If the NFL was hoping that Monday Night Football would put an end to their Week 1 ratings slump, they’re going to be quite disappointed.
To be fair, the NFL was facing some opposition from the broadcast networks.
Still, the NFL has to be disappointed with these numbers.
Throw in last night’s lackluster debut and the 2016 NFL season is off to its slowest start in recent memory in terms of TV ratings.
In fact, the NFL first saw a dip in its programming with the 2015 Pro Bowl which also aired on ESPN.
