  1. I found it a bit surprising that Fox would run a special report of this magnitude as a selfie level 2.
  2. My thinking is NBC and ABC will stay on until 5pm Eastern
  3. It's the end of an era as Britan's longest-reigning monarch has dies at 96 years old. coverage on US networks is as follows: NBC: Lester Holt is anchoring a special report. It is not being simulcast on MSNBC or any other NBCU owned cable network. Fox: simulcast of FNC rolling coverage anchored by Sandra Smith and John Roberts. this is being picked up on most if not all Fox affiliates even though it's technically level 2. ABC: special report anchored by David Muir. CBS: special report anchored by Norah O'Donnell. the cable news channels are in rolling coverage. I don't know if it's being picked up by their co-owned entertainment channels.
  4. The difference is that UPN and The WB had name-brand shows like Star Trek : Voyager, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Dawson's Creek
  5. what programming strategy will Nexstar pursue for the CW? news? unscripted shows? something else?
  6. With The next round of hearings scheduled for September, it's going to be interesting to see if the networks will preempt the new fall shows if any of these hearings are in primetime.
  7. Fox has not any decision on coverage on either broadcast or cable. Assume the broadcast side will stick with it's regular schedule (MasterChef, Welcome to Flatch, and Call Me Kat) with Brett and Martha being picked up by any affiliate that wants it. FNC didn't carry the first hearing and likely won't carry this one.
  8. the 8th (and likely final) hearing has been scheduled for next Thursday in primetime. looking ahead to the network schedules for that evening, everything on the 4 major networks is reruns with the exception of ABC's game shows, so they should be in the clear to broadcast this hearing.
  9. They need to understand that the local stations didn't have a say in this (NBC and Fox stations may have due to the way special reports are formatted on those networks).
  10. UPDATE: Hearing #7 is set for 1pm Eastern today (it was originally scheduled for 10am Eastern). all 3 networks will cover it live (NBC's coverage is optional for stations airing syndicated shows or Days of Our Lives). There had been a primetime hearing scheduled for Thursday but that has been rescheduled for a later date, it currently isn't known if that hearing will still be in primetime on the new date.
  11. Another hearing has been abruptly scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at 1pm Eastern. Assume it will be aired on the 3 major broadcast networks.
  12. That is the last time I remember ABC using the Bulletin designation for breaking news. Is that still in active use?
  13. Technically, the networks don't have must-carry requirements for special reports when they occur during non-network time.
  14. I imagine many of the O&Os are running the hearings as are more news-heavy Fox affiliates.
  15. The next hearing is on Tuesday. CBS has already committed to airing it
  16. Assuming this hearing is rescheduled, will it be for Friday or next Tuesday? I would think this committee doesn't want to meet over a holiday weekend.
  17. Assuming this hearing is rescheduled, will it be for Friday or next Tuesday? I would think this committee doesn't want to meet over a holiday weekend
  18. When will NBC make a final call on preempting Thursday's first round of the US Open for the hearing? What will be the deciding factor?
  19. I would bet the more news-focused Fox affiliates will. The ones with no or outsourced news operations will probably stick to their regular schedules.

  21. the scheduling of next Thursday's hearing has created a possible conflict with NBC Sports coverage of the first round of the US Open golf tournament. that hearing has been scheduled for 1pm Eastern time with Golf scheduled for 2pm Eastern. Assuming NBC carries this hearing, do they leave early for Golf if it goes past 2:00 which it likely will do or does round 1 air exclusively on USA?
  22. The next hearing is scheduled for June 13th at 10am Eastern. It is not known if any of the broadcast networks will carry it or any subsequent hearings.
  23. I wonder what the networks will do if the hearings go past 11pm Eastern
  24. the 1/6 insurrection committee hearings begin this week with a primetime hearing on Thursday. Here are the broadcast and cable network plans. Note: this page will be updated as necessary. CBS: Norah O'Donnell will front live coverage. CBS's coverage will be streamed on Paramount Plus and CBSN ABC: live coverage will be hosted by David Muir. NBC: Lester Holt will host on both the broadcast net and NBC News Now Fox: Live coverage anchored by Brett Bair and Martha McCallum will be offered as a level 2 special report to Fox affiliates who want it (it is important to note that primetime on the network will not be preempted). CNN and MSNBC will likely use their normal primetime hosts for coverage. FNC will not be airing the hearings in full but will dip in as events warrant. the aforementioned broadcast will Brett and Martha will be on Fox Buisness network. Note: NBC has announced that the second hearing which is scheduled for June 13th will be exclusively on NBC News Now. whether or not that will be offered as an optional SR to broadcast affiliates is not known
