Bush Speech Thursday at 9 to Delay Programming; TBS Reportedly Renews My Boys for Season 3

The major networks (ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC) plan to air President Bush's Address on Iraq including the democratic response Thursday at 9PM ET/PT. This will last about 25 minutes or so in total.
ABC will just delay the encores of Grey's Anatomy and MEN IN TREEES by 25 minutes or so and air them immediately following the speech in the Eastern and Central time zones. Mountain and Pacific will air the entire primetime from 8-11pm, following the speech.
CBS has not announced what they will do yet, but it will likely be similar to ABC and air CSI and Without a Trace on a delay in Eastern and Central time zones.
FOX will not air an all-new episode of Don't Forget the Lyrics at 9:00pm now. Instead, a repeat of the show's premiere will air. The Eastern and Central time zones will join that in progress when Bush's speech ends. The Mountain and Pacific time zones, the speech will lead into a new Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (which will air at 8pm ET) and the repeat of Lyrics.
NBC plans to move the 9:00pm repeat of The Office to 9:30, following the speech, instead of Scrubs, in the Eastern and Central time zones while Mountain and Pacific viewers will see both shows.

TBS has reportedly renewed original sitcom My Boys for a third season. No official announcement has been made yet, but we will certainly let you know when they do. The reports are saying that 8 episodes have been ordered thus far. The second season finale aired on Monday night on TBS.

We will have ION's October schedule probably tomorrow or Friday. So just a heads up. Check back with us!
