ESPN captured over 10.8 million homes with their broadcast of the Monday Night Football game and New Orlean’s Saints football team’s return to the New Orleans Superdome. I think it would have been nice to see a phone number for some Katrina charities broadcast a few more times than just in the preshow. But otherwise I think it struck the right mix or game and story.
Two issues that have nothing to do with ESPN. Let’s not get into the $185 million that was spent on the Superdome while homes are still yet to be rebuilt. Second, the audience was decidedly white last night. Where were the people who were evacuees in the superdome sitting? In the rafters? (Link)
