Sunday Morning Timeslots

Apologies in advance if there is something obvious that I am missing here- But do the affiliates have more leeway on Sunday mornings with where they air network programs vs. local news? 

 

With a little channel surfing, Fox News Sunday had Shannon Bream interviewing Israel PM Netanyahu, now an hour later I'm on ABC This Week and Jon Karl introed his interview with the PM as the "first... in over three months". Could be true for a variety of reasons- if This Week airs at the same time as Fox News Sunday in some markets and is pre-empted an hour in mine? Or if ABC taped their interview before Fox? Is ABC assuming that if their viewers are channel surfing, they're not landing on Fox?

 

Or... Am I way overthinking all of this?

There is considerably more leeway for some of the shows. Not a complete free-for-all, but the timing of some of the shows absolutely varies market to market, and that doesn't take into consideration how things are adapted for western time zones when sports coverage is factored in. But as to zeroing in on use of "the first...." - that may be overthinking it a smidge. 😉

Interesting catch. Just this morning my local CBS affiliate skipped Face the Nation (for the first time that I've seen) and aired  E/I programming instead. The did however air Sinclair's Sunday morning political show "Full Measure".

I do believe that CBS usually skips FTN when they have the Super Bowl. Was curious why Sunday Morning didn't have more SB/Football related stories then remembered that football coverage was almost the entire rest of the broadcast day.

What is your local CBS station that is Sinclair-owned?
