If You Are a Fan of NBC's Thursday Shows ...

By Rich Heldenfels Published: October 2, 2013

You may not know that WKYC is carrying the Browns game Thursday night instead of NBC's lineup. (When NFL games are on cable nationally, they still have to have a broadcast window in the teams' home markets.) So here is what will happen with the NBC shows that night:

New series "Welcome To The Family" and "Sean Saves The World" air right after the game.

WKYC's  online schedule has that estimated at 11 and 11:30 p.m., with Leno sliding to midnight and Fallon and Daly following. I am somewhat skeptical about those times, since the game could easily run more than the slotted three hours. But this is the plan, subject to change.


"Parks and Recreation"  airs at 2 a.m. Saturday (overnight into Sunday). "The Michael J. Fox Show: airs at 2:30 a.m. Saturday (overnight to Sunday).

NBC also has its own replays of "The Michael J. Fox Show" and "Sean Saves the World" set for 8 and 8:30 p.;m. Friday and the last I looked,  those were still set to air on WKYC.

"Parenthood" airs at 3 a.m. Saturday (overnight into Sunday).

WKYC is limited as to where it can put pre-empted programs because in most cases it  cannot pre-empt another NBC show to air the previously delayed show.
