I'm kinda surprised someone hasn't done a broadcast station that is sports only. Between Football, Basketball, Baseball, Olympics, and a couple other sports alot of shows get preempted for them. Though most stations will at least give you a warning. "So and so will return in two weeks, but stay tuned next week for X." Fox doesn't usually even do that. Which makes it even weirder when they offset the show to start after the game. An 8 o'clock show starting at 10 something? Yeah thanks alot. Might help scheduling issues, but ratings already took a serious hit.
Same for Presidential Speeches that have no new info. I still laugh about the public outrage about the one that happened during 24.
