Football Night in America

Show Summary

Football Night in America began in the 2006 season in conjunction with NBC winning the rights to Sunday Night Football away from ESPN. Each Sunday at 7 pm ET, the team presents highlights and analysis of Sunday action and sets the stage for the Sunday night game, which starts around 8:20 ET. They also discuss what is going on in the world of the NFL. The show also includes interviews with players and coaches involved in the Sunday Night game and an in-depth report on one of the key afternoon games.

The show is followed by Sunday Night Football and, during halftime, a brief analysis of the first half, abbreviated highlights of the earlier games and an essay by Bob Costas are presented. There is a post-game segment which includes player interviews, game analysis, an NFL injury update and closing thoughts and a preview of the next Sunday Night game from the broadcast booth.
