    NO..when I said "Damn Yankees" I was JOKING!!! I'm originally from New Jersey and like to hear that they have won. The CBS decision was made, most likely, because of a Contract they have, and because there just may be a few more Yankee fans than Big Brother fans. :-)
    I'm always happy to meet another fan of the Bronx Bombers. I'm originally from Manhattan. I was hoping you had been referring to the musical, "Damn Yankees," but I do try to respond to perceived Yankee bashing. I apologize for the my mistaken perception.

    Yes, actually, it is. The Yankees have an exclusive contract where all of their games (can't remember whether it was strictly home games) are aired.

    So yeah, the Yankees are to blame. They ruin many a normal programming schedule.

    Oh, I didn't realize the networks were compelled to sign such agreements at gunpoint. Having worked for a major TV network for a number of years, I saw first-hand that they do what they perceive to be in the best interest of their bottom line.

    As to ruining normal programming, so do political speeches, conventions, other major sports events, awards shows, etc., etc., ad nauseam. Some are worth pre-empting normal programmings; others aren't. Which is which would be a matter of personal preference, I think.

    Hey can we get a thread retitle or something? "Tonight" is a floating target, and I almost freaked for a moment seeing it at the top again. Can't this just be renamed as a general "scheduling" topic if we're still talking here?
