Ann Romney's Speech at Republican National Convention Will Be Televised
Thanks to some quick rescheduling, Ann Romney's speech at the Republican National Convention will be broadcast on ABC, NBC and CBS this Tuesday, The Los Angeles Times reports.
Since the networks committed to airing only three nights of the four-day RNC, Romney's keynote speech originally set for Monday was not going to air. Instead, CBS and ABC had opted to air re-runs of Hawaii Five-0 and Castle, respectively, while NBC would air an all-new episode of Grimm. Now Romney's speech has been shifted to Tuesday, while speeches from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will be relegated to Monday's non-coverage night.

The networks' refusal to air the fourth night of RNC coverage isn't based on political bias. Since the Democratic National Convention is only receiving three nights of coverage, the RNC will receive equal broadcast time.
The RNC has since re-tooled their schedule, allowing Mitt Romney's wife to get the prime-time treatment.
