NFL Week 7 Finals: Downward Trend Continues Unabated on TNF (down 17%)
sportsmediawatch ^ | By Paulsen on 10/21/2016
Posted on 10/24/2016, 7:50:37 AM by 11th_VA

At the risk of getting repetitive, fewer viewers tuned into a primetime NFL game.

The Week 7 Bears/Packers Thursday Night Football game earned 14.2 million viewers on CBS and NFL Network Thursday night, down 17% from Seahawks/49ers last year (17.1M) and down 12% from Jets/Patriots in 2014 (16.1M). Ratings were not immediately available.

The Packers’ win earned the fourth-smallest audience for a Thursday Night Football simulcast on CBS (22 telecasts). Three of the five smallest audiences have come in the past three weeks, with 49ers/Cardinals in Week 4 ranking second (12.1M) and Broncos/Chargers in Week 5 fifth (14.5M).

The game was also the fifth of six TNF games this season to decline from last year, with each of those five hitting multi-year lows.

Despite the decline, TNF about doubled competing coverage of the MLB National League Championship Series on Fox Sports 1 (7.2M).

In adults 18-49, Bears/Packers had a 4.5 rating — down 24% from last year (5.9) and down 17% from 2014 (5.4M).

The product on the field is getting worse and worse each year.

They keep manipulating practices by limiting the duration, contact, and drills. Just sloppy football all around.

College football is getting worse by their rules. Watched a West Virginia player get ejected for "targeting" Saturday.

This is the type of shit that is turning me away from football.

Absolute harambe.

Football, being the strongest sport was the last to feel the effect of the Internet era. Baseball has taken a big hit as its aging fan base hasn't been replaced by younger fans.

Golf has completely fallen off a cliff:

49ers Named the Worst Pro Sports Franchise By ESPN
Splice Today ^ | October 24, 2016 | Chris Beck
Posted on 10/24/2016, 11:58:14 AM

Fans of American professional sports can easily reel off teams when asked to name the worst franchises in all of sports. Hockey’s Toronto Maple Leafs and the NFL’s New York Jets are two contenders, as are Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats and MLB’s Tampa Bay Rays. You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’d put the San Francisco 49ers on such a list, as they're one of the most storied franchises in NFL history, but ESPN just named them the worst franchise in all of sports. Number 122 out of 122.

This is tough for us 49ers fans to swallow. We know all about all the team’s recent misfires and performance problems, and the Niners are perhaps the worst team in the NFL this season, but we're now to believe that even perennial laughingstock franchises like the Edmonton Oilers and the Cleveland Browns are superior to the team that's won five Super Bowls and played in one as recently as 2013?

My first reaction was to examine ESPN’s methodology. I saw that “bang for the buck” was important criteria, meaning that the team’s winning percentage is compared to its ticket prices. San Francisco charges top dollar for an inferior product at its new billion-dollar stadium in Santa Clara, but this isn't of much concern to those who watch the games on television. If this, where the team is ranked at 113, were removed, the 49ers would at least he bumped above the very bottom position...
