg, Va. (13.6), Norfolk (13.0), Washington, D.C. (13.0), Sacramento (12.7), San Diego (12.6), and Seattle-Tacoma (11.9).

Through seven weeks (eight games), ESPN's MNF is averaging an 8.5 US rating, 9,802,000 households and 13,347,000 viewers in 2013, virtually flat versus the same period in 2012.

ESPN Digital Media's NFL content across all platforms - ESPN.com, mobile Web, apps and WatchESPN - through eight Monday Night Football games over seven days so far this season continue to log significant growth, generating an average minute audience of 563,000 during telecasts, an increase of 17 percent compared to the same time period last season.
