Socialized costs, Privatized Profits

NFL Ratings Woes Continue as Sunday Night Football Posts 9.0 Overnight, Lowest in Five Years

Are people getting smart to the con?

The 2016 NFL ratings decline continued Sunday, with this week’s Colts-Texans game down 38% from last year’s Week 6 Sunday Night Football match-up — according to the Sports TV Ratings industry tracking site. The game notched a 9.0 overnight rating for NBC.

Several factors must be taken into account to give context to this low number: First, the game took place opposite the highly viewed National League Championship baseball series between the Chicago Cubs and LA Dodgers, which drew Fox Sports 1’s largest audience ever. Fox Sports executive Michael Mulvihill reports that the baseball game posted a 5.0 rating.
