When the Super Bowl airs Sunday on CBS, the other television networks will deploy a "run for the hills" strategy, reports the New York Post.
The night’s most popular shows will almost all disappear from TV, although some programs will air repeats, instead of getting hammered in the ratings, the story notes.
ABC is pulling "Revenge" and "Once Upon a Time," choosing instead to air repeats of "Shark Tank" and "Modern Family." Fox is going to all repeats, while NBC will run repeats of “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers" all night.
One popular Sunday show, however, is sticking to its plan to air an original episode: PBS’s "Downton Abbey" will air a new installment at 9 p.m., the piece reports.
