    Does anyone think that CBS gets shut down as a result of this?

    World Cup Broadcasting Thread

    KVRR, the Fox station in Fargo preempted Morocco-Iran for 2 Broke Girls. Fox's Wyoming stations are preempting Portugal-Spain for The People's Court. At least KVRR put Morocco-Iran on their .2, can't say where Portugal-Spain went to in Wyoming,

    NFL 2017-18 Season Coverage

    Fox will simulcast NFL Network's coverage of the upcoming NFL Draft. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/02/14/draft-will-be-televised-by-fox/ First 3 rounds will be simulcast, with NFL Network and Fox talent involved. Saturday is strictly on NFL Network due to NASCAR commitments for Fox. All this per the New York Times.

    NFL 2017-18 Season Coverage

    The Twin Cities did not get the first 30 minutes and doing a quick check, NYC and Chicago did not either.

    NFL 2017-18 Season Coverage

    There simply isn't a game that meets the NFL's(and NBC's) requirements. That is, a game that affects both teams and both teams only. Had Tennessee rallied to beat the Rams, or had Carolina not scored on 4th and goal, there likely would have been a game that would have been flexed. And there's this tidbit: NBC can pass on airing SNF in Week 17. They would only pass on SNF if there wasn't a game available, though.

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    There was a player who had a heart attack during a game in 1971. If the NFL survived that, they can survive another. Also, FOX cannot and will not make a play for the AFC rights unless CBS decided to walk away. So we can put that rumor to the deathbed where it belongs.
