The NFL is still struggling for TV ratings this year as the most recent ratings show a 20 percent drop for the Week 13 edition of Sunday Night Football.
According to Sports Media Watch, the leagueâ€™s Week 13 game on NBC was
down 20 percent in both its ratings (9.8) and its viewership (17.07M)
Most of the other games were also down in Week 13 with the late CBS
game off 13 percent and 12 percent, and Foxâ€™s single-game off an even
worse 30 percent and 27 percent. However, the early CBS game was
comfortably up 21 percent in the ratings and 23 percent in viewers.
The year has not been good for the NFL. To date, ratings are off at
least six percent overall across all platforms and networks compared to
the 2019 season, according to Front Office Sports.
â€śSeason-to-date, the NFL is averaging 15 million viewers. Thatâ€™s off 6% from the same point during the 2019 season.,â€ť Front Office Sports
reported late last month.
It has already been reported that the various NFL broadcasts are way
down this year. Monday Night Football, for instance, has crashed 30
percent. Meanwhile, Sunday Night Football has tumbled 23 percent.
The 2020 ratings have thus far reversed the tiny five percent gains won
last season over 2018.
