A schedule made up of a peculiar NFL weekend; CBS loses 4% of its doubleheader inventory

  • CBS the doubleheader and Fox the singleton this weekend.
  • Al Michaels won’t be on any of the championship game. Didn’t expect so!
  • Two of the most improved announcers voices are CBS’ Spero Dedes and Andrew Catalon
  • Chris Lewis, a Syracuse University alum, is doing another CBS NFL Game. A decent fellow.
