ESPNRecord low ratings for Monday Night Football (New York Giants vs. Atlanta Falcons) still came out on top on Cable by a wide margin. Whether we can blame the announcer team of Kornheiser, Tirico and Jaworski or it's just that the Vick-less Falcons are not interesting remains to be seen. It seems as if it's just part of an overall trend towards lower ratings. Sunday Night Football on NBC is suffering the same ratings trend. But take heart, the trend of increased DVR viewership should offset the impact of lower ratings. More people watch the commercials during sports contents.
