    not sure if this has been posted before, i thought this would be a nice change from all the JETS trash talk threads,
    i have stopped watching/listening to sports shows for a couple of days now,it seems any channel you watch/listen to has nothing but jets and pats to talk about,A TOURIST to this country may thing the superbowl is a few weeks early, nobody anywhere wants to talk about any other game...the more i listen/read about the JETS being classless the more restless i get for the game, i dont think i have ever waited for a game as much as this one (well maybe the 2007 SB)


    Five years ago, none of the top 15 most-watched shows were NFL games

    I wonder if there's an interesting philosophical or sociological reason for the shift, rather than just marketing. Be an interesting discussion, but maybe for a different part of the forum.

    Interesting thought - though I would tend to think it ends up being much simpler: football provides the best quality of product of all the major sports right now. And by a wide margin.

    Every once in a while - and its not often :D - the viewing public gets one right. Football is the most entertaining sport, and the NFL is the best sports business.

    Nope. I only watch movies and football. Maybe that's my answer, lol.

    TV shows suck, and no other major sport has all of the local team's games over-the-air. I'd probably watch more Celtics if I didn't have to pay $100 a month for the privilege (no need for cable otherwise). It's the perfect storm for football.

    Though with how much the NFL charges the 3 networks to show their games, they better have this kind of viewership.
