NFL Week 3 ratings up 4 percent on CBS

NFL Week 3 ratings up 4 percent on CBS

The Redskins-Raiders game on NBC's Sunday Night Football was down 11 percent on the equivalent game from Week Three in 2016, Forbes reported.

The drop in ratings comes after amid a growing dispute between the NFL and President Donald Trump regarding players refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem. (Last year's Week 3 Monday night game featured the less popular New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons.) Indeed, there are many factors affecting week-to-week and year-to-year NFL ratings that have nothing to do with protests or even with football itself. As a whole, Week 3 of this year saw a three percent bump from last year's.

Overnight ratings for the telecast fell to a 11.6 rating for the game where the New York Giants defeated the Oakland Raiders.

Now, after hundreds of NFL players protested the national anthem on Sunday, the NFL is reporting the lowest ratings they've seen all season. In a tweet sent right before Sunday's games, the president said "NFL attendance and ratings are way down".

CBS' pregame show, "The NFL Today", was up 33% compared to past year, and scored its best overnight rating since 2010.

For whatever reasons people choose to attribute to the NFL's ratings stumble, now more than a year old and something that will surely continue this season, it is not a problem that can really be diagnosed over a single weekend - let alone one game. And are the NFL's TV ratings sinking overall?

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now, out, he's fired".

The "Monday Night Football" matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals made for the strongest ratings for a "MNF" game this season. "He's fired, '" Trump told a crowd in Alabama on Friday night. With attention on players kneeling during the national anthem, it's led the NFL's media partners to air the various renditions from each stadium as this has become a huge national story.

The Nielsen figures also don't include numerous Sunday afternoon games that are shown to a regional audience, but not a national one.
