NBC Sports Launches “Scary Good Sunday Night” Parties: An Enhanced Sunday Night Football Viewing Experience

“Scary Good Sunday Night” Events — Beginning this Week in Boston and Miami — Offer Fans an Outlet To Cure The Sunday Scaries, With Sunday Night Football on NBC and Peacock

Stamford, Conn., September 13, 2023 – NBC Sports this week launches a series of Sunday Night Football viewing parties across the country that will help fans ease the new-week nerves as they watch the NFL’s best in primetime each Sunday. The Sunday Scaries are described as feelings of anxiety that occur every Sunday before the start of a new work week. A recent survey conducted by LinkedIn revealed that 80 percent of professionals experience the Sunday Scaries with the peak between 8-9.

The can’t-miss viewing parties in major markets across the country will provide the exhilaration and comradery of SNF in addition to partnerships with Taskrabbit, and Breethe to help fans celebrate the end of the weekend in a one-of-a-kind environment.

At each event, attendees will have the chance to blitz their worries by taking down an NFL tackling dummy for a chance to win exclusive prizes that enhance their Sundays, including exclusive savings on TV-mounting and other home services courtesy of Taskrabbit, complimentary three-month memberships from meditation and mental wellness app, Breethe, and three-months of free Peacock Premium.

“We are excited to create an environment that not only enhances the communal Sunday Night Football experience but provides enthusiasm and self-care for fans as they start a new week,” said Lyndsay Signor, NBC Sports senior vice president of Consumer Engagement. “We know SNF can be a cure for the Sunday Scaries.”

Participants will be able to enjoy Scary Good Sunday Nights giveaways, photo ops, special guest appearances, a sweepstakes, self-care experiences from On Her Turf and great food at some of the best bars in the country. To learn more, go to
