Forty years ago, Monday Night Football revolutionized sports broadcasting. So maybe it’s time to expand the franchise to another night.
The non-Sunday night edition of Sunday Night Football drew more than 23.7 million viewers on Tuesday night, according to NBC Sports P.R.
The Vikings-Eagles audience also was larger than all but six Sunday Night Football games played since NBC acquired the package in 2006.
The viewership represented a whopping 25-percent increase over the audience for last year’s Week 16 game.
So, basically, we love our football. And we hope that the NFL and the NFLPA don’t take that love for granted.
