VIDEO: MLS on NBC promo debuts on Sunday Night Football

* * *

UPDATE 2:42 p.m. — Upon a couple viewings, I believe there is also a glimpse of Fredy Montero ripping off his Electricity yellow jersey after scoring in Portland. No crowd shots though.

I don’t know much about TV ratings or how they work, but this story says last night’s Sunday Night Football broadcast delivered a 7.1 overnight rating (meaning millions of people watched). During said broadcast, NBC unveiled this MLS promo.

If you remember, the two sides agreed to a three-year media rights deal starting in 2012 and it appears to be paying off already.

Also nice to hear the voice of Sounders FC play-by-play man Arlo White included in the spot at the end…
