America was outraged that NBC showed NASCAR instead of football

Monday November 23rd, 2015

Every Sunday night, NBC airs an 80-minute Sunday Night Football pre-game show called Football Night in America from 7-8:20 p.m. ET.

This Sunday, however, that was not the case. NASCAR’s final race of the season cut in to the beginning of the show, thanks to weather delay pushing back the start.

This left America up in arms. They love their football highlights, and analyst Rodney Harrison’s insight.
