Default Jags-Steelers highest rated cable show since 1993

ESPN's Monday night NFL game was watched by more viewers than any show in cable TV history except a 1993 debate between Al Gore and Ross Perot.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2595034

That is an incredible rating for a 9-0 game.

For those of us who have been riding for a while the bandwagon has a lot of new passengers, but I believe it is fair to say America's Team doesn't play in Dallas anymore.

It was probably only counting the start of the game haha. Can't imagine all the casuals staying tuned at 10:00 halftime with the score 0-0.

Still impressive though.

Some people still appreciate a good defensive battle once n awhile.
To me it was a great game with a real sucky outcome.

Monday night's rating reflects why the NFL tells the networks what they will pay and other sports have to fight for every $.

Baseball needs to pray for a Yankees-Red Sox playoff series every year to get decent ratings and the NBA is lost if the Lakers do not make it to the finals (test patterns get higher ratings than hockey).

The NFL gets the ratings even when 2 small market taems like the Steelers and Jax meet -it is the product and not the size of the markets that sells the NFL.

yeah agree, the size of the market does not matter its the quality of the teams. man mondays game was a complete slug-fest on defense. even though it was the lowest scoring monday nigh game in history it was still great 2 see 2 great defenses go at it.
