ABC Calls Up More ‘Monday Night Football’ Simulcasts For Strike-Hit Fall Schedule

ABC is loading up on a slew of extra NFL games in a bid to bolster its fall schedule.

The broadcast network is hoping that games such as the Seahawks at the NY Giants or the 49ers at the Vikings can help shore up viewing figures.
