Has NBC publicized any particular reason why they preempted last night’s episode of The West Wing and all of tonight’s shows?
For last night, I figured perhaps the story line of a North Korean pianist wanting to defect amid secret negotations to reduce N. Korea’s nuclear threat may have been a bit too timely, and by request of the White House deferred the airdate. Or perhaps under orders, who knows.
But I can’t figure out tonight’s sudden change. They were advertising the new episodes of Friends, Will & Grace, and ER until about 19:30 PDT last night, and then today it’s all reruns with a crawl indicating the line-up returns with new programming next week.
I knew they had decided to pull Coupling at least for a couple of weeks (thank heavens, and may that stupid show never see the light of day again), but I can’t imagine their decision to pull one show would result in a change to all the rest on a given night.
Anyone know anything more about this?
