This coming Monday will be the last Monday Night game televised by ABC, at least for the forseeable future. Sister network ESPN will be broadcasting the Monday games next season, and week 17 won't have a Monday night game due to college Bowl season. So, this is it. New England and the Jets. After the highs and lows that MNF has brought us for 36 seasons, this is what we are left with. Hopefully it is a game to be remembered.

In its heyday, it seemed like everyone was watching. Not only did it showcase the best of America's most popular sport, it did it with style and drama. "Monday Night Football" revolutionized the way sports were shown on television -- but not just that: "Monday Night Football" revolutionized when sports were shown on television. Long before ESPN, "Monday Night Football" propelled them from weekend afternoons to primetime.

This isn't going to change much, ESPN has been doing MNF for the last few years anyway, both station being owned by the same company. It was just broadcast on ABC.

ABC had a good run with it.

ABC will have Sunday night games, which will probably end up being what MNF is now. there are many homes that do not have cable access and that was one of the things that made MNF what it is. the fact that anyone who had a television could tune in to watch it.

Frank Gifford and "Dandy" Don Merideth have taped short features that will be presented during tonights game...too bad Howard Cosell won't be with them

it is hard to believe that Monday Night Football has been on for 36 years, when it debued it was a revoulutionary idea, sports in prime time during the week, this was well before ESPN and it's zillion college basketball games a week, the marriage of sports and entertainment in what had been "family time" on television was a bold gamble that has paid off in spades for ABC. it is the end of an era

I got to see some of the retropspectives that they did list night, that was pretty cool. Didn't catch the post-game, they had a special on called "Lights Out". Did anyone catch that?

Nope, missed it Gibbs. I've been thinking on this move, it's probably to generate more revenue, get more people to sign up for cable. It's not like Disney isn't about money.

I heard last night that ESPN will no longer have NFL Primetime on Sunday nights. I wonder why that is?

A move to ABC? It all seem redundant as Disney owns them all.
