ESPN - NBC games/Highlights
 
I am hearing that ESPN's Primetime Live is about over. No pregame highlights... until after midnight on Sunday. I guess the new contract prohibits that, giving all those rights to NBC and NBC is taking the Sunday night games and ESPN get MNF starting next year for 1.1 Billion dollars. Is this nuts... going to change the way some of us watch tv.

No Prime Time? I love watching Bhermans highlights! Is NBC gonna put a highlight show on before it's Sunday Night Game?

NO PRIME TIME!!! Its technically over... on Sundays that is. I see them running it on Monday night though. After mid night makes no sense. Also, makes sense to have an NBC-Prime Time type show, especially since they get the rights to air highlights on Sundays. Its kind of drastic change... but what it boils down to is that they just switch what they do on Sundays and Mondays.

One has to think that NBC will be putting highlights before the night game. I think you will probably see ESPN putting more highlights at halftime of the Monday night game

It could happen... just tired of NBC having the damn stars of some of there shows dropping by "accident", 'hey look who dropped by from NBC's blah blah... and you can catch so and so on Wed. nights at 9pm...

I think ESPN will have it half hour before the MNF pregame show. Theoretically they could air it all day after midnight though.
