Leeway For Network Programming

Post by TheForce » Sun Mar 05, 2017 8:30 am

How much leeway do local network affiliates have for not airing certain primetime shows aside from severe weather coverage?

It might have something to do with the ability to move the programing to another station. For example when WDIV preempts airtime its NBC programing can be moved to WADL. It might be different if it was in another market with less options.

Toledo certainly doesn't have that luxury.

Good question.
I ponder if 'XYZ could put GMA on 20, and keep the local on 7. Try to retain the folks changing channels to the Fox.

For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th) and one night in September 2017 (22nd), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!
