With Thanksgiving a day away, it's time to celebrate the relationship between football and your TV.
You sit in front of it for hours every Sunday and a few more on Thursdays and Mondays. It heats up and gets overworked, but it keeps on ticking because the TV is loyal and it knows how much you need it on Sundays.
But the bond between TV and football goes deeper than just Sundays. Every year as new TV shows get thrown into your weekly schedule, networks pitch them to you like analysts sell their predictions in August. Which shows have the best chemistry, the best framework, the best execution or the true "dominant element."
And just like with NFL teams, sometimes those shows pan out, and sometimes they crash and burn.
So in the spirit of celebrating connections, it's time to see how some of TV's new shows pair up with their NFL counterparts.
