WokeFL Ratings for Sunday Night Wokeball Plummet 23%, 28% In the Demo

Are you ready for some WokeBall?

Even with the usual ratings gold of Jerry Jones' team on the field, the NFL and NBC didn't get that win -- at least not in the early numbers. Despite two teams with big national followings, SNF snared a 4.7 in early ratings among adults 18-49 and 14.81 million viewers last night.

In numbers certain to change, that's a fall of 28% in the demo and a hard decline of 23% in sets of eyeballs from the early numbers of the the September 8, 2019 SNF season debut. While the early Nielsen data lacks West Coast numbers -- kind of important when you have a team from the Los Angeles market in the mix -- his result is going to be hard pill for the NFL and NBC to swallow.

CBS sports had earlier told its broadcasters to avoid commenting on the protests attention gambits, because people are sick of them.

What happens on the field will be discussed by CBS announcers. What isn’t happening on the field will not be. Almost like it should be.

First reported by Forbes, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus gave his broadcasting team clear directives to not interject personal opinions on Black Lives Matter, kneeling, social justice of any kind during the broadcast.

"Our announcers on site at the games are not gonna condone, they're not gonna condemn what’s going on," McManus said. "They're going to report it and they're going to move on.

"We need to thread the needle just the right way, because there are people who are tuning in just to hear about football. So we need to make sure that we don't overdo the emphasis on what's going on in our country, but we’re not gonna ignore it."


I don't think that'll be enough.
