Not sure if Survivor will be delayed or not. The President will be speaking at 8:30pm Eastern!

Anyone got any more info on this?

You gotta be freakin' kidding me.  Every Thursday night all I look forward to is drinking beer and watching Survivor at 8:00.  I am going to be livid if Survivor is pre-empted.

I just heard this today on the news. Maybe the 24 hour news channels will cover it, and not the networks, but I don't know!

Press conference moved back to 8:00pm Eastern now!

Still don't know if CBS will cover it!

 ABC is airing it

Bush News Conference Prompts RTV6 Lineup Changes Thursday

POSTED: 12:57 pm EST April 28, 2005

A prime-time news conference to be held tonight by President George W. Bush has prompted RTV6 and ABC to alter their programming lineups.


To accommodate the 7:30 p.m. news conference, ABC will not show the movie "Sweet Home Alabama" on Thursday night. At the end of the news conference, a special 90-minute edition of "Primetime Live" will air.

The "RTV6 Nightcast" will air at a special time, at 10 p.m.

CBS Not Likely To Pre-Empt 'CSI' For Bush 
      #108973 - 05/04/28 08:43 PM

As of this afternoon, CBS seemed to be sticking to its usual programming for tonight. The official CBS site still listed both Survivor and CSI, and the web site of the CBS affiliate in Charleston, West Virginia carried a message saying "CBS is not expected to carry President Bush's prime-time news conference tonight," while directing viewers to CBSNews.com for a webcast of the press conference. In addition, Media Life Magazine noted that CBS, NBC and Fox weren't expected to pre-empt, but that ABC would probably carry the press conference live, as it didn't have a very strong line-up for tonight anyway.

Well, considering how lame Bush's last press conference was (remember how he didn't answer the questions he was asked?), CBS is smart not to pre-empt a ratings powerhouse, especially for such non-news as a phony SS "crisis" and a big oil give-away masquerading as "energy policy".  Besides, with other news stations carrying it, I don't see that CBS has to be a public-service broadcasting network.
