Last night's Seahawks-Redskins telecast on ESPN Deportes, ESPN's Spanish-language sports network, averaged a 0.4 Hispanic Household US rating with 53,000 Hispanic Household impressions, and 67,000 Hispanic P2+ impressions, increases of 96 percent and 63 percent, respectively, over the Week 5 game last year.

The game had an average minute audience of 127,000 (up 149 percent). Additionally, it also drove ESPN and MNF to No. 1 as the most social network and program for the day on Monday.
