Monday Night Football coming to U.K. — at 1 a.m. Tuesdays

Mnf There probably isn't a huge demand in the United Kingdom to see live American football at 1 a.m., but whatever audience there is will be able to tune in to "Monday Night Football" when ESPN begins broadcasting it live in the wee Tuesday hours on the other side of the Atlantic this fall.

Britain will also get a chance to get to know ESPN's Chris Berman through the 90-minute "Monday Night Countdown" show that will air before each game. Hopefully, that will clue Brits in that the football they're about to see won't have any goalies, corner kicks or 1-0 victories.

The first U.K. broadcast will be September 14, one week shy of the 40th anniversary of "MNF."
