Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison to provide in-depth preview of upcoming week's biggest games

NBCSN will launch a new, weekly half-hour NFL studio show- "FNIA Coach's Clicker" - on Wednesday, Sept. 11, which dovetails off "Football Night in America," the most-watched pre-game show in sports. "FNIA Coach's Clicker" will debut each week at 6:30 p.m. on NBCSN with Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison providing an in-depth Xs-and-Os preview of the upcoming week's biggest games, including the "Sunday Night Football" contest. Liam McHugh will host the new program from the famous Studio 8H at NBCUniversal's 30 Rockefeller Plaza headquarters in New York City.

Derived from the weekly coach's clicker segment on "Football Night in America," "FNIA Coach's Clicker" will look ahead to the upcoming week by providing in-depth breakdowns of teams, one-on-one matchups and schemes that will factor into the outcome of biggest games. Dungy and Harrison will take viewers inside the film room to take apart offenses, defenses and special teams by utilizing highlights, graphics and Dungy's clicker. NFL insiders Mike Florio and Scott Pioli will appear weekly to provide viewers with relevant news and notes about the upcoming week's slate of games.

The premiere episode of "FNIA Coach's Clicker" will focus on the week two "Sunday Night Football" contest between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, as well as other games. While the program debuts each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., its first encore will occur later that same night at midnight. That airing will follow the weekly debut of Emmy Award-nominated "NFL Turning Point," NBCSN's weekly show co-produced by NFL Films, which reviews the most-critical moments of the previous week's biggest games.

The coach's clicker segment on "Football Night in America" and now "FNIA Coach's Clicker" utilize an actual clicker that is identical to the one Dungy used to communicate Xs-and-Os strategy with his teams during his 13-year head coaching career.

Following are weekly air times, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 11:


6:30 p.m. ET
