ESPN's Dec. 16 telecast of the National Football League game between the
Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens generated a 9.14 household rating,
setting a network ratings high for the year, according to ESPN
representatives.

The contest -- which Pittsburgh won 26-21 -- was also the most-viewed program
on basic cable this year, with more than 7.8 million homes tuning in, ESPN
said.

The matchup also proved to be ESPN's highest-rated program since its Dec. 12,
1999, coverage of the NFL game between the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City
Chiefs, which earned a 9.17 household rating, according to the
network.
