While the official excuse is that the speech will be “overtly political” and that there are straight news outlets to broadcast President Obama’s immigration reform speech, we all know the real reason networks won’t be interrupting regular programming tonight.
Because you need to live-tweet “Grey’s Anatomy,” and it could theoretically cut into the Raiders – Kansas City kickoff at 8:25pm.
We should all be ashamed of ourselves. Univision will give the President ten-minutes because the Latin Grammy’s start at 7 p.m. Telemundo, CNN, and PBS will broadcast the speech in full. The hashtag, if you’re curious is #ImmigrationAction. Or, #TGIT.
