Something the average viewer doesn't realize is that the NFL Game assignments are made by the NFL and the Television Networks, not the local stations. They take our input, but generally base assignments on teams of regional viewer and advertiser interest. This can be an issue when there is interconference play like this weekend.
This weekend at 1PM the San Diego Chargers face the Bills and Houston faces off against the Giants. NFL/CBS has assigned WWNY the Houston Vs Giants game.
Another NFL programming note: During the 7 weeks of NFL Thursday night games, the normally scheduled 7:30 program, Wheel of Fortune, will not air. Thursday night’s episode of Wheel of Fortune will air on Friday night at 7:30 pm, and Friday night’s episode will air on Saturday night at 7:30 pm. Therefore, you will be able to see all weekday episodes at the time they normally air.
The last airdate for CBS’ NFL coverage will be October 23, 2014. Regular CBS programming and the return of Wheel of Fortune will occur on Thursday, October 30, 2014.
