Shuttle Landing Broadcast

Will the major networks (ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC) be broadcasting the shuttle's return tonight/tomorrow morning? (Do you think all local affiliates are carrying it if their network does?) I can't find any thing on their websites about coverage.

They all have it listed (according to Tivo) beginning around 4AM.

Oops, got ahead of myself... only ABC and CBS list it specifically, at 4 and 4:30.

Local affiliates may well air infomercials or syndicated shows, given the hour at which this is happening. Your best bet may be CNN, if you have access.

CNN has aired ads saying that coverage begins at 4:00 AM.

I prefer my coverage without all the anchor chatter... if you have cable, you may want to try C-SPAN. They were relaying NASA TV overnight, and will likely do so again for tomorrow's attempt.

Alternately, if you've got a broadband connection, you might try a NASA TV stream. Fun to have on at work... if your employer doesn't mind.

You could check TV Guide's listings.

Time zones, people! Time zones!

Given that the last re-entry was a disaster, I think it's a given that they're all going to have live coverage (most of them are running network newsy things around then anyway, like World News Now.)

Before the network cut-in you can keep track at SpaceFlightNow, which more or less blogs the mission.
