Storyline

"Are you ready for some football?!" That six-word lyric, as bellowed out each week by country music superstar Hank Williams Jr., preluded each "NFL Monday Night Football" game, the first successful attempt to air a National Football League (NFL) football game in prime-time. Each week, two teams (as chosen months in advance by the NFL) met in what has become a Monday night tradition. Usually, a trio of sports-casters (a play-by-play announcer joined by a color commentator and an analyst) called the action. Half-time interviews with coaches and players, and sideline reports after outstanding plays were also innovations that contributed to the appeal of these games. Many of the games proved to be exciting, though sometimes the games were boring (especially if the teams were a mismatch or not very good, a necessary risk since the games were scheduled months in advance).

Trivia

The addition featuring comic Dennis Miller as a color commentator in 2001 was met with controversy as many of Miller's jokes and comments went over the heads of viewers. ABC ultimately ended up setting up a web page dedicated to explaining Miller's many obscure (and not-so-obscure) pop culture references. See more »

Being a big Dennis Miller fan I was sad to see him get cut, but I understand the move I guess more people didn't like him than love his views, I myself found Dan Fouts more annoying. I like the move adding Madden with Al Michaels, I would like to see Lynn Swann back on the sidelines also, good riddance Melissa Stark.
