    He will take $9 to $10 million dollars out of the purse of broadcast TV because of lost ad revenue during the sweeps period for that night. And for an industry already suffering that is not good. So, yes, they have a decision to make, but IMHO they will all cave. zap2it is only showing CNN as carrying the press conference but about Tuesday things will probably change too late for Tivo to get the changed guide data, making a mess of things once again.

    Do we assume they are going to take the whole hour and then the networks will just reschedule the 8pm shows, or could they take part of the hour and then show everything delayed that night? If the latter, then Lost and The Unusuals for us will need to be padded. Oh and Idol results.

    This is when it pays of to be on the left coast. It will be on at 6pm. But baseball is on at that time, and he can't even mess with baseball.

    Scrubs is moving that night's episode.

    From Facebook: Scrubs heads up: the next new episode "My Chief Concern" has been moved to Tuesday May 5th at 8/7c on ABC due to President Obama's press conference. "My Finale" still airs Wednesday May 6th at 8/7c. Seeing new episodes back-to-back is almost as delightful as Steak Night

    edit: Doh! Just saw ronsch's post!

    Then again, his first 50 days have probably been more eventful than Clinton and Bush's combined, and you could probably even throw in Bush Senior.

    May You Live in Interesting Times, indeed!

    Well are they showing it or not? The program guide says "Lie to Me", so it's not clear if that's the scripted drama or BO's news conference.

    I'm not sure how much clearer "rejects request for air time" could be.....

    Yes, they are showing Lie To Me as originally scheduled.

    I guess not...ignore the biggest financial crisis since the Depression and a war on two fronts, and there's really not much going on...
