The beginning of the new NFL season was not exactly a winner for the league and NBC.
While better than anything on any of the Big 4 have done in the overnights in months, those numbers are down a sobering 12% from the early results of the Denver Broncos’ tight 21-20 victory over the Carolina Panthers in last year’s kickoff on September 8, 2016.
Long season short, that’s not a good start for either the NFL or networks hoping to gain some traction from last year’s ratings blows.
To put some greater context, the 2016 kickoff game, which was down from both the 2015 and the 2014 openers, went on to snare a 9.4/33 rating among adults 18-49 and 25.19 million viewers.
