Longer SNF Broadcast Times Extended in October

Posted: 09/26/2012 05:19:08 PM
Air Date: 10/14/2012 Sunday
Start Time: 08:20:00 PM [ET]
Duration: 03:10:00
Type: Time Change
Message: Time Change: NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL now airs apx. 8:20-apx 11:30pm ET. Please see updated contingencies and show details for furhter information.

This is the Green Bay @ Houston game, perhaps with professional refs.

News Directors Alert: While NBC may be moving around spots within this and the pre-game show, the net result is local newscasts get pushed back further on a weekend where CBS does not have a double-run, hence CBS affiliated late news will air at the top of the hour.  Perhaps this will happen on October 28th as well.

With so much money already booked for "issue" and political advertising in local newscasts, changes are quite painful.
