2010 week 7
Blows my mind that the Raiders game isn’t being shown in L.A. The Chargers have a minimal fan base there, where as Raiders fans are a majority. It’s very obvious that the NFL can’t stand this fact, and are trying to set the stage to move the Dolts there.
About the Goodland situation. This dates back to the early 1960’s, when the western part of Kansas was put into the Wichita market. About this time the NBC stations out west were acquired by the Wichita NBC station, and the TV (and radio) station in Goodland were acquired by the then owners of the TV station at Hays (140 or so miles down I-70), which operated as affiliates of the CBS station in Wichita (licensed to Hutchinson). The Hays guys at one point would own the Wichita station before selling their broadcast TV holdings. The Hays group owns the cable system in Goodland, and has for many years (they may be the original owner).
YOU WILL NOT GET BONUS FOOTBALL
60 minutes will start at 7pm. The rest of the country will see a late start of it after football.
If FOX has the double header where they run the OT show. The local network that doesnt air the game can run their own programing or they run repeats of FOX shows.
The schedule next week because of FOX doubleheader..the token CBS filler game is Tennessee at San Diego (a west coast city). So San diego wont see the Ot show but they will pick up the FOX pregame world series show for 7:30pm ET.
What the hell did the Tampa Fl and Seattle Washington area do to be the only parts of the country with no 4 o’clock game? The NFL has way to much power and something should be done to stop this type of bull shit. Thanks for nothing.
Did anybody notice that CBS, after the end of the Patriots-Chargers game, went straight to 60 Minutes rather than the end of Raiders-Broncos? I thought that wasn’t necessarily allowed. I guess with the Raiders routing the Broncos so badly, it was unnecessary to show the blowout. Any explanation why stations are allowed to go to primetime instead of show the finish of another game?
@Chris…the reason is because all the markets except the Oakland and Denver markets were on the Sn Diego-New England game
At halftime the CBS affiliates not required to air that game were shifted because CBS didnt want to lose viewers.
On Denver, Colorado Springs, and the Oakland markets in california and Reno stayed on that game. The outlier markets may have been shifted too (Reno, Medford, Redding)
CBS in Seattle couldn’t show a late game because the Seahawks were at home on FOX at the same time.
Since the Bucs did not sell out, their 1:00 home game vs the Rams was blacked out in Tampa. Because of this, they were allowed to show the Pittsburgh/Miami game in the early slot, therefore no late game in Tampa.
It is a good thing that CBS had two 1:00 Pacific games. Had the Raiders blowout been the only game, CBS would have lost all their viewers. A week earlier, Fox only had Dallas at Minnesota and that was a huge risk. The networks should always have at least two games for the later half of the doubleheader. It is just common sense.
I contacted my local CBS station before the Broncos-Raiders game to complain that they were not showing that game and they told me they had no control over what games were shown in Wichita, KS. That is a bunch of crock, isn’t it? In hindsight, it may have been a good thing because I don’t think I would have wanted to see the Broncos get slaughtered like they did
