    Hi Mitch,

    Any idea what NFL Network did from 7:30 pm to Midnight, when they normally would’ve been airing the game?


    • Mitch Metcalf

      Thursday 10.3.2019 NFL Network 7:30 pm NFL 100 GREATEST 577K P2+ L+SD / 0.15 P18-49 rating L+SD; 8:30 pm NFL 100 GREATEST 274K / 0.07; 9:30 pm NFL 100 GREATEST 124K / 0.04; 10:30 pm NFL 100 GREATEST 63K / 0.02

    Thank you Mitch.

    I bet the minute-by-minute on that 7:30-8:30 window would be fascinating.

    By my math this all led to a 92% week-to-week drop for the NFL postgame show. Impressive!
