A huge 'Monday Night Football' boosted NFL ratings, despite Trump comments

The protests spread rapidly this past weekend following the president's criticism of people involved. "The Washington Redskins" 27-10 win over the visiting Oakland Raiders netted an 11.6/20, which is the worst of the three Sunday night games this season, according to Deadline.com.

To come up with overnight ratings, Nielsen takes the percentage of households watching in 56 US markets and comes up with an overnight average - so an 11.6, for instance, means that 11.6% of households in those 54 markets tuned into the game on NBC on Sunday night.

The biggest factor in the weekly increase was the Monday Night Football game between the Cowboys and Cardinals.

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!" And are the NFL's TV ratings sinking overall? The network's two afternoon national games, one between the Green Bay Packers and the Cincinnati Bengals and the other between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers, were basically even with previous year.

Trump even went so far as to try to persuade National Football League fans to 'refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country'. That wasn't the case this past Sunday, as the growing protest of players to President Trump's tweets made the anthem newsworthy.
