Football fans find the games no matter what

0

The NFL Network may be lacking in cable carriage, but it appears that die-hard football fans found a friend (or friendly bar) with satellite TV to watch the November 29th game in primetime. According to the weekly data crunch of Nielsen data by the Television Bureau of Advertising (TVB) to combine broadcast and cable/satellite ratings, the NFL Network telecast was the #19 show overall in the key 18-49 demo – and for subscription television second only to another NFL game, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN (#9), though both trailed “NBC Sunday Night Football” (#7). All in all, broadcast TV had 93 of the top 100 shows in the 18-49 demo, compared to seven for cable/satellite networks.
