Thursday Night Football/J! pre-emptions this fall

Post by QBall » Wed Jan 31, 2018 1:48 pm

The NFL announced today that FOX will have Thursday Night Football starting this year through 2022: http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2227 ... ve-seasons

Looks like those of you with J! on FOX affiliates may have to worry about pre-empted shows this fall (as opposed to splitting between CBS and NBC this past year).

Fortunately, that's a significantly smaller section of the population.

Denver is the only FOX market to air J! at 8 PM Eastern or later, and only 4 others (Cincinnati, Syracuse, Salisbury MD, and Lake Charles LA) air it at 7:30 Eastern. So, about 3 million households are possibly affected by this (about half of those being in Denver)

Do you happen to have a breakdown of how many stations that carry the show are affiliates of each network?
