Speaking as someone who has worked in the media for more than 40 years, CBS is hoping the live coverage carries right up to the start of TPIR with the hopes that everyone who got up before dawn to watch all the pomp and circumstance of the funeral will be ready for something less somber for the next hour. Or, they fell asleep with the TV on thatís hooked up to a Nielsen device.

In Canada we.know CityTV will.not air price because of the funeral, even though CityTV does not have a national news cast.

According to the Order of Service released by Buckingham Palace, the portion that takes place at Windsor Castle is supposed to start at 11 AM Eastern. Going by TV listings, it is supposed to last an hour, and ABC and NBC are shown as airing it, although CBS and Fox are not.

my 2 cents: the TPIR social media pages wouldn't be promoting it if they knew it'd be preempted

Especially that one on Instagram, "therealpriceisright," which I am following-- it'd be a bad look if this premiere was hyped as much as it was, and then was preempted on the day of.

Itís also worth considering thereís a whole other part of the country when these decisions are made. CBS out west will get to have local news for at least a part of the important morning time period on rather important owned stations like KCBS and KPIX. Thatís not exactly insignificant. CBS Mornings, though presumably nearly all royal funeral coverage, will air, while GMA and a good chunk of Today wonít. Less significant than the revenue CBS may still be able to not lose for an hour of news, but not worthless by any means.

On KYW in Philly, the CBS coverage ended at 9, but they aired an hour of "CBS Mornings" from 9-10. LMaD aired at 10, so it sounds good for Price to air at 11.

City TV was showing funeral coverage till 1pm (it's a bigger deal for us since Canada is a Commonwealth realm).  WIVB (Buffalo affiliate) aired Price in its entirety

I bet the show aired entirely in all U.S. markets across the nation by now.

And with that utterly pointless observation made after the end of the show's timeslot in Hawaii, I think it's time we LOCK this thread.
