    The ad campaign Kimmel did telling you to be cool and watch the college football playoffs? Ratings are down 36% from last year. More than 10 million less people did not watch.

    Now I realize everyone will say New Years eve but Kimmel's ad campaign and the entire strategy was to have people party and watch their tv's in mass.


    When are the studio executives going to realize Kimmel sucks? The guy gets paid to fail, miserably.

    Idiot NCAA is refusing to admit that NYE was a bad idea. Bill Hancock is full of shit. The problem is the refusal to move the Rose and Sugar bowls from New Years Day. The NCAA couldn't even do a playoff right because it can't piss off the traditional bowl games. So we had playoffs on NYE and the next day had the meaningless bowl games played. The only time the playoffs will be done properly is when they're in bowl games like the Rose and Sugar that get played on NYD. What a cluster fuck.

    The powers behind the College Football Playoff remain committed to playing on New Year’s Eve — and to the belief that it will eventually be a TV ratings success.

    Combined overnight ratings for the New Year’s Six bowls, which included the Orange and Cotton bowls which served as Playoff semifinals, were down 13% from a year ago, from an average 8.2 rating to 7.1. But Bill Hancock, the CFP’s executive director, called the decline “modest,” adding: “It’s not that much of a surprise.”

    The decline for the two Playoff semifinals was more dramatic. A year ago, the first Playoff semifinals set cable TV ratings records on New Year’s Day in the Rose (15.5 rating) and Sugar (15.3) bowls. By contrast, Thursday’s New Year’s Eve semifinals in the Orange and Cotton bowls drew 9.7 and 9.9 ratings, respectively.

    I think the Bowls have nothing to do with the NCAA. The Rose and Orange Bowl scammers will never give up New Years day.

    The whole Bowl system is a joke to fill-up empty blocks of sports cable time. If football players at Missouri can walk out to get the President fired they can walk out to get paid.

    Between commercials, penalty's , football alone on that makes it a tuff watch. If I'm not betting I'm not watching.

    Hancock should run for office. His spin was textbook politician. Typical NCAA refusing to acknowledge reality. Look at how long it took to even get to a playoff. Bowl games = money. That's where the priority has been. They weren't interested in a playoff because they didn't want to disturb the bowl system's money. It's so much about money that students aren't even going to games anymore. Too many shitty match-ups in today's expanded conferences and too high of a price for tickets.

    http://time.com/money/3208397/college-football-student-tickets-fans/

    As ticket prices have soared, and the quality of the product has declined, it has become more of a no-brainer for fans—poor students in particular—to stay home and watch the game on the couch. After all, this option has gotten cheaper and more entertaining and convenient in recent years, thanks to the declining prices of big-screen TVs and the advent of DVRs, multi-angle replays, and other innovations. Sure, the exciting roar of the crowd may not be there if you watch the game at home, or the frat house, or heck, in the parking lot while tailgating outside the stadium. But the way trends are going in terms of shrinking attendance at games, the crowd might

    What makes this particularly egregious is that last years games were the highest rated program ever on basic cable

    But he's accepted in Hollywood. He's in the club. He is one of the head guys of the club, in fact. His TV show matters little.

    He's again back in 3rd place in both total viewers and even 18-49 male demo. I don't get how Kimmel is so accepted in Hollywood he gets $10 million a year.

    What makes this infuriating is Kimmel is a source of what everyone here complains about with the stern show. Howard didn't really start to evolve until he started going to those celebrity parties at Kimmel'shouse.

    I would've liked to watch the OU game, but I was working at the time, as I imagine a lot of folks were (at least out West)...

    The problem has already been fixed they are renaming college playoffs system the @LawyerLarry system that alone will break all rating records . The games will not be played on Larryseve next year. the semi final games will be renamed the @tradioguy69 bowl and the @MrPPV bowl. the championship game will be now known as @ClintDagger bowl. @ShutUpSitDown fixed the whole rankings system in a matter of seconds which will also improve things. @EDDIEVRULZ will now be in charge of marketing . Larry inc. growing in the new year.

    Putting the playoff games on NYE was dumb. NYE is not a holiday most people have off from work. For non east coasters the Clemson/OU game was on while most people were still at work.

    First off, we must acknowledge reality - the drop off in viewership that resulted from hosting the semifinal playoff games on NYE was real and unmistakable. The ratings numbers make that clear and to try to spin or downplay them makes one sound disingenuous. But solely for the sake of argument, I'll throw the question out there - does this necessarily mean that the underlying premise is flawed? After all, this was the first time that purposely moving games of this significance to NYE was ever attempted. Prior to this, NYE had largely been the domain of consolation bowls that only rarely produced compelling match-ups between traditionally top ranked programs. The better games have always on New Years Day or later. As such, college football fans, heretofore, haven't been compelled to make NYE college football watching a priority. But can we say with any degree of certainty, just because the experiment didn't work the first time, that this is a guarantee that it could never work? Isn't it possible that with time, NYE could become just as big of a college football night as New Years itself?

    Consider the following:

    - NYE is already an evening where friends make plans to get together.

    - Increasingly, these get togethers are being hosted at homes and apartments, as more and more people acknowledge the reality that NYE out on the town is strictly for amateurs.

    - A television is almost always on at these parties, despite the fact that current NYE programming features the greatest assemblage of no talent hacks that you'll likely see on one evening all year long. What were the networks offering up this year? Queefy Griffin and Manderson Cooper? Ryan Semenquest? Something called Pitdog? Wasn't even Carson Dully being propped up on one of the stations? I'm sorry, but that's just brutal.

    Is it really that far outside the realm of possibility to consider that college football might be able to co-opt television viewing for the earlier part of this evening? Let's not forget that the playoff system itself is only two years old at this point. And it's likely to be expanded in the not too distant future. Going from four to eight teams in the playoff would leave a couple of additional top ranked match-ups for the New Years Day bowls.

    The most glaring potential impediment to success I see for the NYE playoff game format moving forward is a simple consequence of the fact that NYE is still a working day (or half day) for most people. But having one game kick off around 4pm and the other around 8pm would seem a pretty fair compromise. Is it possible the power of football could further impact our traditional work schedule? :dontknow:
    Again, not necessarily advocating for anything, just thinking out loud.
