    I actually thought about this the other day and then I thought "nahhh, they would rather have an hour long program every weekend discussing any new details about the lockout."

    I don't think it (the double lockouts) will impact FS positively or negatively, but it could help the NHL. I like Hockey (also NFL, and to a limited extent NBA basketball), so I am OK if they show more hockey on TV. However, they will somehow make the NFL season happen, with free agents that did not make the NFL team.

    I think they will give the time slots to high school football and D- league NBA (may be even pee wee league of baseball) before they give it to FS. Isn't it sad?

    Even if they do decide to show more figure skating, one any network but the ones that already have contracts with USFS and ISU (which is NBC in the US), they will show cheesy-made-for-tv stuff because they don't have the rights to the elite competition stuff.

    The NFL is much more likely to reach an agreement within a reasonable time- may be by the end of September. The NBA not so much. It will drag till at least December. JMO.

    i would think not, the last time I remember there was a TV void due to a sports strike was the NHL lockout. Those empty slots ended up being filled with poker.

    Professional eating, poker, wipeout style shows, these will benefit. Skating,maybe barely.

    And yeah, a fall without NFL or NBA, let's see how Gary Bettman messes this up.

    I think the NFL will work something out in time to save at least part of next season. I don't think they want to miss the season. The NBA on the other hand- they've got some serious issues on the financial side and I don't think it will just blow away.
