A Win - But No Cheers - For Monday Night Football

The Monday Night Football contest between the New York Jets vs. the New England Patriots scored a 12.1 rating and a 21 share, a sharp downturn from a year ago, when the second week of the regular NFL season pulled a 16.1/27. Still, the numbers were good enough to lead ABC to a win for the night. CBS was in second place, averaging a 7.2/11, followed by NBC with a 6.7/11. UPN, which offered up a menu of first-run, black-oriented comedies took over fourth place with a 4.6/7, beating out Fox, which could muster only a 3.2/5.
