TOUCHDOWN!

Somewhere, Dennis Miller is sad. The 33rd season premiere of ABC's Monday Night Football — featuring Al Michaels and John Madden's debut in the booth — scored the franchise's best season-opening ratings among young adults in three years. Of course, that was no thanks to its Drew Carey Show lead-in. The veteran ABC comedy got off to a disappointing start in its new Monday timeslot, notching its worst ratings ever among adults 18-49.
