FOX ENDS FIRST NFL SEASON WITH BETTER THAN EXPECTED NUMBERS
Published January 17, 1995
The NFL on Fox finished only six percent below CBS's '93 numbers for the NFC package. Most had projected a 10-15% decline. ATLANTA CONSTITUTION TV columnist Prentis Rogers: "'Fox NFL Sunday' was clearly a success, and with [Jimmy] Johnson in the mix presumably for the next three years, the future is bright" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/16). In Minneapolis, Rachel Blount writes that Fox pumped "broadcasts full of fun and energy without distracting from the games. ... Howie Long is clearly the broadcasting rookie of the year." Blount panned Fox's promotions (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 1/16). In Toronto, Rob Longley: "The network has mixed the best of what was CBS Sports with the cutting edge of '90's TV technology" (TORONTO SUN, 1/16).
