As many of you know, the NFL kicked off this week with games on Thursday, Sunday, and tonight. How has the NFL done so far you may ask? They’ve freaking dominated in the ratings, nothing was even close.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a guy and I love football. The Bears won yesterday and the Packers lost so it’s a great day here in Chicago. Still though, the NFL’s dominance gives me pause.
As it is, there are really only 5 days of television programming – Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Sun. Friday and Saturday are basically wastelands of programming where shows are sent to die.
I count 7 new sitcoms and 3 new dramas on Monday & Thursday night. Comedies like We Are Men or The Michael J Fox Show won’t have a chance against the NFL. We saw this last year with the awesome show Last Resort getting killed by the NFL and subsequently cancelled.
I don’t have any conclusion to this post. I’m just sitting here hoping the NFL doesn’t find a way to play on any other day.
