'Monday Night Football' Ratings Buck NFL Trend & Rise Over Last Week & 2016

Among his other tweets over the last 48 hours, Trump said the ratings for NFL football were "way down except before game starts, when people tune in to see whether or not our country will be disrespected!" Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love country.

The NFL's ratings took a knee Sunday night.

The performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" was promoted on-air before it was performed, with an all-caps onscreen legend reading "National Anthem Coming Up Next" on top of a shot of US troops holding flags of the USA, the state of Arizona, and the P.O.W./M.I.A. movement. At a game Monday night between Dallas and Arizona, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined his team's players in kneeling before the national anthem was performed, then standing during the song itself.

For the first time in its 38-year history, Mike's Grande Burger in Oroville will not have its television screens turned to Monday Night Football.

In the preliminary metered-market results, NBC Sports coverage of Sunday Night Football was down about 10 percent versus last year's comparable matchup.

BUT the game was also a blowout.

Trump's comments led to plenty of discussion on the National Football League pregame shows on Sunday and continues to be heavily covered on not just the sports networks, but the news networks as well. However, in an exclusive Action News poll, conducted by Survey USA, almost 50 percent of our viewers in the Valley say it is wrong for someone to not stand when the National Anthem is played. Together, the pregame shows on CBS and Fox saw a 19 percent increase compared to a year ago.

In fact, more people have been tuning in. They're likely to be up overall for the week after Monday night's game, he said.

CBS also took a hit to its national coverage of the Cincinnati-Green Bay game, which attracted a 13.8 rating compared to a 13.9 rating during its week-three coverage previous year.
