Poll: 16% of NFL fans say they won't watch the Super Bowl

Super Bowl 52 is just a few days away, and after NFL regular season TV ratings fell by nearly 10% this season on average, one of the biggest questions pundits and sports media have is: Will the Super Bowl ratings be good?

If the results of a new survey from Seton Hall University are to be believed, the answer might be no.

Seton Hall surveyed 706 Americans across the country, via landlines and cellphones, from Jan. 29 to Jan. 31. The first question asked people how closely they follow the NFL. Of those who said they follow it “very closely,” a group the survey identifies as NFL fans, 16% said they won’t watch this year’s Super Bowl. The poll has a 3.8% margin of error.      https://finance.yahoo.com/news/poll-16-nfl-fans-say-wont-watch-super-bowl-204026174.html

TV Ratings: More Fatigue for 'Sunday Night Football'

The Steelers' narrow win drops year-to-year and week-to-week.

Sunday's super-slim 39-38 victory for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Baltimore Ravens was the biggest thing going for broadcast on Sunday night.

NBC's latest Sunday Night Football averaged an 11.6 overnight rating among households. Before time zone adjustments, it easily won the night — topping even the midwinter finale of AMC's The Walking Dead. But, stacked against a season high for the same week a year ago, the game suffered a pretty steep drop.

The Steelers' win was down 30 percent from the huge Giants-Cowboys game a year ago. And, even with such a tight matchup, this week's marquee primetime game was down 11 percent.

Good news for Fox: its own NFL overrun, from the day's biggest game, propelled huge gains for its primetime lineup. Before any adjustments, The Simpsons averaged a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49 in Fast Affiliate returns. Bob's Burgers (1.6 adults) was also improved, while Family Guy held steady with a 1.2 rating in the key demo.

ABC aired a special Frozen short, which pulled in a 1.2 rating in the key demo. On CBS, Wisdom of the Crowddropped to a 0.7 rating in the key demo after a steady 60 MinutesNCIS: Los Angeles (0.8 adults) and Madam Secretary (0.7 adults) rounded out the evening.

ALL 4 NFL PLAYOFF GAMES HAVE POOR RATINGS

1. The NFL had a disastrous weekend when it came to ratings. Numbers have been down all season and it was more of the same for the wild-card games. The biggest surprise was that the best game (Panthers-Falcons) had the biggest decrease year over year. Yes, markets were a big factor, but that was a competitive and entertaining game. Here's the breakdown:

Titans-Chiefs (14.7) was down 11 percent versus last year's Raiders-Texans game.

Falcons-Rams (14.9) was down 10 percent versus last year's Lions-Seahawks game.

Bills-Jaguars (17.2) was down 10 percent versus last year's Dolphins-Steelers game.

Panthers-Saints (20.4) was down 21 percent versus last year's Giants-Packers game.

New England Patriots 'on verge of imploding' because of 'escalating feud' between Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft over QB's 'snake oil salesman' training guru

New England Patriots 'on verge of imploding' over feud

The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots are fracturing at the highest level, according to a report that depicts a growing rift between quarterback Tom Brady (lower left), coach Bill Belichick (upper right) and owner Robert Kraft (lower right). The 13-3 Patriots have been struggling with the role of Brady’s personal trainer and business partner, Alex Guerrero (with Brady, left), who Belichick recently barred from the team’s sideline and plane. Also, the Patriots were forced to trade soon-to-be free agent Jimmy Garoppolo –believed by many to be the heir apparent at quarterback in New England – to the San Francisco 49ers as the 40-year old Brady has given no indication he plans on retiring. The Patriots have a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs and will host a divisional-round game on Saturday, January 13.

NFL THANKSGIVING PRIMETIME RATINGS CRASH BY 10%

Black Friday will have different meanings to different people this year, for 99.9 percent of American businesses it will be a day when profits soar and businesses finish the year strong.

For the NFL, it will be the day they received yet another reminder that they’re doing the opposite of those things.

In what has become a consistent pattern for the league this year, the NFL put a bad product on the field, insulted the country with another protest by a privileged millionaire, and got a bad television rating. Thanksgiving’s primetime clash between the Redskins and the Giants registered a 9.7 in metered markets, down 10 percent from last year.

Roger Goodell's wife ran a secret Twitter account to fire back at critics of the NFL commissioner and blast coverage of anthem controversy

Roger Goodell's wife argued under fake Twitter account

Jane Skinner Goodell on Thursday admitted to running the now-deleted Twitter account @forargument under the name 'Jones smith', using it to clap back at unflattering NFL coverage. 'It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration-and love,' Mrs Goodell said in a statement. Screenshots and conversation threads from the deleted account show that Mrs Goodell was primarily interested in nitpicking press coverage of her husband, including the controversy over players kneeling during the national anthem.

Defiant NFL players continue to kneel while others raise their fists after Trump warned them to stand for the national anthem while Marshawn Lynch sports an 'Everybody vs Trump' T-shirt

NFL players continue to kneel for national anthem

Several NFL players continued to kneel while others raised their fists in protest during the national anthem for a second straight week on Sunday as they defied a fresh demand from President Donald Trump to stand. Roughly 30 players on the San Francisco 49ers took a knee with a standing player placing a hand on the shoulder of a kneeling player (top). Others, such as Denver Broncos outside linebacker Brandon Marshall (bottom left), stood but raised their fists in the air as the Star-Spangled Banner played. And in a unique protest, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch arrived for his team's game against the Broncos sporting a T-shirt the read: ‘Everybody v. Trump'.

George Foreman blasts Kaepernick and Durant over protests

George Foreman (main) spoke out on the Offended America podcast on Monday, saying that athletes who protest are likely seeking attention. Kaepernick (top right), an NFL quarterback currently seeking a contract, famously kneeled during the national anthem before games last season. Durant (bottom right) has announced that he wouldn't visit the White House with NBA champs the Golden State Warriors, saying of President Donald Trump: 'I don't respect who's in office right now.'

Navy Commander calls out NFL's Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during national anthem

U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris took aim at NFL star Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday when he said that those who served during the attack on Pearl Harbor never failed to stand for the national anthem. His remarks at a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack generated a lengthy standing ovation from the crowd. It comes after the San Francisco 49ers quarterback has taken to kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and the treatment of minorities.
