Eagles Soar As ESPN's 'MNF' Scores With 15 Million Viewers


The Philadelphia Eagles weren't the only ones to score big on Monday Night Football.

ESPN averaged a 10.8 rating (9.3 nationally), 10.8 million households and over 15 million viewers with its Nov. 15 coverage of the Eagles' 59-28 demolition of the Washington Redskins, according to Nielsen data. The Eagles' output, keyed by six touchdowns (four throwing, two rushing) by Michael Vick, over former quarterback Dononvan McNabb, was a MNF record. 

The telecast, which set the pace in all key male and adult demos on all of TV last night, ranks as cable's sixth most-viewed program of the year among viewers and seventh most-viewed among households. 

Through the first 10 weeks (11 games), ESPN's MNF averaged a 10.6 household rating, 10.6 million households and 14.7 million viewers, slight increases in all measurements versus 2009.
