    This is nonsensical.
    So unless you set a new record every year, no progress from the year before can be considered significant? If I used your logic, I;d say last year was super-awesome because they had so many more viewers than they did in 1957.

    Who said anything about setting records??

    If you lose 9%, and then gain back 8%, you are still 1% BEHIND what you used to be. So how can that be a "great leap", which is the only thing i took issue with? In other words, what is nonsensical is calling losing viewers "progress". It is most definitely encouraging that they are coming back, but you're still at a loss overall.

    It's a bit worse than that - if you lose 9% and then gain 8% you end up 1.72% lower than where you started.

    TV in general is a declining marketplace; anyone who is growing their audience is doing well, even if the year-ago comp was exceptionally soft.

    They also lucked out as Trump laid off the kneeling issue and there wasn't a signature concussion moment.

    Well, the players stopped kneeling so he didn't really have to lay off of anything. The league rolled over for him.

    38 million people. At 7pm on a Sunday. That's historic in 2019.

    Heh. Start a game at 6:30pm, meaning everyone in the country can watch until the end without destroying the next day, and you get humongous ratings. Who would have thought?

    I know a few people from upstate who gave up on the Bills long ago and bandwagoned to the Pats. Maybe there are more of them than I thought.

    I doubt it. Half of my family is from the area. I know they were watching and hoping to be able to rub in a loss.

    I mean...it's not accurate, but it's a nice graphic. There is no way Michigan is pulling for the Rams.

    And St Louis doesn’t appear to be too happy about the loss of their franchise.

    A significant portion of the country was snowed in yesterday, coupled with an exciting matchup with the leagues most well-known player against a hot-shot gunslinger, is what led to that number. A great day for the NFL.

    I presume the reasoning is because Brady went to MIchigan or some number of Michigan residents were Rams fans. Not that I buy either over wanting to see anyone but the Patriots win again.

    The small blue section where St Louis is located is a nice touch.

    Plus MLK Day holiday today, so many people off.

    But old hero vs young gunslinger is a good narrative. Esp following a similar narrative that went into OT.
