Where You Won't See President Obama's Immigration Address
President Obama's speech on his immigration executive action won't bump prime time programming on ABC, NBC, CBS or Fox.By Matt Picht | November 20, 2014
This is it. President Obama's about to make a major policy address that could shield over 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation through executive action.
As speeches go, this one is pretty significant. Obama's executive action will certainly kick off a partisan fistfight on Capitol Hill and could dictate the tone of Obama's final two years in office. So why aren't the networks showing the speech live on TV?
The president's big address won't be aired by ABC, NBC, CBS or Fox, who've all elected to keep their Thursday night prime-time schedules intact. So fans of "Grey's Anatomy," "The Biggest Loser," "The Big Bang Theory" and "Bones" won't have to worry about any presidential intrusions on their TV time.
