    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.

    It was a great year for the NFL. Best in recent memory.

    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.
