Patriots beat High School Musical 2 to set cable record

from ESPN:
Monday night’s last-minute 27-24 victory by the New England Patriots over the Baltimore Ravens – keeping the visitors undefeated at 12-0 – attracted the largest household audience in cable television history and broke the record for most viewers. It also made ESPN the most-watched network – cable or broadcast – that night, the third time this season MNF has “won the night.”
ESPN’s Monday Night Football averaged 12,529,000 homes (based on a 13.0 rating), breaking the record for household audience set last year when the network averaged 11,807,000 households for the New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys on October 23 (based on a 12.8 rating). The game was seen by an average of 17,522,000 viewers (P2+), breaking the record set by Disney Channel’s High School Musical 2, which averaged 17,241,000 million viewers on August 17 this year.
