The NFL Draft Eclipsed Every Other Sport Combined In The Ratings

The NFL draft was this weekend, and the NBA playoffs started this weekend. To get a picture of how obsessed this country is with football: the NFL Draft raked in more viewers than any other Thursday night prime-time television show, and we all know Thursday night prime-time TV is the best TV. What was second to the draft? That’s right: Sports Center. None of us will ever truly get away from the NFL– not even in April.

As for the NBA,¬†America’s Funniest Home Videos got better ratings than the NBA playoffs. This is what happens when you have a lock-out for half the season/Derrick Rose gets injured in the first game of the playoffs. Or maybe this is just what happens when you put the NBA playoffs on TNT.
