NFL television ratings fell 9.7 percent during the 2017 regular season, according to numbers registered by Nielsen.

A typical game was watched by 1.6 million fewer people this season as compared to last season (14.9 million versus 16.5 million).

The drop comes after the NFL had hoped to stem an 8 percent ratings slide from last season by experimenting with the format for television commercials and trying to speed up the game.

Going to drop even further once the new stupid ass "No lowering your helmet" rule takes effect... I still have no idea how in the hell they plan to officiate that.

Martellus Bennett with lucid thoughts, I'll be damn - who would of guessed?

 

Bennett mentioned a different popular theory to explain the ratings dip: too many games

Keep in mind that Netflix now has more paying subscribers in the US than all of the top cable TV companies, combined, as we exclusively reported earlier this year.

 

...

 

Teens (12-17) : 17.6% drop year-over-year (much larger than in Q1 2017) and a massive 45.5% contraction since 2012;
 Older Millennials (25-34) 12.2% decrease year-over-year that was larger than Q1’s drop, along with a considerable 32.2% drop over 5 years;
 Gen Xers (35-49) a 7% decline that continues to accelerate over time (Q1’s drop was 4.8%; Q4 2016’s was 1.6%), and representing a 15.8% contraction over a 5-year period;
 Adults aged 50-64: down 1.8% year-over-year
 Adults aged 65:  down by 1.2% from the previous year

It looks like NFL viewership is about average with the general TV viewership.

It was once above average? Isn't that what the networks paid all that money for, not average?

It is still the king of ratings, I did mistype what I meant.

The NFL drop in viewership is consistent with the drop of the viewership as a whole.

Other sports like nba are gaining viewers during this time. It is fair to place part, but not all of the blame on the NFL.

The NBA has never in its 72-year history had a more successful regular season than it did in 2017-18, according to Forbes. Television ratings increased on each of four networks that broadcast games. Attendance records were broken. So were records for merchandise sold. The value of franchises was at an all-time high.

Comparing programmed broadcasts with live broadcasts is very deceptive.There are dozens of options for programmed TV without commercials and with better content. This is not true of live TV. Why was there no comparison to other live broadcasts?
The NFL was always untouchable, the top dog in TV ratings but now they Lumped in with all the other crap.

NBA RATINGS UP NEARLY 30 PERCENT ON ESPN, TNT

As the NFL weathers another season of ratings declines, TV's No. 2 sports league is enjoying year-over-year lifts with fans in the demographic most coveted by advertisers.
According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, National Basketball Association telecasts on ESPN and TNT together are currently averaging 2 million viewers per game, up 15 percent compared to the year-ago draw of 1.74 million.

Footballs popularity drops

Overall, the poll found, the number of people who say they follow the NFL has declined sharply since 2014. In January, 49 percent of those polled said they follow the league closely. In January of 2014, the follow closely figure was 58 percent. Thats a 9-point drop.

But look closer at the numbers and there is a strong racial component to the decline: its being driven by white Americans.

Since 2014, the number of African Americans and Hispanics saying they follow the professional football closely has remained flat, according to the poll. But among whites, the number is down 12 points from 59 percent in 2014 to 47 percent in 2018.

And digging deeper, gender plays an enormous role. Among white men, the follow closely number has declined an astonishing 22 points, from 69 percent in 2014 to 47 percent in 2018. Over that same time the follow closely number among women was unchanged at 47 percent.

Maybe if football was more diverse white people would be more interested.

I myself still love football. My perfect Sunday is sitting in the living room by the fire with my big screen on multi screen mode. Ill have the Redzone channel, CBS, Fox and NFL Network on. Since my wife is in a couples league with me she watches too. I love it.

If Iowa is away we will do the same on Saturday for college football. Man, I love football season.

I miss football. One of the few things from home I really miss. I CAN watch the games here, but steaming them a day late just isnt the same.

Even before I left though, I wasnt as into it as I had been in the past. Part of that is probably the fact that both my college team (Tennessee) and pro team (Titans) had sucked for some time.

I was less into football the past few years just due to time commitments and being a dad. I really got rewarded last season though and Im looking forward to it this year.

I thought the Titans were turning it around. How is Marriota?

They are turning it around. Made the playoffs and won a game last year, even with a horrible coaching staff and a ridiculously outdated offensive system.

Mariota had a down year last year. Mostly due to the fact that the offense was absolutely not tailored to his strengths.

I think the team is gonna breakout this year. A zone blocking scheme is a much better fit for Henrys running style. Adding Lewis as a change of pace is a big upgrade over a hurt demarco Murray. Corey Davis has a year under his belt and looked to be figuring it out at the end last season.

Im tempted to pay for the NFL streaming package for the titans this season. But since the games are in the middle of the night, Id have to watch them the next day anyway.

Now my vols, theyre a focking train wreck.
