    No espn nfl primetime

    ESPN'S NFL PRIMETIME IS DEAD?

    It's been a Sunday evening staple for nearly 20 years. After flipping through the channels for six-plus hours, it was time to settle on one channel for an hour of in-depth highlights and analysis from each of the games.

    But all of that will change come 2006.

    One of the little-known facts regarding the new wave of NFL television contracts is that, per The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ESPN will not be permitted to show highlights from Sunday games until after midnight.

    NBC, which purchased the Sunday night package of games, has a hammerlock on the highlights, at least until the clock strikes twelve in New York. We assume that this will translate into a Primetime-style show on NBC, which will start at 7:30 Eastern time and lead into the kickoff of the Sunday night games at 8:15.

    We suspect, though, that ESPN will accept the tradeoff. After all, ESPN gets the Monday night games as of next year.

    But given that ESPN is coughing up a cool $1.1 billion per year for the rights to broadcast MNF, it's odd that the network has been necessarily stripped of its ability to host its trademark Sunday night highlight show.


    man this was my favorite highlight show to watch. I love the music and berman's quotes and sayings, like he could go all the wayyyy. Guess we all have to watch sportscenter and espn news channel now. :evil:

    Maybe the NFL Network will come up with something and broaden its fanbase a little.(cable)

    No, I looked forward to that show as soon as the Vikings game was over I love TJ and Berman doing the highlights.

    Cris Carter highlights were the best.
    Berman: "All he does"
    TJ: "Catch touchdowns"
    "Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn t work hard."

    Have you ever flipped over to the NFL network during the games on Sunday? They have two frames going, giving up to the minute scores and stats, and then a ticker on the bottome soley for fantasy stats. I almost always flip to it during commercials to check out how I'm doing with fantasy football/confidence pools.

    I bet ESPN does Primetime on monday night then, since they have MNF. Probably a combo of sunday highlights and a preview of the MNF game.
