Well, Monday nights in the fall are officially testosterone night, with the beginning of Monday Night Football tonight at 6 p.m. The Broncos kick off their approach of a third Super Bowl against the Miami Dolphins and the high powered television night doesn't stop there. Any wrestling fan can tell you that the most watched cable television show is WWF's Monday Night Raw.
