SBUS 199 – January 11, 2007 SBJ –NFL on TV NFL Network (in only 40M homes) averaged a 5.4 cable rating for its 8- game schedule The only potentially sour note was the fact that the flexible schedule on  NBC did not post the ratings jump that many expected The last 7 games on Sunday Night were down from the first 9 games of  the season (and also lower than the second half of ABC’s MNF run last  year) The end-of-season ratings slide had an impact on advertisers, with  major ad buyers getting “make-goods” from NBC NBC had been getting an average of $315,000 for 30-second spots NBC also pointed to SNF as a catalyst for other network shows such as  “Heroes” Competitive parity could also be a reason for strong ratings The five highest rated NFL games on any network this season featured  the Dallas Cowboys
