Wrapping its third season with a strong contest -- a Chicago Bears’ overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers -- ESPN’s Monday Night Football was the most-watched series on cable television during 2008.

The total sports network’s 17 Monday Night Football telecasts in 2008 averaged an 8.9 household rating, 8.68 million households and 11.96 million viewers, according to Nielsen data. Those performances represented gains of 3%, 5% and 7%, respectively, over the 8.6, 8.28 million homes and 11.2 million viewers during its sophomore season coverage in 2007.

The season culminated with a 9.8 rating, 9.58 million homes and 13.8 million viewers for Bears-Pack on Dec. 22, with the contest ranking as the third-largest household audience on cable this year.

Tony K makes the games almost unwatchable for me, but it seems I'm in the minority with those ratings.
