    The good thing is that, for those of us out in the Pacific Time Zone, this occurs at 6pm, so it misses all the 'prime time' schedule. I would hope to heck that, if this happens (keeping a lid on my opinions), I'd like to think there is no way it will last two hours.

    For the East and Central time zones - sorry. :(

    (for calendar challenged like me -- and those avoiding a click-thru to the NYTimes -- this is for tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan.8th around 9pm Eastern: the White House has requested network airtime for Prez.Trump to speak about the current gov't shutdown situation)

    My latest feed says:
    CNN will carry it live; FOX is undecided; at least TWO major networks still deliberating, filled with skepticism about handing over airwaves for a political statement.


    also, for future reference, the annual State of the Union address is being scheduled for Jan.29th

    Hope ABC doesn't pick it up. That's the only network channel where I have shows recording from 8-10pm that night. As long as it doesn't last 2 hours (PLEASE!) those are safe unless there is some national news blurb that cuts in after the speech. I just think they should move those new show episodes down to the following week to cover all time zones.

    I only have The Late Show on CBS and that's not until 11:35pm.

    On NBC I have one show recording at 10pm so that should be safe, too, even if this thing goes long.

    In the past, if the networks have to pull new episodes to air a Presidential address in the Eastern Time Zone, they usually run repeats in the Pacific Time Zone.

    I only have two shows tomorrow, but they're both at 8:00. Gifted on Fox, and Rachel on MSNBC. The latter I've already written off, but hopefully Fox won't air it...

    I have a whole slew of ABC comedies on the lineup, plus New Amsterdam on NBC.

    Oops, forgot the Project Blue Book premiere. But that's on History, so no worries...no wall will come between me and it!

    Seeking support for a wall, Trump plans prime-time speech, border visit

    All 4 broadcast networks have agreed to air it. I have one recording tomorrow at 9 pm, right when this starts, which will get screwed up. I have no idea when it will re-Air.

    On a side note, the Democrats are asking for equal network time, though I can’t see the networks giving that.

    I read that he was only going to take up 8 minutes and that all planned shows will air in full. I padded my recordings by an hour just to be safe.

    Don't that have to provide at least some, given what one assumes to be the politics nature of the broadcast?

    “8-minutes-ish” from what I’ve read, which with Trump could be anywhere from 8 to 60 minutes. That also doesn’t include any possible democratic response (if allowed).

    If it goes much longer than 8 minutes I can’t see the networks airing a new episode.

    I don't think so...I don't ever remember the other party being given equal time for a presidential address in a non-campaign situation...

    Yeah I think equal time is only during campaigns.

    Maybe I'm mis-recalling the contexts, then--I seem to recall "the other party" being given a small amount of time (not an equal time match) to address what the president has said, in non-emergent issue addresses.

    There is usually an other party response after the SOTU.

    But I don't think that gets carried on the regular networks (of course, CNN etc. carry everything, but they always carry everything, including LA freeway police chases; that's what they're there for).
