Disney, NFL join forces to expand coverage of '19 NFL Draft
NFL (official press release)
For the first time in its history, ABC will broadcast all three days of the 2019 NFL Draft -- including two nights of primetime coverage -- as part of The Walt Disney Company's unprecedented commitment to one of the National Football League's marquee offseason events. ABC will be the exclusive broadcast home of the event and will produce its own distinct telecast for the ABC audience, separate from ESPN and NFL Network, during the first two nights of coverage. For the second straight year, ABC will simulcast ESPN's presentation on Day 3.

The prime-time draft specials on ABC will be anchored by ESPN's College GameDay, college football's longest-running pregame show. ESPN and ABC personalities and other special guests will be part of the multi-night ABC presentation. The telecasts on ESPN and NFL Network will continue to offer the expert NFL analysis that passionate NFL fans have come to rely on every year.

I can't tell you how little I give a shit about drug addled overpaid closet queens and their careers.

I will now do my best to erase the whole ugly mess from my mind.

I like pro and college versions of this sport and I can not care less about any of this.

Hey it's Disney.

They could have all the number one draft picks do a great big production number.

I suggest Zip-a-dee-doo-dah. :BigGrin3:

I don't know why so many people like to watch this either, but I'm guessing they are the same people who like "reality TV".

For the network and the NFL, if the ratings justify it, it seems like a no-brainer. The draft is going to happen anyway and if there's an audience out there who wants to watch it then the marginal cost of making a TV product out of it is probably minimal, compared to other sorts of content they could be producing.
