Speaking for myself living in the St. Louis area. When the Rams game comes on Monday night(unless I go out) I'll be watching the game on the tube but listening to the local radio team on the FM dial.

For the rest of the year, I'll listen to the MNF game on the CBS radio local station.

Wow. Already projecting bad ratings even before the FIRST regular season game. That's not good.

I knew they should have hired Oprah for the third position. She'd get ratings.

ABC should hire McMahon (WWF) for marketing advice. Maybe get Lita to drop kick Dennis Miller every time he tells a lame joke. Subtitles for Eric Dickerson?

A lot of people are likening him to Cosell. TV guide even did a feature comparing the two.

I knew Howard Cosell. Dennis Miller is NO Howard Cosell...

MNF announcers, TV or radio, is a lose-lose proposition. TV, you get Miller. Radio, you get Boomer Essian.
Turn all the sound off and do your own play by play.

At least Miller is better than Cosell. God, I detested that man.

Of course, at least Humble Howard knew something about sports...

Miller is atrocious.... Go to a two man booth<BR>

I agree Miller is bad on MNF. He has no business announcing football. His HBO show has cracked me up before and is good....I can't stand him now.
