I don't think it's as marginal as you think. Someone that watches for an hour counts as 0.33 viewers on a 3 hour telecast and 0.43 viewers on a 2:20 telecast (which Fox was last night). That might not seem like much, but it's a 30% increase. Huge in context.
On the numbers assembled, that does make some sense.
Admittedly, I wasn't aware the broadcast only went for 2 hrs and 20 min. With game time reduced by some 16 minutes, why would the broadcast time drop by a whopping 40 min? noting there have been pre- and post-game shows for a while now.
Ultimately, it helps, I agree, but with only a 16 min reduction in playing time, I can't agree that that would translate to a 30% increase in ratings.

No, i'm not saying it would. The 30% was only in reference to someone that watched an hour. But I reckon it would be 10-20%.

Fox's telecast last night was 2:40, The Essendon-Freo game today is 2:50, Adelaide-Sydney is 2:20. So some games will be more affected than others.

one of the benefits of being one of the only leagues still playing. Likewise, the A-league and NRL.
Who's watching at 2am other than alcoholics and the unemployable?
It seems that a few at least noticed -
