They really don't. Others might for them, sure, but in what way does the NFL itself market anyone outside of a few QBs?

By showing all teams regularly on monday night and thursday night football.

The nfl markets all the TEAMS rather then just a few Players in a few teams like the nba.

That's why they are able to consistantly draw super high numbers for almost every game.

The NFL hardly markets every team. When is the last time Jacksonville or Kansas City has been regularly featured? The NFL consistently markets the best teams or the teams that draw the best ratings. Giants, 49ers, Packers, Bears, Cowboys, Steelers, Ravens, Patriots etc.

And it's easy to regularly show games when you only play 16 games in a season.

Does anybody have the top 10 markets for game 7 and the nba finals overall?
I'd like to compare it to the NHL.

Detroit went a decade between non-Thanksgiving national TV appearances, so that's one theory debunked

It will be curious to see how much the Red Sox on FOX tonight will cut into NBC's Boston ratings. No conflict in Chicago.

Game 6 wont be broadcast on NBC in Detroit (Or any area that gets Detroit's broadcast. I do and I'm nearly an hour away) due to Detroit fireworks. It'll be broadcasted on a lower local channel.

If that sounds absolutely stupid to you, it's because it is. I can't imagine the mother ship will be very happy that one of their top five markets isn't broadcasting the game.

I guarantee those fireworks draw better than a 7 for WDIV. They sell themselves as being the station for local events.

Plus it'll be on CBC anyway.

Being on CBC doesn't really help NBC's case...

Detroit is far from the only major market that's not clearing the Finals.

I'm pretty sure you could have found that pretty easily on Wikipedia, but overnight ratings are only calculated based on the biggest cities.
Final ratings take into account all markets, which for a number of events including hockey always implies lower final ratings.

Anyway, ratings for Game 5 are not particularly good. I understand it's saturday night, but it still seems to confirm that even with two prestigious markets involved, a close series and a barnburner of a Game 4, non-elimination SC games will only move the needle so far, and the NHL may have already maximized its limited audience potential (again, for non elimination games).

Top 10 markets outside BOS/CHI for Game 5: Providence, Buffalo, Milwaukee, Vegas, Hartford, Ft. Myers, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Phoenix, W. Palm

Steve Lepore‏@stevelepore39m
10 weakest markets for Game 5: Memphis, Dallas, Cincy, Birmingham, Kansas City, Sacramento, Atlanta, San Antonio, Louisville, Houston.

Steve Lepore‏@stevelepore38m
Over 200,000 households watching in the NY market for Game 5. That's why the area has three teams.

Steve Lepore‏@stevelepore36m
Los Angeles was the only other U.S. market outside Boston/Chicago besides NY to produce more than 100K households (154K) for Game 5.

Thanks for commenting on the ratings without actually posting what they were or providing a link.

Very useful post.

My guess would be they have some obligation to broadcast the fireworks which was never a problem before because the playoffs were long over by this time of year.

Stupid in my opinion, but apparently there's nothing that can be done about it...

... Oh and yeah, being a top market despite roughly 25% of your market watching the Canadian broadcast would suggest you're a hockey town. Sorry.

NBC’s Gm5 of Stanley Cup Final (8:15-11P; Bos-Chi) drew 4.0 overnight rating, up 54% from last year’s Stanley Cup Final Gm5 (LA/NJ: 2.6)

Boston delivered a 24.4. Chicago received a 22.1.

WDIV is moving the game to WADL for one reason - $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

The international fireworks is a big deal in Detroit and WDIV will reap a lot of revenue selling local ads. If the Wings were involved the NHL might have elected not to play on Monday.

Throw in that CBC is now available in HD in Detroit the decision makes sense.
