This is what I've been saying for MONTHS! I'm glad someone else isn't seeing this through rose-colored glasses. I think March 2009 is even pushing it.
I could very well see the affiliates, whether or not NBC keeps DAYS, dropping it before the 2008 Olympics. That puts DAYS in a bad situation: if affiliates aren't airing the show, ad rates drop, which means the budget drops too, meaning NBC and Sony/Corday won't be able to absorb the cost of production without major, massive cast cuts all at once.
Raymond, I never quite understood that.
I know that NBC owned affiliates cannot drop the shows, but can the independant stations drop any show at any time?
