Must See TV: NFL Moves Draft To Thursday Night

The NFL certainly knows how to create a television event....

 

The NFL draft will move to Thursday primetime next year on April 22, with the first round starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.


Then, it will begin again on Friday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. ET with the second and third rounds. The remainder of the draft will occur starting Saturday, April 24 at 10:00 a.m.

 

How about that?  A special Thursday night TV event with JUST the first round, then the 2nd and 3rd rounds on Friday night!  Brilliant!!

 

I think the Thursday night event is a great idea, although I don't know how many people would watch TV on a Friday night.  Well, I'll watch it, but I'm a big football geek.  I don't know how many normal people would watch TV on a Friday night.
