(CBS/AP) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - NASCAR president Mike Helton says the Daytona 500 will start Monday night at 7 p.m. Heavy rain soaked Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, forcing NASCAR to postpone the event for the first time in its 54-year history. A 80 percent chance of rain and thunder showers is in the forecast until Monday evening before the percentage drops to 20 percent tonight, according to weather.com.
Earlier, NASCAR vice president of operations Steve O'Donnell said the sanctioning body was prepared to hold the race under lights if necessary.

I know that NASCAR fans really want to watch the race, I do too and I am a casual fan.

But the outlash of the fans of House and Alcatraz (mostly House), is going to be LOUD.

The race should be moved to FX.... On FX is just an airing of Eagle Eye from 2008

Do they refund the advertisers that paid top dollar for Sunday afternoon, Daytona 500 rates? For a Monday evening, where there is a lot more rating challenge?

Is that a cross between a backlash and an outcry? :D

There may be more competition in prime-time, but with a higher number of people "available" to watch TV in prime-time, I suspect the number of viewers will end up being higher than it would have been on Sunday afternoon.

So has anything been said yet on when the episodes will air? Wasn't sure if it would be a special time/day or just pushed a week.

My guess is that they don't know yet.

Because with the race at 7pm ET... that is an hour before prime-time starts.
So if the track is not ready, they may still air the originally scheduled episodes as the filler..

Then it may be up to the affiliate's schedule.

Tonight episode will repeat Sat 3/10. I will also record Sat episode just in case.

FOX signed a contract with NASCAR saying they would not push race broadcasts off to sister networks regardless of when they take place.

As for the advertisers... Trust me they got their monies worth while we sat there for a few hours yesterday watching their commercials over and over until the decision was made to move the race to noon today, and now 7pm.

Fox could also possibly sacrifice the east coast and allow House and Alcatraz to air immediately following NASCAR (provided it starts promptly at 7 Eastern/4 Pacific) and allow east coast affiliates to air when convenient (Thursday @3am or Saturday Afternoon). I'm guessing we won't have much int he way of pre-festivities (as typical with a delayed race) so the race shouldn't really take more than 4 hours to run.

My curiosity is piqued as to how channel information—on DIRECTV®'s Guide —will be handled. Safest to record everything! (My guide is still showing the race is on Ch 2 here in the Bay Area). It certainly is not a definite definite for tonight, either.

I'll be trying to see how Guide updates happen or don't happen.

Did you not watch the Shootout, the truck race or the Nationwide race? We certainly have a chance for multiple cautions and red flags and GWC finishes. Looks to be a great race.

USA Today in an update says:

If it goes off as scheduled — and that remained a big "if" — the 54th running of the Daytona 500 is likely to be an unexpected ratings boon for Fox.

Fox, the sports/gameshow network has virtually no commitment to getting regular programming any ratings. "House", of course, is in its last season anyway. "Alcatraz" from a ratings standpoint is already a loser, so it appears they could delay the Monday lineup for a week.

Rain is likely to continue plaguing the race tonight, so this might be a moot point.

But if the race does pre-empt House/Alcatraz, there's no WAY they're going to sacrifice the east coast. I know they used to do that with Futurama during football season (:mad:), but there's no way these shows will go unaired in any significantly large area of the country. Both will be shown in primetime on FOX at some point.

I just looked at the live radar for that area and it's clear with nothing else showing up as approaching that area. Even IF they don't get it in tonight I seriously doubt that House and Alcatraz will be on. And since guide data has updated everyone's House and Alcatraz recordings have been cancelled on their units as well.

I'm looking at live radar right now, and there is rain in Ocala heading east, with more behind it.

I'm not saying it WILL rain, but rain is currently headed directly toward D-Beach.

From here:

Rain began falling again around 4 p.m. but the radar shows it may be of a short duration.

The heaviest rain in the Daytona Beach area stopped around 11:30 a.m. and there have been only occasional light sprinkles during the afternoon. The huge Jet Dryers have been on the Daytona International Speedway track for two hours and the only standing water left is on the flat apron area near the entrance to Pit Row.

Yes, my guide is now showing that the episode that was supposed to air tonight (clarence montgomery) is now airing at 10pm on 3/10.

I guess I'll have to wait to watch the 3/5 episode until after I've seen the episode on 3/10.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

That was scheduled before the Daytona rain delay problem. And that doesn't solve Fox's "House" problem.

The San Francisco Fox affiliate KTVU web site now has the race starting at 4 pm PST and ending at 9:30 pm. No schedule adjustments for airing the "House" and "Alcatraz" episodes scheduled for tonight appear in the next two weeks, yet.

I also forced a guide update on my Dish ViP612DVR and the race replaced everything from 4:00 to 10:00.
