    I hope they continue but last night's sounded like the last. The monologues are posted on YouTube.

    The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

    From The Hollywood Reporter 'Killing Eve' Premiere Moves Up to Fill in for 'Walking Dead'

    This is the kind of rescheduling we're going to see. In this case the launch of the AMC zombie spinoff series The Walking Dead: Beyond World has been postponed to the end of the year as a result of the pandemic.

    I thought American Idol and Voice are live programming.

    Now that the Kentucky Derby has been postponed , suspended, or cancelled ; I am wondering what is the NFL going to do about the 2020 draft and schedule release?

    The major networks usually release fall schedules in May.

    NFL draft is happening as scheduled. And there is no reason it shouldn’t.

    Schedule may need to wait till June or July till they know a few more things about the rams and raider stadium construction and if it will still be completed on time. Otherwise other than the question of it they will have fans I don’t see any reason to not schedule the games as usual.

    At home editions of Colbert return tonight. Fallon and Noah did at home editions last week. Noah needs an audience. I'm not sure how Colbert will do without an audience.

    I watched the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night. There are a lot of COVID-19 special programs lined up for the temporarily home bound.

    I watched Colbert at home. Wasn't pleasant. They all need audiences.

    There was an article in the L.A. Times on Sunday that mentioned that, of the 50-something pilot shows the networks ordered for the 2020-21 season, only one had completed production before the shutdown. The networks have been ordering additional scripts for these shows, but nothing compares to being able to see an actual episode.

    Speculation at this point is that most network shows won't premiere until November, or even January.

    IMHO,

    - Triple Crown. Horse racing is still going on, mostly because no more workers are needed to conduct the races than are needed to maintain the horses anyway. Churchill Downs Inc, Stonarch, and NYRA, could have held their cards, but seem to have canceled just to get that live gate money for those days, the only days where live gate really even matters in that sport. Penny-wise and Pound-foolish, IMHO. A sports starved populace, and a gambling deprived sub-culture, could have been exposed to this sport, which I love, and the benefits could have been long-term.

    - Network schedule releases. Obviously there won't be a big party in NYC for the ad buyers and local station owners. Question is how many new shows are ready to go, and how many old shows can get film in the can by September. I think this year will be like those years where the writers or actors went on strike, and we may see reruns deep into the fall.

    - NFL. One big question is baseball. While, if Oakland is really dead, no teams share stadiums anymore, many share a common parking situation and cannot hold two games at once, or even two in one day. They need to know what baseball is doing and work on that.

    As to LA and LV, LA is no problem, the teams would just go back to their old venues if needed. LV is more of an issue. Sam Boyd Stadium is a dump, but if they are going fan-free, it would be fine, or they could play anywhere in LV. A HS field would be fine.

    I do not think you will see the London or Mexico City games this year.

    If you believe that the golf is really starting back, then Fox (US Open) and CBS (The Masters) each have a weekend where they really could only carry 1 PM games, or no games at all. Maybe they trade their afternoon package for that one weekend to NBC and take the night game?
