NBC primetime football returns Sept. 8
Underwood will effectively replace Faith Hill, who announced her departure from the primetime NFL broadcast last month.
Underwood should see plenty of airtime on NBC this fall. The country/pop star will also topline a live broadcast of “The Sound of Music” for NBC over the holidays.
“Sunday Night Football,” which averaged a primetime-best 21.4 million viewers in 2012, returns Sept. 8.
