here in dc we've found that because the local ABC is not owner operated they are allowed to replace a certain amount of programing with their own programing.

The local station buys rights to movies also. if they feel their movie will get a better rating, or if they are nearing the end of their window for broadcast rights on the movie, they will replace the network content.
Strange - it's doing things like this that led NBC to pull its programming from its longtime San Francisco affiliate (now the San Jose affiliate covers San Francisco as well, which is not good if you live in, or north of, San Francisco and you don't have cable).

You have to remember that ABC sells commercial time along with Ugly Betty, and the advertisers aren't particularly happy when its commercials aren't aired nationwide as promised.
