I've often wondered how NBC-TV broadcast affiliates like it when
during that network's top-rated nightly newscast, the anchor often
promotes shows that are scheduled later the same night on
MSNBC, or less-often, CNBC?  If I were an NBC affiliate but not
an O&O, I might consider delaying the NBC feed, and covering
such references with a promo or spot...but would the network 
let them get away with it?
