The End of an Era: NFL Network's Total Access Signs Off After Over 20 Years 

Total Access, NFL Network's signature weeknight studio show since inception, has been shut down. 

The final episode aired recently, marking the end of an over 20-year run for the show. 

Its cancellation was inevitable as the nightly studio show format lost relevance in the changing media landscape. 

The show struggled to maintain its identity and quality after the departure of host Rich Eisen. 

The move comes amid cost-cutting measures and the league's efforts to potentially sell NFL Network. 

NFL Network never lived up to expectations as a valuable media property for the league.
