Pre-Season Games Semi-Scheduled For August Sundays

The NFL announced their pre-season schedule six days ago.  NBC instantly posted it..  not on APT, but here.

Great for fans who diligently read the NBCSports website; not so great for letting NBC affiliate stations know.  Especially when the games still weren't in APT earlier today.


This evening, NBC gets around to this:

Type: Announcements
Message: The two (2) NFL 2012 Pre-season games on NBC are as follows: Sunday, August 19, Indianapolis @ Pittsburgh; Sunday, August 26, Carolina @ NY Jets. Details TBD.

Hmm...  no idea if the games are afternoon or prime, so to make all the salespeople happy, I guess I'll create versions of both.  Gotta love NBC Sports.

Update @2:35p PDT: Current clients have inventory and estimates for both daypart scenarios. 

A gentle reminder..  Local client MediaOffice users *must* close, then re-open MediaOffice on their desktop to see changes in inventories and estimates newly published by a station's RD or by RDRx service.
