The Decline of Western Civilization Continues Apace

N.F.L. Games Dominate Ratings on TV - "If it wasn’t clear before, this season has underscored the point, italicized it and shouted it from the rooftops: N.F.L. football is by far the most popular form of programming on American television.

The evidence: Of the 20 highest-rated telecasts of any kind so far this television season, 18 have been N.F.L. games on CBS, NBC or Fox. In terms of the best of 2010, nothing else comes close. Of the 50 highest-rated programs during the calendar year, 27 have been N.F.L. games, including 8 of the top 10."

The point being?

The point being, other than Sunday night football NBC might as well pack it up and call it a day. There is nothing else that anyone is watching, and for the most part that's for good reason.

Precisely, Jeff. And I say that as someone who doesn't watch very much football.
