    Speaking of tickers, the NFL on Fox ticker is barren on the right side. It had the Fox network logo during preseason. Nothing now.

    Yeah, that part of the ticker has always been that way, even during the last version of it. Very seldom did you see anything there.

    Is this desk new for the NFL season? They seem to be using it specifically for NFL coverage tonight.

    What about the team produced shows?

    Here's Raven's Unscripted, produced by the team

    And the Ravens Wrap Up done by WBAL needs to figure out a better way for tweets.

    (That was Pete Gilberts reaction to the tweet.)

    It feels like the Ravens consulted with The Weather Channel when they decided upon how much screen real estate to eat up with graphics.

    Despite the amount of screen real estate taken up, I still like the overall look of the graphics.

    The only thing I'd change was switch the location of the ticker of tweets with the #RavensFlock and tag board logo. If I didn't have overscan disabled some of the twicker would be cut off.

    Also, WBAL center cuts the program in SD.

    With the changes to FOX's graphics, the Scoring Bug for ALL NFL telecasts are now at the BOTTOM of the screen.

    Everybody seems to be in "follow the leader" mode. As for who's the leader? I guess it's NBC since everyone decided to mimic their general style.

    NBC will just become a follower, though, if they opt to flatten everything out with the next graphics package, which, if following the pattern, would come January 1st of this upcoming year.

    NBC will have a new graphics package by the Super Bowl.

    TNF starts with NBC this year, it seems.

    As much as they push Thursday Night Football, perhaps the "TNF First Look" show they added to NFLN is a bit excessive?

    I was surprised to find out that it's an NBC-produced show tonight. I can understand not having TNF be on the network because they want to wait for Big Brother to be over (which is why CBS's first TNF game on the network is in week 4). Apparently pushing Big Brother to a Tuesday/Wednesday schedule was hurting their ratings these past 3 years.

    I don't understand why they just didn't keep it exclusive to NFL Network but have CBS production. It's strange to have one, maybe two, weeks of NBC production, and then hand it off to CBS.

    I also noticed that, unlike last time, there were very few on-air references to NBC beyond the SNF promotion and the down arrow still being a peacock feather. The TNF logos, bugs, and the scoreboard just had NFL Network logos on them, without co-branding.

    NBC also promoted the Texans-Bengals TNF during the Giants-Cowboys SNF, so that was probably gonna be a hint that NBC was producing this broadcast.
