THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL is Coming to CBS - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


February 5, 2014 by  

We may have a few months before CBS’ fall 2014 lineup gets solidified, but one big piece of the puzzle has been placed: CBS has won the rights to air NFL’s Thursday Night Football — which consists of eight early season games — the network announced today.

“We are very pleased to build on our outstanding partnership with the NFL by expanding our coverage to Thursday nights,” said CBS Corporation President and CEO Leslie Moonves in a statement. “CBS is a premium content company and the NFL represents the best premium content there is. I look forward to all this new deal will do for us not only on Thursday nights, but across our entire schedule.”

With CBS using eight Thursdays on the sporting event, no word yet on what impact that will have on its scripted shows currently there. (Perhaps a few will be shuffled, and a few others will be delayed?)
