NFL Ratings Sacked As Season Opener Fails To Draw Viewers

The NFL is done, stick a fork in them all. They are mediocre players and scumbag thugs and criminals. America is fed up with your shenanigans. Go out and get a real job, dickheads. 90% of them will likely end up selling dope on the street corner or snatching purses from little old ladies.

Last weekend, we noted that primetime ratings for ‘woke’ Major League Baseball dropped over 30% – which joined the ‘woke’ NBA in a ratings disaster.

Now, the NFL appears to be suffering as well – with this year’s socially distanced season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs – the reigning Super Bowl champs, stomping the Houston Texans 34-20 with dismal ratings as well.

According to Deadline:

  • In early numbers, the primetime NBC game scored a 5.2 among adults 18-49 and 16.4 million viewers between 8 – 11 PM ET.
  • Now, those numbers for the 8:25 – 11:30 PM ET game itself will certainly be adjusted upward later, but right now that’s a 16.1% drop over the spectacle of the September 5, 2019 season opener among the advertiser rich demographic.
  • In an America still adjusting to the new normal of live sports in the era of COVID-19, last night’s Kansas City victory also fell 16.1% in total sets of eyeballs from last year’s fast affiliate results – but remember, those numbers will change later today. –Deadline

And while that -16.1% figure will undoubtedly improve as more data comes in, one would think viewership would increaseafter cooped-up Americans spent the last six months heavily consuming TV shows and movies (which were seemingly exhausted by the end of June).

Perhaps wokeness has taken its toll – as even a “racial unity” moment during last night’s game was booed by fans.
