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.
