The biggest Monday Night Football game since, at a minimum, Bears-Dolphins in 1985 also has generated the biggest rating for a Monday Night Football game since the franchise made the switch to cable in 2006.
Per SportsBusiness Daily, the Packers-Vikings Don’t-Call-It-A-Grudge-Match grudge match generated a metered-market rating of 14.2, which likely will make it the highest-rating program in cable television history.
It’s a 65-percent increase from last year’s overnight rating for the Week Four game between the Ravens and the Steelers.
In Minneapolis, the game garnered a staggering rating of 58.3. In Green Bay, the rating was 49.7.
