NFL GameDay (NFL Network show)

NFL GameDay is a show featuring highlights of National Football League games. It airs on the NFL Network, starting at either 11:30 p.m. Eastern time or the moment that NBC Sunday Night Football concludes, whichever is later. (When NBC does not show a game, this program begins at 8 p.m. ET. It happened twice in 2006, on October 22 and December 24.)

Rich Eisen was the initial anchor, and former NFL defensive back Deion Sanders and head coach Steve Mariucci were the analysts when NFL GameDay debuted on September 10, 2006.[1]

NFL Network claims that this is the only long-form highlight show about the league in the late-night slot on Sunday, although Chris Berman and Tom Jackson host extended packages called "The Blitz" as part of SportsCenter.

On October 1, 2006, Week 4 of the season, Eisen missed the program. No reason was given for his absence, but Fran Charles filled in as host of the show, just as he sometimes does on NFL Total Access. The following week, October 8, Eisen returned.

Starting in November 2007, NFL GameDay would be shown in Ireland on the over-the-air broadcast network TV3, in a late-night slot on Thursdays. It will also be shown on Sky Sports in the Uk from the beginning of the 2008 Season.

Effective Fall 2010: Rich Eisen is no longer hosting NFL GameDay Final as he is now hosting NFL GameDay Morning. Fran Charles is now the new host, joined by Steve Mariucci, Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin as analysts.

Effective Fall 2012: Chris Rose replaces Fran Charles as host on NFL GameDay Final. He is joined by analysts Deion Sanders, Michael Irvin and Marshall Faulk.
