NFL TV Ratings has Massively Declined Again in 9th Week

Over the last couple of weeks, NFLs ratings had declined massively making it no joke for the people who love to watch the game. Now the league is having a serious viewership problem that has never been anticipated. Ratings dipped dramatically within the first Week 9 if you compare it to last year, with prime time of Broncos-Raiders Football Sunday Night matchup dropping by 20 percent according to the report by Austin Karp of the Sports Business Daily. These ratings from Super Bowl betting odds were massive given that many had never predicted that it one day get to the level.

In the past, viewers were always happy with the ratings especially when dealing with the issues. In particular, the Sunday night game was a huge concern for both Roger Goodell as well as the NFL owners. It was within prime-time matchup, which it featured defending the Super Bowl champions against a common up-and-coming team that has best young quarterback in whole of the NFL. While these statistics could have changed after a given time, it has remained competitive throughout with many viewers opting for other options.

However, the ratings weren’t there after the drop-off from the last year’s Eagles-Cowboys game that was prime time in just week 9. This might be a key note for many people who are interested in viewing these games on their TVs for longer part of the day. How about the new Hillary Clinton emails scandal?

Karp also noted that majority of people are watching the breaking news in regards to the FBI finding no new email found in the recent Hillary Clinton emails batch. Many of the common viewers would rather spend their time watching American politics given that the election time are nearly as opposed to watching the games especially during afternoon games slate on both CBS and Fox.

While most of the soap operas levels had intrigued higher with the US election thus stealing some eyeballs from most people who could otherwise be watching their game football. Until the elections are over, the ratings in terms of viewership is likely to drop unless measures are taken for those who will really needs them. For instance, the Chicago Bears had appeared on prime time just four times within the first eight weeks while Dolphins-Bengals and Jaguars-Titans also doing dismally in terms of viewership as the NFL product.

One should note that @SportsTVRatings chronicles had been working regularly on Twitter to find whether other sports are affected by the US election. The research has shown that ESPN has been posting a whopping 42 percent of uptick in the Friday night doubleheader. This was massive when compared to the previous statistics that were collected during same time last year. For instance, while the World Series that involved the Chicago Cubs has a breaking point of a 108-year championship drought showed strong ratings, which made it a reality among the three major sports for the Americans.

In the end, the NFLs executives as well as owners must start coming up with more creative that would easily entice people back to start watching their product with an aim of increasing the number of viewers.
