Presidential Address On Gulf Oil Spill Set For Tuesday, 8pm Eastern
President Obama will address the nation on Tuesday at 8pm Eastern time about the Gulf oil spill. The speech is expected to take 10-15 minutes.
Fox has already announced it will carry the speech and bump the starting time of its 2 hour Hells Kitchen back, but air the entire show.
No word from other broadcast networks yet, but ABC will likely shorten its Jimmy Kimmel Live or NBA Countdown pre-game show, and keep Game 6 of the NBA Finals telecast unchanged. CBS is scheduled to air repeats, and NBC has new Losing It With Jillian and America’s Got Talent along with a Last Comic Standing repeat scheduled.
