Ratings game: Monday Night Football helping give ESPN a huge October

ESPN is on pace to be cable television’s most-watched network for a second consecutive month. Largely because of strong ratings for Monday Night Football, ESPN through October 25 had averaged 3.73 million total prime-time viewers, a 28 percent improvement from last year, Anthony Crupi writes. Crupi also writes that according to Nielsen ratings, ESPN is sweeping the three core TV demos for the month, drawing 1.9 million adults 25-54, 1.88 million viewers 18-49 and 855,000 viewers 18-34.
