"Monday Night Football" Preseason Game on ESPN Up 11 Percent Year-Over-Year

Last night's Monday Night Football preseason game on ESPN - a Washington Redskins' 15-13 victory over the New York Jets - earned a 2.1 overnight rating according to Nielsen, based on the metered markets. This is an increase of 11 percent compared to ESPN's 2017 preseason opener (Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars). The game rating peaked from 9-9:15 p.m. ET with a 2.3 metered market rating.

This game also marked the preseason debut for ESPN's new Monday Night Football commentator team of play-by-play voice Joe Tessitore, analysts Jason Witten and Booger McFarland, and reporter Lisa Salters.

In New York, the game delivered a 2.0 rating on ESPN and a 4.1 rating on WABC-ABC, for a combined 6.1 rating in the market. In Washington, the game delivered a 4.3 rating on ESPN and a 6.3 on WJLA-ABC, for a combined 10.6 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (not including those of the competing teams): Richmond-Petersburg (5.7), Norfolk (5.1), New Orleans (4.7), Kansas City (4.1), Raleigh-Durham (3.7), Baltimore and Charlotte (3.4), Louisville and West Palm Beach (3.2), Jacksonville and Nashville (3.0).

Additionally, the Thursday night edition of Monday Night Countdown is up 40 percent year-over-year (0.7 vs. 0.5).
