Additional games

NBC's contract also includes the season-opening Thursday night NFL Kickoff Game and two Saturday games in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. The network will also air two Super Bowl games during the six years of the deal, following the 2008 (Super Bowl XLIII) and 2011 (Super Bowl XLVI) seasons, and two Pro Bowl games the week following their Super Bowl telecasts as part of a new contractual policy in which the network with the Super Bowl will air the Pro Bowl.

In addition, NBC is the current home of the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, which begins the NFL's preseason each August. However, the 2007 game aired on the NFL Network because the league had planned to stage the China Bowl just a few days later, to be televised by NBC as a tie-in to its coverage of the 2008 Summer Olympics in that country.

NBC Sunday Night Football is the beneficiary of the league's new flexible-scheduling system. For the final seven weeks of the season (seven of the final eight weeks during the 2006 season because of Christmas weekend), the NFL has the flexibility in selecting games to air on Sunday night. During the 2006 season, no game was initially scheduled for NBC in the affected weeks—instead, the schedule slot for the NBC game was left blank, with one Sunday afternoon game being moved to the primetime slot (the schedule for the affected weeks simply read 'one of these games will move to 8:15 Eastern'). CBS and FOX could each protect four of its games during Weeks 10-15 and also each protect one of its games for Week 17; however, these two networks had to decide which games to protect in early October 2006, after Week 4 of the NFL season. The television rights to broadcast National Football League (NFL) games are the most lucrative and expensive rights of any sport. ...

In the 2006 season, there was no game played on the first Sunday night which overlapped with the World Series (October 22 in the 2006 season), along with Christmas Eve night; NBC broadcast that week's game (Eagles at Cowboys) on Christmas afternoon instead. However, the broadcast of Football Night in America continued at its regular time on both occasions each Sunday, with a half-hour version of the program airing before the Christmas game and the two "Wild Card Saturday" games.

In 2007, there was no broadcast on NBC for Sunday, October 28 due to game 4 of the 2007 World Series. Also, a tentative full-season schedule was unveiled, including games in the last seven weeks of the season. Those games could be replaced under flexible scheduling if the need arose. Three of the games in the last seven weeks were eventually replaced with more compelling matches. This resulted in the unprecedented situation--twice--of having a team playing consecutive Sunday nights (New England had consecutive Sunday nighters, one of them originally scheduled and the other moved to prime time, as did the Washington Redskins).

The 2008 schedule, released April 15, continued the current practice of a scheduled game possibly being moved in favor of a more compelling one during Weeks 11 through 16 (November 16 through December 21), but leaves the slot open on the final Sunday, December 28.

I was not interested in the quote, unquote vanity of starting anew. . . There's not a lot of room for experimentation.[1]

Also, NBC has the starters introduce themselves, much as ABC did in the last few years of its run, and the short postgame show (so affiliates can get to their late newscasts) follows a similar format to ABC's.


Michaels and Madden ended each telecast in the 2007 NFL season by selecting an MVP for that night's game to receive the Horse Trailer award (with a photo of each recipient being affixed to the side of a production truck, also known as a "horse trailer"). This concept originated on ABC's MNF, although in the 2006 season, it was altered to the Rock Star of the Game, with the player's photo mounted on a rooftop display at NBC's headquarters, the GE Building (aka "30 Rock") in New York. The 2007 season of the National Football League (NFL) is the 88th season played by the major professional American football league in the United States. ...

Theme music

Academy Award winner John Williams composed the instrumental theme music[2] for Sunday Night Football. Singer Pink sang the theme song for the broadcast[3]in 2006, a reworking of the Joan Jett song "I Hate Myself For Loving You" retitled "Waiting All Day For Sunday Night".[4][5] Several alternative versions were used throughout the season, substituting different lyrics when appropriate, e.g. "Waiting All Year For Opening Night." Although he never won an Oscar for any of his movie performances, the comedian Bob Hope received two honorary Oscars for his contributions to cinema. ...

Alecia Beth Moore (pronounced [1]) (born on September 8, 1979), known professionally as Pink (often stylized as ), is a two-time Grammy-winning American singer-songwriter who gained prominence in 2000. ... Joan Jett (born Joan Marie Larkin on September 22, 1958 in Ardmore, Pennsylvania) is an American rock guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer and actress. ...


On the selection of Pink, NFL on NBC producer Fred Gaudelli had this to say:

A football fan knows the anticipation of waiting all day for the big game. When you hear this song on Sunday nights you'll know the big game is about to kick off. ... We chose Pink as the signature voice because she is a tremendous talent with a crossover appeal that makes her relevant to all segments of our audience.[4]

Starting in the 2007 season, country singer Faith Hill has replaced Pink as the singer of the opening theme, which still resembles the Joan Jett song.[6] The 2007 season of the National Football League (NFL) is the 88th season played by the major professional American football league in the United States. ... Audrey Faith Perry McGraw, known professionally as Faith Hill (born September 21, 1967), is an American country singer, known for her commercial success as well as her marriage to fellow country singer Tim McGraw. ...


Show opening

The song is at the centerpiece of the opening montage, which has also changed in 2007. For the first season, Pink appeared to sing from the top of a skyscraper as a helicopter zoomed down on a city skyline and the field, the results of Computer-Generated Imagery.

For other uses, see Times Square (disambiguation). ...


In 2007, Faith Hill sings on a stage while some of the key players in the game and announcers Michaels and Madden arrive in limousines and walk on a red carpet as they head to a simulated theater. Also, some of the lyrics have been changed slightly and the musical arrangement tilts toward country more than rock, to reflect the change in singers. The marquee outside the theater shows the logo of Sprint, which paid a product placement fee, and one of the "bystanders" records the red carpet scene on a Sprint camera phone. Access Hollywood co-hosts Shaun Robinson and Tony Potts also appear in the opening. Audrey Faith Perry McGraw, known professionally as Faith Hill (born September 21, 1967), is an American country singer, known for her commercial success as well as her marriage to fellow country singer Tim McGraw. ...

Graphics

NBC's Sunday Night Football graphics, logos and scoreboard were designed by Troika Design Group, along with the city skyline graphics used in the introductions to both Football Night in America and the game itself.[7] NBC's game telecasts use the same type of bottomline scoreboard that Monday Night Football used in the 2005 NFL season (and was subsequently used by ABC Sports until its demise in August 2006). The bottomline was also used on NBC's own coverage of Notre Dame football and the annual Bayou Classic game, and the package's look and font has also transitioned to other NBC Sports broadcasts such as the network's NHL coverage, Poker After Dark (which airs in the late overnight hours Monday-Saturday), figure skating specials, and video reports on NBCSports.com. All NBC Sports presentations now use the package, with the network's golf coverage using it beginning in early February 2007 with their coverage of the FBR Open, though it has been slightly modified for golf coverage due to readability concerns.
