Although the President didn't speak until around 11:35 p.m. ET, most networks cut into their programming around 10:45 p.m. The interruption cut off the tail end of CBS' CSI: Miami
, NBC's Celebrity Apprentice
and ABC's Brothers & Sisters
on the East Coast.
Meanwhile, the West Coast missed out on NBC's America's Next Great Restaurant
finale, and although CBS aired The Amazing Race
and Undercover Boss
late, CSI: Miami
was pre-empted altogether. ABC, which stuck with the news coverage longer than the other networks, aired Desperate Housewives
at 10 p.m. PT, followed by Brothers & Sisters.
Although an ABC rep said the network as yet has no plans to re-air its bumped shows, CBS and NBC will air repeats. CSI: Miami
willl air Saturday, May 7 at 9/8c on CBS. Meanwhile, Celebrity Apprentice
will air Friday, May 6 at 8/7c on CNBC, followed by Next Great Restaurant
