‘SB Nation Reacts’ survey reveals limited interest

NFL fans don’t appear to be excited about the upcoming offseason version of ‘Hard Knocks’ that will feature the New York Giants.

According to a national ‘SB Nation Reacts’ survey, only 26% of respondents plan to watch the HBO series next month.

You might think that is because of lack of interest in the Giants, a team that went 6-11 last season and has won one playoff game since 2012. Really, though, it might be ‘Hard Knocks’ fatigue.

The ‘Reacts’ survey found that a majority of respondents believe there are too many versions of the HBO series.

The five-part series debuts Tuesday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO with new episodes debuting subsequent Tuesdays through July 30.

This is the Giants’ 100th season of NFL competition, and the first time they have been on any version of ‘Hard Knocks’.

“As we enter our 100th season, we look forward to providing our fans with the opportunity to see what it takes to build an NFL roster,” said Nilay Shah, Giants Senior Vice President, Marketing and Brand Strategy, in a statement released by the team. “Beginning the moment the previous season ended, we gave NFL Films unprecedented access to this critical time of the year. We know viewers will gain insight from moments that have never been captured before and are excited for them to learn more about our Giants history.”
