Yes, week 3 ratings were slightly up from last years week 3 ratings, but you're leaving one massive factor out. That week's Monday night football was on at the same time as the Trump/Clinton presidential debate that 84 million people watched. So yeah, this year's Monday game had more viewers than last years game where most people were watching the debate.

Without Monday, the ratings were down. Sunday was down 4% overall and Sunday football was down 11%. And last night was down 13%.

to help give a better understanding and removing anomoly's like the election mentioned above, here are the 2015 vs 2017 week 3 MNF ratings. 2017 still showed to better, even though the trend over the past 2yrs have been down compared to previous seasons overall:


ESPN’s Monday Night Football game – a Green Bay Packers’ 38-28 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs – helped ESPN win the night among all networks – broadcast or cable – in households, viewers and all key male and adult demos. The game was also the highest-rated program of the night in all key male and adult demos (18-34, 18-49 and 25-54).

The game averaged an 8.3 US household rating and 13,514,000 viewers (P2+), according to Nielsen. The telecast peaked from 9:30-9:45 p.m. ET with a 10.4 rating and 17,052,000 viewers.

In Kansas City, the game delivered a 10.6 rating on ESPN and a 19.4 on KMBC-ABC, for a combined 30.0 rating in the market. In Milwaukee, the game delivered a 13.1 rating on ESPN and a 34.5 on WISN-ABC, for a combined 47.6 rating in the market.

Snagging a 9.3 metered-market result and the best ratings of the season so far, last night’s MNF was a thankful ratings touchdown for a league that has been losing ground in that metric so far this season and all of last year. Week-to-week, last night’s MNF was up 7% over the Detroit Lions’ 24-10 crushing of the New York Giants on September 18, which was up over the season opener the week before.
