Monday Final Ratings: ESPN Dominates Prime Time Despite Third Consecutive Decline for Opening Week ‘Monday Night Football’ Doubleheader

ESPN emerged as Monday night’s top TV network in all key figures with the Week 1 “Monday Night Football” doubleheader of New York Jets at Detroit Lions (6.21 household rating, 10.336 million viewers) and Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders (5.91 household rating, 9.607 million viewers).
The two games averaged 9.96 million viewers and 4.8 million adults 18-49 on ESPN-only from 7:08 p.m. to 1:34 a.m. Eastern (a Spanish-language simulcast of both games had aired on ESPN2). This was down 7 percent in total viewers (vs. 10.68 million) and down 9 percent among adults 18-49 (vs. 5.26 million) from the year-ago doubleheader of New Orleans-Minnesota and L.A. Chargers-Denver on Sep. 11, 2017.
This marks the third straight year the MNF doubleheader has declined from the previous year. The following are the viewer averages from 2015 and 2016:
Pittsburgh-Washington and L.A. Rams-San Francisco on Sep. 12, 2016: 11.61 million viewers, 5.75 million adults 18-49
Philadelphia-Atlanta and Minnesota-San Francisco on Sep. 14, 2015: 13.92 million viewers, 7.1 million adults 18-49
