Top 100 Shows: Monday, November 23 2015

Last night's installment of Monday Night Football hauled some of its strongest numbers of the season, while most of broadcast's Monday night series lost viewers from the previous week. Here's what you need to know about the Monday night ratings landscape:

  • Chock full of controversy, the undefeated New England Patriots defeated the rival Buffalo Bills on last night's edition of Monday Night Football on ESPN.The telecast earned a 5.1 rating in P 18-49 and 14.25 million viewers in total.It was the most-watched edition of MNF since Detroit vs. Seattle on October 5th (Week 4).Last night's telecast was the most-watched and highest-rated program across all of TV, not just cable.The 11/16 edition of MNF (Bengals vs. Texans) only averaged a 4.2 in P 18-49 and 12.2 million viewers.It will be interesting to see who ends up winning the Total Viewer battle between The Walking Dead and MNF.
  • The Voice was Monday's top-rated broadcast program yet again.Last night's episode averaged a 2.6 in P 18-49 and 10.2 million viewers.The previous Monday's episode hauled a 3.0 and 11.2 million viewers
