    Neither ABC nor CBS seems to be planning to run the speech, at least according to their web sites. ABC is running three hours of Grey's Anatomy. CBS shows no changes.

    The ABC flagship in NYC, WABC/7, announced on last night's local news that that the speech would indeed be aired. If you have DirecTV and rely on the NY ABC feed, make sure you pad.

    ABCs website now shows Greys Anatamy (last night's show rerun) being run at 8:00. I guess they can interrupt that and keep the rest of the night on time.

    Huh? That Oprah crap was slated to run at 8 (EDT), then the two hour season finale of GA at 9 (EDT). Must have been a last minute change to allow ABC to switch the the President's speech if they discover he will announce something substantive.

    Well, with some manual records you should be able to get it so that only the first 20 minutes of CSI (or the last 20 minutes of 24, take your pick) is non-HD... If you care enough to go through the trouble, that is.

    I'm sorry...But you people disgust me. One of the biggest reasons our country has so many problems is because its citizens care more about a fictional show than they do the ACTUAL government. If you have such a big problem with the Government, why don't you get off your buts, stop complaining about missing "24" and do something about it? I mean seriously, I don't want to miss my shows anymore than the next guy, but I'm not gonna wine about it. The President is addressing the Nation about something he feels is important for us to know. So ya know what I'm gonna do? Im gonna sit my fat ass down and watch the address, and listen to it. And I'm just going to hope that the networks choose to show the shows at a different time. Because I'd rather know what my government is doing (wether I agree with it or not), as opposed to kowing what a Fictional character is going to do. I think the government of my Country is a little bit more important tham my entertainment. And if more of you cared about it..just a little bit more...maybe some of the problems in this country would be fixable.

    LOL...thanks guys, I was in a hurry, writing that post while at work. Don't always have time for spell check, and I'm usually much better than that. Thanks for the fixes. I just hope people still got the point...

    My wife emailed this to me:

    I don't see it on ABC's site, though I do see the GA repeat of last night's ep airing at 8:00. Do folks on the west coast see the prez live?

    I don't watch any presidential address because they never say anything. I expect more of the same tonight.

    When they start saying something versus promoting their agenda or actually start answering questions I'll start watching.

    Until then, same old, same old. I'll watch something that I've previously recorded.

    well you seem to have thouroghly missed the point that this is a FORUM and thread about TV shows. It is not a forum about government issues. In fact political talk such as you posted is strictly against forum rules.

    so the people in this thread are doing something about not missing 24. A few have said they do not care about the address itself and others have said they watch everyone of them. I however feel that sitting down on my butt to watch a presidential address is not doing anything active about any problems.

    But the point remains this is a thread about how TV shows are being rescheduled and people in this thread are actively engaged in finding out how the schedule is being adjusted to accomodate the President of our great nation. Your post is out of place and against forum rules.

    Swerving back on topic...

    The following was sent to ABC affiliates this morning:

    IOW, ABC plans to roll a filler Grey's Anatomy to join in progress and won't have to juggle the rest of the evening's programming.

    CBS finally decided what they are going to do.

    Air the Prez at 8 (EDT), they are expecting 20 minutes, then slide the rest of the night in its entirety.

    Will only affect East and Central time zones.
    If I were in those zones, I'd pad my recordings 10 minutes if the guide data ever gets updated,
    otherwise set up manual recordings.

    Mountain will still start on time, as our prime doesn't start for another hour,
    and most stations have local news at 6 (MDT), and can collapse to accomodate the President.

    Pacific will be normal.

    No, this is a FORUM about missing TV shows, This thread is about the President having an address, and people who are more worried about TV than that. However, point noted, and I will leave you and the rest of the people here to your worries. I did not intend to offend or upset anyone.

    It looks like I am going to have to download 24 and How I Met Your Mother via bittorrrent due to this speech. This better be one hell of a speech.

    I wonder how this will affect HD in Mountain, though. Our stations record the East Coast HD feed and timeshift it for Mountain playback. So from 6:20 to 7:20 (Mountain Time), they'll be recording Prison Break, which is supposed to start here at 7:00. I don't know if they'll be able to start playback of the show before it's finished recording here. I hope we don't get stuck with SD :(

    (After thinking some more - I think Fox has a separate HD mountain feed, so Prison Break should be fine)
