ESPN Sunday Night Football

Show Summary

For 19 years ESPN was the home of prime-time weekend football. The original Sunday Night Football featured Mike Patrick and Roy Firestone on the call and was home to many of the most famous NFL games ever from 1987 to 2006. The first season featured a second color commentator who was changed up for each game.

Joe Theismann took over as the sole color commentator for Season 2. A sideline reporter (Mark Malone) was added for the 1994 season and Paul Maguire joined the booth for the 1998 season.

Also beginning in 1998 (Season 12), ESPN took over as the sole broadcaster of Sunday Night Football. For the first 11 seasons, they shared the rights with TNT, who televised games for Weeks 1-9 while ESPN televised Weeks 10-17. In 1998, the start time for the games was changed from 8:00 PM ET to 8:20 PM ET, allowing for a 75-minute NFL Prime Time highlight program hosted by Chris Berman and Tom Jackson.

For the 2006 season, NBC won the rights for Sunday Night Football while ESPN took over Monday Night Football from parent company ABC.
