I used to watch This Week in Pro Football on Saturday nights in the New York area, at either 6:00pm or 7:00pm. It was great. You got to see highlights of last weeks games to prepare for watching the games that would be played the next day. (With 'Blackout' rules, who knew what game would be on.) It is still my benchmark as to what a highlight show should be. One of the other comments refers to the laid back nature of hosts Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier. Let me just say that to me that is a positive asset. I don't need announcers like Chris Berman making up snappy names while shouting a mile a minute over the action. The action itself is sufficient. They covered every game and the focus was on the great plays, not on goofy commentary or camera tricks. With the voice of the great John Facenda, it was what a NFL highlight show should be.
