LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC, CBS and NBC have all signed on to carry President Obama's latest news conference this Wednesday at 8:00/7:00c.
FOX will once again be the only major network not to carry the event, instead opting to stick with its two-hour edition of "So You Think You Can Dance." FOX also chose not to air Obama's previous news conference on April 29.
As for the other networks, CBS agreed this morning to turn over the hour of its lineup, which was already devoted to repeat programming.
ABC and NBC subsequently signed on after the White House shifted the planned hour-long broadcast from 9:00/8:00c to 8:00/7:00c.
To accommodate said coverage, the Alphabet will slide "Wipeout" and "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" back an hour to 9:00/8:00c and 10:00/9:00c, respectively. "Over a Barrel: The Truth about Oil," originally set for 10:00/9:00c, will instead air on Friday, July 24 at 10:00/9:00c as a special edition of "20/20."
The Peacock then will simply drop its 8:00/7:00c encore of "America's Got Talent."
