Presidential woes in primetime

In Uncategorized on September 24, 2008 at 4:20 pm

President Bush will appear on all the major networks tonight to speak about the nation’s financial crisis. ABC, CBS and NBC will be carrying the speech tonight at around 9p/8c. The networks have not said how this will affect tonight’s primetime programming, but B&C points out that it is premiere week and the nets may be taking that into consideration.

Meanwhile, Republican candidate Sen. John McCain announced today that he’s suspending his campaign to return to Washington and help resolve this financial crisis. He asked that Friday’s primetime debate with Sen. Barack Obama be postponed; the word just in from MSNBC is that the Commission on Presidential Debates intends to go forward with the debate as scheduled. That debate will air Friday night on all the major networks, including PBS.
