Under this scenario, IF AVAILABLE, the Nashville @ Anaheim Gm #5 will air in the 3-6p ET time period OR If Nashville/Anaheim is NOT AVAILABLE, then 3-6p ET will revert to local programming.

2017 Golden Globes

Message: THE 74TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS is booked. Please see contingencies on this day for further details and impact to other dayparts. Please advise clearance.

Golden Globes have been running out of sweeps for diary markets for a long time, so this number is tough to prove or disprove. Most RD's use a watered-down PAV from Academy Awards as the basis for this audience composition. 

Don't forget NBC will announce the annual Red Carpet Show before the Globes, eventually.  Of course, my clients already have both in inventories and estimates.

CBS and FOX Announce NFL Schedule; NBC Silent

Yesterday, both CBS and FOX detailed their entire NFL schedule for advertisers.

Perhaps NBC is waiting until TGIF today to announce theirs, as the NFL has already published it.

http://www.nfl.com/schedules/2016/REG1

My NBC clients get competitive estimates for Fox and CBS, and they are able to see when major games air against them.  But since the NFL has kindly listed all of the NBC match-ups, I'm entering those as well, while waiting for NBC's official notice. Looks like NBC does not get a New Year's Day game, but it does have a Christmas night game with Broncos @ KC.


Update on Friday, April 29th @ 4:55pm EDT..

The individual  NFL games now appear in APT.   I'm guessing we'll see a TGIF posting announcing that in the next two hours.  After all, it is Friday.
