NFL and CBS discuss how to make games shorter

By Ahiza Garcia February 16, 2017 12:12PM EST
After this season's ratings drop, the NFL is looking to fix the problem.
It recently met with CBS -- one of the networks that airs games -- to figure out a way to make them shorter.
During an earnings call on Wednesday, CBS CEO Les Moonves said the two sides had met to see if advertising could be done differently.

"We're all looking at how the product can be more efficient, possibly speeding up the games," Moonves said. "So we're looking at some reformat ideas. Obviously, we're not planning on cutting advertising."
The NFL and its partner TV networks generate a great deal of revenue from ad sales during the regular season and the Super Bowl. This season, Super Bowl LI ads cost about $5 million.
On the call, Moonves said he still thinks the NFL is "the premier property in all of media."

Related: NFL's Roger Goodell: Would shorter games boost lousy ratings?
Changing the length or format of ads is one of the things NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell proposed in early November -- when viewership was down 12% from the previous year -- as a way to boost ratings. He also said maybe instant replays could be faster.

Competition with the presidential campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was part of the reason ratings were down this season, but poor match ups and the number of weekly games also had an effect.
Ratings rebounded a bit in the postseason as competition got better, and Super Bowl LI ended up being the fifth most-watched TV broadcast in history. That was largely due to the Patriots' miraculous winning comeback.

Exactly, there's no reason why we should have commercial break right after a score. Then come back from that to watch the ball kicked out of the endzone in route to another commercial.

The commercials happen that way bc they miss their time marks for commercial breaks within the game so they have to make it up somewhere since they cant do it in the middle of a drive when there is no stoppage of play.

Now if we are talking about shortening commercial breaks then im all for it

Average amount of action is 11 minutes of the 60 minutes. Cut the amount of commercials in half and let more plays happen.

Shorten the season by like 2-3 games. Get rid of maybe 3-4 teams. Restructure divisions so they are more geography based and teams don't have to travel far for division games.

Players will be fresher. Less injuries. More stars on more teams. Idk

That's why ratings drop. Start incorporating streams like album sales and your numbers don't lower as much

I tried bringing this up in another thread...


I don't know how accurate this is but I read something about the ratings issue is not as bad as people think. It has a lot to do with people watching the games through other venues other than TV.

Something about streaming the games or watching via social media makes up for a good amount of the ratings or viewers that the NFL can't quite use or haven't figured out a way to use those numbers along with the traditional "Nielson Ratings"

Once they figure out a way to incorporate those #s everything will be back to normal or even have a higher rating than they might have anticipated

yup. they should just show all the ads during the pregame shows. ads after every other play just slows down the game. and its the same ads in every commercial break

Why not just double up by running ads that feature other ads in them?
