Unless I misunderstood him - he's not talking about the networks as much as the fans. But more fans watching = more money for networks.

The reality is - for teams in the east and central - western games suck and probably are a big downer for ratings. While us diehards will watch games that start at 9:30 (and that is 10:30 in Detroit or Columbus)...the more casual fans often will not. And it's casual fans that drive any league.
