NFL football ratings

Daily blog: NFL football games are usually the most-watched TV shows and consistently score high ratings. Last year there was a drop in ratings and this year they are down even more – viewers for the first two weeks of Sunday afternoon NFL games dropped 11% from last year. Sunday night’s week 3 game between the Redskins and the Raiders had the lowest week 3 ratings since 2006.
What are some reasons that viewer numbers for televised NFL games might be dropping? Why are decreased ratings important to the NFL’s profits

The NFL football games have been talked about a lot in the past 2 weeks. The reason why viewers have quit watching is because of the players actions. During the National Anthem, the players have been taking a knee instead of standing up with their hand over their hearts. The reason they are doing this is because of race discrimination. People don´t want to watch the games because the players are showing disrespect to our country. Decreased rating are very important to the NFL´s profits because they are losing money when fans stop watching.

Hulu, NHL, TNT

Daily blog post: "Two days after inking a partnership with the NHL to stream the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Hulu announced Friday a marketing push that will feature its logo splashed across TNT’s broadcast of the NBA Playoffs.
Hulu’s ad spots will begin airing this Sunday and will last through TNT’s First Round, Conference Semifinals and Western Conference Finals coverage of the NBA Playoffs, during which Hulu will serve as TNT’s presenting sponsor.
As part of the deal with Turner Sports, Hulu will produce exclusive branded content featuring NBA on TNT’s on-air talent, who will highlight the breadth of Hulu’s live TV service."
Question - How does Hulu benefit from this arrangement? How does the NHL benefit? How does TNT benefit?

Hulu, NHL, and TNT all get advertising.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

Worst/Least effective promotion

Blog: Look at the promotions featured in the article linked below. Which promotion do you think is the worst/least effective? Why? 

The promotion that was least effective would be the brittany spears one because she was an advocate for being a good parent but then was caught driving with her daughter on her lap which is not safe and illegal. She went back on everything she was trying to tell people to do. The Newark Bears made fun of the incident and many people got into the game free.
