    Wed Apr 29, 8PM EDT.

    This will at least hit new episodes of Scrubs, Better off Ted, Lie to Me, Rules of Engagement and America's Next Top Model. Others could be affected if the above get bumped to later time slots.

    NBC is the winner here, as they had already scheduled only repeats that night. ;)

    It seems as though the president should just set a regular monthly date for these things, so the networks don't have to keep juggling schedules around him on a week notice or less.

    OK, I repent of wanting Bush to have done more news conferences. I repent repent repent. If they give the hour 8 PM to the news conference. Then they only have to shift an hour of TV. There are a lot of shows ending their season right now so this is a pain. I think the Season Finale for Better Off Ted is on that day, for example.

    Agreed, but at least we have notice so the networks and TiVos can adjust. As I recall, most of Bush's press conferences were on the spur of the moment.

    I'll read that to say that he only called press conferences for things that were actually urgent that he talk to the entire country at once, and not for things that most of us would be happy to read about in the next day's news.

    You people voted for change. Be careful of what you ask for.

    I hope we can see Piyush "Bobby" Jindal give a response again. That was better than most scripted comedies.

    +1!

    Meanwhile, perhaps Wednesday would be a great night to seed my new Chia Obama (Determined style). :)

    At least it's on Wednesday this time -- I don't have anything on Wednesday anymore! Yaay me!

    Aah, the good old days of Ronnie (or how soon some of us forget), he used to be on the air, just as much if not more. I remember, because we use to talk about it in class. Back then of course, we didn't have DVRs, we might have been lucky to have had VCRs, and in the end all that was worth watching WAS on the 3 networks. So stop complaining, and be glad that at least this clown is communicating where the last clown was so secretive.

    Why doesn't he just post the text from his teleprompter on TCF so we can read it at our leisure?

    This guy likes all the free press time from the adoring press. I will watch cable channels in order to avoid this. I read the newspaper regularly so I don't need to hear what he says with his pre approved reporters he talks to. Why does every single press conference he holds have to be in prime time?

    Just because there is a press conference, the networks don't have to cover it! Maybe they've decided that a press conference announced two weeks in advance is not news because I've seen no indication of changed schedules. The Futon Critic is still showing the normal schedule for Wednesday and I just fast forwarded through a FOX promo for Lie to Me to show at it's normal time on Wednesday!
