All Hail Taranto!

Apparently it's been some time since [The Atlantic's Peter] Beinart watched a football game. "Monday Night Football" was a big deal in the 1970s and '80s. But it started a long decline in the '90s. and in 2005 ABC ditched it and it went to cable (ESPN).

Nowadays it is often the lowest-rated nationally broadcast game in any given week. NBC's "Sunday Night Football" gets the marquee match-ups, whereas Mondays are often left for the worst teams--so bad, in fact, that the 49ers are to appear next week on "Monday Night Football." -- James Taranto
