And I dont have a game on CBS. That local or is CBS not having a game at all this week?

Yeah it's about 10 minutes tops of action. Americans like sports with lots of "pauses". Americans do not like sports that are continuous. Americans have a short attention span, so need sports with many pauses.

Soccer and hockey are both continuous sports where offense and defense simply flow together...americans hate that....that's why we are the only country in the world that doesn't like soccer.....

(for those about to argue, basketball is not continuous. You have an offense then defense and clearly defined. Plus many game stops along the way...)
