NFL Advertising Revenue Falls Sharply Despite Higher TV Ratings

(Bloomberg) -- For the TV industry, this National Football League season has brought good news and bad news.

The good: Ratings for professional football -- the most valuable type of TV programming -- are up 5 percent compared with last year. NFL broadcasts are averaging 15.8 million viewers this season, boosted by record-high scoring and more competitive games.

The problem is, advertisers typically buy commercial time before the season starts and negotiate ad prices based on ratings from the previous year, and last year’s ratings were down 10 percent from 2016-17. As a result, ad revenue for NFL broadcasters like CBS Corp., Comcast Corp.’s NBC, Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN and 21st Century Fox Inc. fell 19 percent in the first two months of the season, according to Standard Media Index.

“The effects of the lower audiences last year are spilling into this season,” said James Fennessy, chief executive officer of the advertising research firm.

If this year’s NFL ratings increase holds through the end of the season, however, it could mean those TV networks will see a bump in advertising revenue next season.

I know I don't care. I haven't watched football in over a year and will not again! I wonder when the NFL is going to  realize they need to placate the fans, not the players.  The NFL is ruled by spineless cowards. Cowards!!! Fans like me are furious at these dumb black players. They're embodiments of the American dream, yet they're still angry and disrespectful. Screw them, I quit.

Back to protesting! Players from five teams including the Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks raise fists, take a knee or leave the field during national anthem at NFL preseason games

Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson take a knee during the

In total 15 players from five teams - the Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens - staged a protest during the national anthem. Quinton Jefferson (left) was one of three Seahawks players to leave the field, the Dolphins' Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson took a knee (center) and the Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins (right) raised his fist ahead of preseason games on Thursday night. The league and player's union have yet to issue a policy on the protests for the 2018 season, though the NFL had previously told everyone to stand or stay off the field.
