Maybe someone simply dropped the ball in making the reservation. Who knows.
But if they really want ratings and fan base activity, they really should make at least the 1st round on a weekend, so people can throw parties and tune in.
Sat - 1st round (Radio city hall)
Sun - 2nd/3rd round (in a chosen NFL Stadium) ie, reg SUN games
Mon - 4th - 7th (in a chosen NFL Stadium) ie, MNF
