We would love to show both the Packers and the Jets this weekend, but...

Hi all.

I'm writing this blog to hopefully save my weekend co-workers a few angry calls.

We can't show both the Packers and Jets games this weekend.

If you've ever noticed, CBS and FOX go back and forth every weekend for which network gets to show two games.

Sunday, when the Packers take on the Texans, it's FOX's turn.  So we as a CBS station can only show one game.  That's a locked tight contract the NFL has with the networks.

On top of that, we have no choice in which game we can show.  Since we're a Wisconsin station we have to show the Packers when CBS has them.

Trust me, we would love to show both games, but can't.

Go Pack!
