NBC Sports Chairman Explains Potential Commercial Changes In NFL Games

Football fans love tuning in every Sunday to watch their favorite NFL team play, but nobody likes breaks in the action.

This happens quite a bit during an NFL broadcast, though, as there seemingly is a commercial break after every play.

NBC Sports chairman Mark Lazarus is aware of this problem, and is looking into making the viewing experience more enjoyable for fans. In a recent interview with Variety magazine, Lazarus outlined a few potential resolutions.

“We are working on formatting that reduces the number of breaks, but maybe are a little bit longer, maybe 30 seconds longer,” Lazerus said.

“We may take out some of the breaks. I think that will enhance the viewing experience. When you have a play, take a break, have a play, take a break, it does not exactly lend to the flow of the game. I applaud them and really, whether it’s us, CBS, FOX, or ESPN, we are all in this together to find the best way to have a good flowing, exciting game.”

Fans surely are hoping these changes actually come to fruition.
