All three broadcast networks expand their newscasts tonight

November 5, 2008 | 10:22 am

After attracting huge audiences with their political coverage, the television networks aren't about to change the subject. It's been all politics, all day on the cable news networks. And tonight, Brian Williams, Charles Gibson and Katie Couric are all getting an hour to chew over the election results, as opposed to their usual 30 minutes.

It's not often that the broadcast news divisions do expanded editions of the evening newscasts, since that forces local stations to choose between the network broadcast and their local news or syndicated programming.
