NFL Ratings Increase For Second Straight Year

Ratings for National Football League games rose 5% in 2019, making it the most-watched season since 2016, the league said.

During the 2019 regular season, an average of 16.5 million people tuned in to watch NFL games, according to Nielsen data cited by the league.

This is the second straight season of viewership growth for the NFL, after it lost a chunk of viewers in 2017.

At the time, a variety of possible reasons were cited for the decline, including protests during the national anthem, overexposure of NFL programming and challenges in the TV business as consumers shift from traditional pay-TV packages to digital services.
