One More Minute For The Playboy Club Monday

The following is pure conjecture, and is not based on any firm information.

Based on news reports yesterday about PTC protests and national advertisers cancelling spots in The Playboy Club, I'm not surprised to see a comment in APT this morning about giving local stations an additional minute of local spots in Monday's airing.

My guess is NBC Network couldn't sell the spots that were cancelled quickly, and perhaps couldn't even give them away, so they've dropped them in local stations' laps. After all, I'm guessing NBC is busy trying to figure out how to sponsor 5.5 hours of network programming a week.

Don't count on this being a regular thing.. I'm guessing the Brian Williams news hour may well take this time slot in October.
