"Monday Night Football" Helps ESPN Win the Night

Last night's Monday Night Football game - a San Francisco 49ers' 31-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams in the 700th game all-time in the history of MNF - helped ESPN win the night among all networks in viewers, households and all key male and adult demos. The game ranked as the top telecast of the night across cable and broadcast among the key male demos, as well as adults 18-34 and 18-49.

The game averaged a 7.9 household US rating, 9,224,000 households and 12,712,000 viewers (P2+), according to Nielsen. It peaked from 9:30-9:45 p.m. with a 9.2 rating and 15,002,000 viewers.

In San Francisco, the game delivered an 8.1 rating on ESPN and a 15.9 on KPIX-CBS, for a combined 24.1 rating in the market. In St. Louis, the game delivered an 8.2 rating on ESPN and a 7.5 on KPLR-CW, for a combined 15.7 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (in addition to those of the competing teams) included: Sacramento (20.2), Las Vegas (16.7), San Diego (15.1), New Orleans (13.2), Phoenix (11.9), Seattle (11.4), Indianapolis (11.3), Norfolk (10.4), Baltimore (10.3) and Richmond (9.8).
