Portions of ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown pregame show will be live from Times Square in New York City tonight (6-8:15 ET) before the Miami Dolphins-New York Jets Monday Night Football game at MetLife Stadium.
Host Suzy Kolber and analysts Trent Dilfer, Steve Young and Ray Lewis will be on-set (in Duffy Square, just east of the TKTS bleachers) in Times Square as part of the “A (RED) Thank You – live World Aids Day performance presented by Bank of America.” The event features U2, Chris Martin, Carrie Underwood, Kanye West and Bruce Springsteen. ESPN will air a few songs within Countdown in addition to its football coverage. ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen digital network, will carry the entire concert performance.
Some of what you might have missed from ESPN over the holiday weekend:
1. ESPN’s Iron Bowl coverage and SEC Network’s Iron Bowl Finebaum Film Room format earned rave reviews – and you can watch a Film Room replay on Tuesday.

This Finebaum Film Room thing is the second best production ESPN has ever done, behind only its World Cup coverage.
