The NFL Wildcard Playoffs are near the end of the week with three games on Saturday and three on Sunday. The New Orleans Saints will have the Chicago Bears home on Sunday, January 10th at 3:40 p.m. CST. The game will air on CBS, Amazon Prime and Nickelodeon. Indeed, you read that right, Nickelodeon will be communicating the game as the third major organization. Numerous fans, including external New Orleans and Chicago, thought this was a strange appearance for the organization.
Nickelodeon is trying something new
For the past few years, Amazon Prime and the NFL have worked together to show games on Thursday nights. While it’s not ridiculous to imagine that another organization could join the positions, Nickelodeon was not a speculated accomplice dependent on its intended interest group. I think the organization is looking for a speed difference between Paw Patrol and Peppa the Pig.
Perhaps a major concern of the organization is the profanity that occurs at NFL games. The players are miced and things are generally said between games, and I don’t mean nice amusement. From time to time players get put on a hot mic near cameras and we commit to CBS, FOX, and ESPN, but Nickelodeon doesn’t have this problem with typical programming. You need to consider whether this has been checked prior to an agreement.
CBS and Nickelodeon tried Nickified during the Eagles Packers game on December 6th and everything went well. With that in mind, it shows that they want to continue their relationship and expand the NFL to their more youthful crowd during the scores with Spongebob and Patrick visuals. The schedule includes a pre-game show, “The SpongeBob SportsPants Countdown Special,” hosted by Denver Broncos LB Von Miller and followed by the real game at 3:40 pm CST.
It’s uncommon for the Nickelodeon Plan website to list Saturday as the game schedule, but I accept that this is just a continuity mistake and things will be changed. This would be the point the Seattle Seahawks have the LA Rams in one of the other NFC wildcard games. The game is called up by Noah Eagle, the child of BCS NFL television channel Ian Eagle. Nickelodeon’s Gabrielle Nevaeh and former NFL collector Nate Burleson will be investigating. Scratch’s Lex Lumpkin will be the secondary correspondent overseeing things.
Expect green mud, busy CGI fun, and clean, healthy fun. How about we just trust that CJ Gardner-Johnson is not appropriate for the child’s best interests?
