Report: ‘Sunday Night Football’ Sees Another Ratings Decline

The ratings for “Sunday Night Football” declined on Oct. 8, according to a report.

This week’s NBC‘s “SNF,” which showed the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the Houston Texans, saw a 3 percent declined compared to last week’s “SNF” game, which saw the Seattle Seahawks beat the Indianapolis Colts.

According to Deadline.com, the Oct. 8 game got a 10.6/18 in metered-market results. It’s the season low for the show.

“To add further context, last night’s injury-filled SNF was up just 4% in MM numbers from the comparable game of last year, when the New York Giants battled the Green Bay Packers,” said Deadline.

But, the Oct. 9, 2016, game was up against Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton town hall debate.

“Last week’s 8:30-11:45 PM ET SNF went on to snag a 5.8/21 among adults 18-49 and 16.73 million viewers, which was down from the week before. The Giants-Packers game last year eventually drew a 5.9/16 in the key demo and an audience of 16.62 million,” Deadline reported.

Meanwhile, the NFL has become the least liked major sports league in America after a wave of national anthem protests by players, coaches, and owners, according to a Winston Group poll, as reported by the Washington Examiner.

The poll found that favorable ratings for the NFL dropped from 57 to 44 percent from the end of August to the end of September. It has the worst rating among major U.S. sports—including baseball and basketball—at 40 percent.
