NFL Draft To Primetime?

Friday, May 04, 2007

According to an Industry source the Minnesota Star-Tribune is reporting that the NFL is considering moving the start of the NFL draft to Friday Evening....

The thinking on this issue appears to be twofold. One, carrying the opening round in prime time means more viewers would be available to watch. Two, some NFL officials believe it would be a good idea to give teams time to decompress before Round 2.

The question becomes how much higher can the ratings get for an event in which the highlight is hearing names called?
It's an interesting idea, but I don't think any program has survived Friday night since the days of TGIF. Seriously, do any of you readers watch Numbers, or the Ghost Whisperererer?
