Fox Provided Emmy Updates to World Series Viewers

TVinsite notes that Fox provided in-game updates on the Emmy Awards to viewers of Game 7 of the World Series and that irked unnamed executives at CBS. So what? Many of us have muttered at the TV during sports events, knowing that some other important news event is taking place, but the in-game update feature keeps rotating scores of other sports events. The fact that the winner of awards such as "Best Comedy Series" was flashed across the screen during the game made perfect sense at the time.

As the TVinsite article says, if CBS is upset that Fox did this, they should have waited until the next Sunday to stay away from Game 7.
