Source: NFL Considering Selling Rights To More Thursday Games
A source said that the NFL is "considering selling another slate of Thursday games to a media outlet." The source said that league is "disappointed" NFL Network "hasn’t attracted more viewers for the 13 Thursday night games it airs each season." The NFL "believes that adding a second game to create double-headers on some Thursdays could create more national interest." Execs "have discussed the issue with media outlets but the league isn’t shopping a specific package and no formal offers have been received" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 10/16).
