    Some 4:15 Games to Now Start at 4:25

    NFL shifts CBS & FOX late doubleheader kickoff times to ensure more football for fans

    4:25 PM ET Kickoff Time Reduces Overlap With 1:00 PM Games

    The kickoff time for Sunday late afternoon doubleheader games on CBS and FOX will be moved from 4:15 PM ET to 4:25 PM ET, the NFL announced today. The 4:05 PM ET kickoff time for games not on the doubleheader network will remain unchanged.

    The 4:25 PM ET kickoff time will reduce instances in which fans miss the end of a 1:00 PM ET game telecast because they must receive the opening kickoff of their home team’s late-afternoon game. In addition, fans not in the cities of the late doubleheader opponents will be less likely to miss the beginning of the late doubleheader game.

    In researching the kickoff time shift, the NFL analyzed games from the 2009-11 seasons and found that 44 games required part of the audience to be switched to a mandatory doubleheader game kickoff. With a 4:25 PM ET kickoff time, that number that would have been reduced by 66 percent to only 15 games.

    Approximately 40 games over the full 2012 season will be impacted by the 10-minute kickoff time shift – with half of those moves coming in games played in Mountain or Pacific time zones with 1:25 PM or 2:25 PM local starts.

    It's only a difference of 10 minutes, which will increase fans overall enjoyment of their football season. I like this move.

    I have heard that they did it for betting. Apparently, when games overlapped, the betting dropped like a rock and ratings did as well. With the extra time, degenerate gamblers a better opportunity to place more bets after seeing the results of the 1st batch of games.

    That's true.

    They could keep showing us the same Mike Wallace re-runs from the '70s and we'd never know the difference.

    Come to think of it....

    One must first possess a sense of humor to get a joke.

    And agreed. Good move that was long overdue.

    The best part of this is later starts means there is less to watch of the terrible pregame show on NBC.

    AFAIK this affects two Jets games this year...

    Sunday Sept. 16 at Pittsburgh 4:15pm (CBS)

    Sunday Oct. 21 at New England 4:15pm (CBS)

    If I am correct those will both now be 4:25 starts.

    I don't think a matter of "10 minutes" will matter in regards to overall drunkenness. It's either you're drunk or you're not. It's as simple as that. A whopping 10 minutes won't change that.

    I don't usually respond to your daily criticisms but 60 Minutes has always been and still is the best news show on television. There's a good reason for its longevity.I record it every week. Because it never starts on time in the fall, I have to set the DVR to record whatever the official 8pm CBS show is as well. Long live 60 Minutes. Carry on.
