"Monday Night Football's" Patriots-Panthers Telecast Helps ESPN Win the Night among All Networks

Last night's Monday Night Football telecast - a Carolina Panthers' 24-20 victory over the New England Patriots - helped ESPN win the night among all networks (broadcast or cable) among households and viewers as well as 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 Patriots-Panthers telecast earned a 9.9 US rating, representing an average of 11,480,000 households and 15,772,000 viewers (P2+), according to Nielsen. Coverage peaked from 11:15-11:30 p.m. with a 11.6 US rating.

The 9.9 U.S. rating for the Patriots at Panthers game is up 25 percent from last season's corresponding Monday Night Football - 7.9 US rating for Chicago at San Francisco on November 19, 2012.

In Boston, the game delivered a 12.0 rating on ESPN and a 24.1 on WCVB-WMUR-ABC, for a combined 36.1 rating in the market. In Charlotte, the game delivered a 17.5 rating on ESPN and a 20.3 on WSOC-ABC, for a combined 37.8 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (in addition to the markets of the competing teams) were Providence, R.I., (25.9), Greensboro, N.C., (22.9), New Orleans (18.9), Las Vegas (17.0), Greenville, N.C., (16.8), San Diego (15.8), Raleigh-Durham (14.9), Tampa-St. Petersburg (14.8), Seattle-Tacoma (14.5), and Ft. Myers-Naples (14.4).

Through 11 weeks (12 games), ESPN's MNF is averaging an 8.5 US rating, 9,795,000 households and 13,359,000 viewers in 2013, up in ratings and audience by two percent versus the same period in 2012.

ESPN Digital Media's NFL content across all platforms - ESPN.com, mobile Web, apps and WatchESPN -continues to log significant growth, generating an average minute audience of 542,000 during telecasts, an increase of 19 percent compared to the same time period last season.
