    I don't even know if you can get a season pass and I don't know a better place to point this out, although this could affect some other shows.

    According to my Roamio, NBC airs one hour of convention coverage every night at 10, Monday 8-18 through Thursday 8-21. It appears ABC and CBS have some coverage but in a lot of cases all I see is "To be announced", as if they want to change their minds later.

    I can remember when all three networks had the convention for the entire night. In fact, I seem to recall doing stuff on the floor during the day as a child while a convention was on.

    It was not unusual for the nominee to emerge from the convention, so one watched to find out who it was actually going to be. Not unlike if you had cameras inside the Papal Conclave.

    Now it's a foregone conclusion, so there's not as much demand to show the entire event.

    In my local guide, ABC and CBS also have 1 h coverage 10-11 pm. PBS (at least my local station) has 3 h coverage 8-11 pm every night. Following week looks similar for the Republicans.

    Not sure I'm up to watch either.

    Not for one party or another but I can't imagine listening to hours of any group of politicians.

    Mine does too now.

    CBS was going to air "Bull" and ABC was going to air "To Tell the Truth".

    My local Guide has NBC, CBS, ABC with the convention but not the local Fox station. Imagine the cry that would come if it were the other way around for the Republican Convention with only FOX covering it
