Ratings Crash 35% for Sunday Night Football, Lowest Week 7 Number Since 2011

The NBA finals, with the Los Angeles Lakers lost 70% of its TV audience from last year.  Baseball is losing it TV audience.  Now we know that the NFL is also spiral down the toilet.  The stadiums and arena have players disrespecting the American flag.  The Team owner have signs saying only ONE race matters.  And please do not say you support the police.  Worse, Drew Bees, the New Orleans quarterback was seen sporting a cap that idolized a known rapist.  Professional leagues are donating tens of millions of dollars to racist, hate groups—just so thy will not be boycotted.  Well, they lost that bet.  The public is boycotting them for their open support of political radicalism and racism.

“The Week 7 edition of Sunday Night Football featured the Seahawks and the Cardinals, an exciting contest between two of the most exciting teams in the league. Though, the contest only averaged a 7.9 rating and 14.31 million viewers. That figure represents a 35 percent decline from last year’s Week 7 matchup between the Cowboys and the Eagles(12.2), and a 33 percent decline in viewership (21.45 million).

While it should be considered that SNF did go against Game 5 of the World Series, the decline is still troubling. As Sports Media Watch reports, “Keep in mind last year’s head-to-head between SNF and the World Series took place in Week 8. Compared to that game — Packers-Chiefs — ratings still fell 24% (from 10.4) and viewership 22% (from 18.32M).”

So, this year, SNF actually fell even more compared to last year.”

If I wanted to support hate and anti-Americanism I can attend a ZOOM meeting of Democrats.

Ratings Crash 35% for Sunday Night Football, Lowest Week 7 Number Since 2011

The NFL may be beginning to show signs of a ratings rebound for its daytime windows, however, primetime is still in the midst of a massive decline.

The Week 7 edition of Sunday Night Football featured the Seahawks and the Cardinals, an exciting contest between two of the most exciting teams in the league. Though, the contest only averaged a 7.9 rating and 14.31 million viewers. That figure represents a 35 percent decline from last year’s Week 7 matchup between the Cowboys and the Eagles(12.2), and a 33 percent decline in viewership (21.45 million).

While it should be considered that SNF did go against Game 5 of the World Series, the decline is still troubling. As Sports Media Watch reports, “Keep in mind last year’s head-to-head between SNF and the World Series took place in Week 8. Compared to that game — Packers-Chiefs — ratings still fell 24% (from 10.4) and viewership 22% (from 18.32M).”

So, this year, SNF actually fell even more compared to last year.

Monday Night Football has fared better, but is still seeing declines. Monday’s Bears-Rams matchup fell 3 percent from last year. Not anywhere near as big a drop-off as SNF, but still concerning that a game between two good teams from the nation’s second and third largest television markets couldn’t reverse the trend of four consecutive weeks of declining ratings.

Why have the primetime games suffered why the daytime widows appear to fare much better? The answer likely comes down to options. The exploding, record-setting numbers on primetime cable news networks suggests that people are far more intrigued by politics than sports.

Comments

  1. Continue to kneel, continue to disrespect the nation that gave you the opportunity to become millionaires.

    Then Watch the ratings drop even further. No income? No pay.

    I for one have stopped watching NFL, NBA, and any other where this attitude and actions are tattooist.

    Any questions?

    Keep acting like children. Keep the attitude that black culture is more more important then creating a integrated society. (remember they say they will not dilute to make them safe and part of the nation)

  2. The only sport that seems to fair is NASCAR. When Bubba put a BLM sign on his car another drive put an All Lives matter on their car with no problems for either of them
