According to the reports the NFL has yet to pick a streaming service for Thursday Night Football. two years ago it was streamed by Twitter and last year Amazon won the rights. The Thursday contests have grown from a handful of late season events shown on the NFL Network to a full season of games, becoming one of the most popular shows on broadcast television. According to the Sports Business Daily, CBS' were down 4 percent from 2016 and 20 percent from 2015 while NBC's were off 21 percent year-to-year. Even by adding another $660 million or $550 million per season to that total, Fox would still be paying less per season than the $1.9 billion ESPN now pays for Monday Night Football. In securing the Thursday Night Football package, FOX now has 3 of the 5 most-watched shows in all of television (AGOTW; NFL Sunday singleheader; Thursday Night Football). Johnson has called a few NFL games since joining Fox, but he's concentrated mostly on college football.

From a practical standpoint, it means CBS can keep "The Big Bang Theory" in its Thursday home all season rather than airing it on Monday nights for the first month or so of the season. (This excludes the Thanksgiving night game, which will still air on NBC).

CBS paid $37.5 million per game for eight games during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

Fox and the National Football League announced Wednesday they have agreed to a five-year deal for Thursday games.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said: "We felt this was the best opportunity for the NFL to continue to grow the Thursday-night package".

While it's still early in the process, Ourand also said Fox's top broadcast duo, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, were likely not going to do Thursday Night Football.

Regardless the ramifications for Fox's live sports content budget and Thursday night ratings, the network seems exceedingly pleased to be in deeper with the NFL.

Wednesday's deal reaffirms Fox's mission to become a leader in sports after it closes its deal with Walt Disney. The problem was whether it would come across on film. "Hard to recover in four days".
