The affiliate revolt was deeper than I thought. From what I have heard locally, a studio was offering a new filmed drama to NBC affiliates if they could get 30% or more to sign on for it. Other stations were contemplating doing news from 10-11:35 and then Leno at 11:35 or news from 10-11 and Leno at 11. Or moving a traditional afternoon estrogen fest like Oprah to 10. In other words "check your local listings". Which, as those that follow syndication ratings understand, means that the viewership of everything is really uncomparable unless you want to have a long discussion of the exact situation on the ground in 100s of markets. And, once the local stations get a slot of time, the network will never get it back. NBC, for all of the discussions and spin, screwed up, big time, and has a lot to do to keep itself on a par with CBS and ABC.
