Vulture has figured out that Gray Television, Hearst, Nexstar, Tegna, and Sinclair Broadcast Team — enormous Television set-station teams whose NBC affiliates attain about 50 % the country’s Television set residences — have instructed NBC that they are planning to preempt Thursday’s remotely filmed hour.
