    there simply aren't enough high-profile trials going on to make a 24/7 court channel viable, this is why the original court tv was rebranded

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    network affiliates lose a lot of ad revenue when they carry long-form news coverage and most program directors likely don't feel like dealing with phone calls from irate viewers about missing their shows. If you are talking about FOX specifically, a good number of their affiliates don't have full news operations so there isn't anyone who can go to the GM to get permission to put an SR on the air. Additionally, FOX doesn't view turning on the splicer and overriding affiliates outside of network time as something worth doing unless it's a major national disaster, plus, a majority of their stations would prefer to cover major breaking news locally whenever possible.

    FOX will carry the houston funeral service and burial in college station as level 2 SR. Shep will anchor the houston service with Harris Faulkner anchoring the college station burial ceremony

    NBC's coverage is optional to stations ABC and CBS are now on, FOX will probably start level 2 coverage shortly, NBC has been on since 9am

    That is good news for days of our lives fans because nbc will probably be off at 1pm eastern allowing the soap to air on the east coast

    WTTG (and i presume many other affiliates) have bailed on network for their 5pm news

    i don't know how if FOX makes affiliate coverage available to stations during breaking news, however, my educated guess is that affiliate feeds can be used to fill time until the network is ready to go into special report mode

    FOX now simulcasting FNC on most stations, unsure of level status

    because Days tapes way in advance, they aren't easily able to just push an episode back like the other soaps

    that is really going to throw the daytime soaps off schedule for months

    also, FOX was airing the pac 12 football championship last night, they would have had a mess on their hands had HW's death been confirmed during the game.

    How many fox affiliates took last night's SR, most eastern/central stations were in local news when bush's death was announced and i imagine it was a real pain to have to go back on the splicer just minutes after going to local news
