Packers-Bears Gets Cable's Best Raing in 2010
NEW YORK (AP) -- Monday night's game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears was the highest-rated cable telecast of the year.

ESPN says "Monday Night Football" had an estimated 17.5 million viewers, making it the fifth-most watched cable program ever -- behind a Monday night game from last season featuring the Packers against former quarterback Brett Favre.

The network said Monday night's 12.5 rating was well over the season average so far of 10.9.
