ABC to simulcast 10 "Monday Night Football" games to combat strikes, attract viewers, and bolster schedule amidst entertainment industry turmoil.
ABC has announced that it will add 10 "Monday Night Football" games to its schedule this season, in an effort to combat the ongoing writers and actors strikes. The network will simulcast these games, which were previously exclusive to ESPN. This move comes as ABC faces a shortage of original programming due to the strikes. By airing the popular sports program, ABC hopes to attract viewers and bolster its schedule. This shift marks the return of "Monday Night Football" to ABC and reflects a growing trend by legacy networks to turn to live sports amidst the current disruptions in the entertainment industry.
