In a plot twist correct out of 30 Rock, NBC’s greatest local affiliate teams have made a decision not to broadcast the network’s approaching 30 Rock reunion special, indicating at the very least fifty percent the state will not be equipped to see it when it debuts Thursday night time. Vulture has learned that Grey Television, Hearst, Nexstar, Tegna, and Sinclair Broadcast Group — enormous Tv-station teams whose NBC affiliate marketers get to about half the country’s Television set houses — have informed NBC that they are preparing to preempt Thursday’s remotely filmed hour.

The evident cause for the selection, for every resources common with the issue: The station house owners think the 30 Rock reunion, which was created by the NBCUniversal ad-profits division as a replacement for the regular upfront presentation, is as well significantly of a marketing for the company’s new Peacock streaming system. Station house owners are understandably fearful about Peacock siphoning viewers from linear Tv set, significantly given that the new system will present upcoming-working day reruns of NBC reveals on its top quality tier (and week-late access to reruns on its free amount). Reps for station teams contacted by Vulture, which includes Grey and Sinclair, did not reply to requests for remark. An NBC rep confirmed the preemptions but declined further more remark.
