Programmings Notes

Face the Nation has been perma-expanded to an hour, although affiliates can still opt to not carry the second half hour. 2/3 of CBS affiliates have chosen to take the extra half hour during the current 20-week trial that began in April. Local NFL pregame shows for Sunday’s early games tend to start an hour before the national CBS pregame show and will preempt the second half hour in many big markets this Fall.
