In a game with two teams of losing records, it seems like barely anyone cared they were playing!
As Breitbart reported:
There was a time when Bill Belichick and the Patriots meant bug time ratings for whichever network was televising them, that time is apparently over.
The Patriots took on the New York Jets on Monday night and not only was there virtually no one in the stands to watch the game, but there was also virtually no one watching at home either.
According to Sports Media Watch:
The Patriots’ narrow Monday Night Football win over the Jets averaged 9.83 million viewers on ESPN, down 30% from last year (Cowboys-Giants: 13.98M) and the network’s least-watched Week 9 contest since 2004 (Browns-Ravens: 7.71M).
