I fear that's not true, unfortunately.
As of this morning, zap2it still seems to think that ABC, CBS, and PBS
won't be covering the Presidential address (although it shows Fox and NBC
going along with the White House). I could *almost* imagine CBS favoring
season finales over a President whose poll numbers are so bad, but PBS
skipping a live Presidential address? Oprah Winfrey allowing ABC to show
taped highlights of one of her events instead of POTUS live? Unbelievable.
I think this is a good time to set the "record after" options for any
Monday night shows you have on PBS and major US networks just in case
zap2it's data isn't updated at all, or isn't updated soon enough for
your mythfilldatabase runs to save your schedules.
Many thanks to Jay for the heads-up.
