I remember when I was a kid growing up in central Mass. in the '50s and 
'60s, there would be an occasional momentary slip-up either with the 
networks' microwave feeds or with the local stations' commercials, and 
we'd receive a few seconds of New York's 2, 4 or 7.   It seldom 
occurred, but it was amusing (and kind of cool) when it did.   -Doug

There was a time that Black Rock considered WCBS-TV the network. ABC 
and NBC at least went black during local breaks - CBS kept feeding 
channel 2.
