It's ironic that, much like a major disaster narrowly averted in the Fox series "24", Comcast and Sinclair have come to a last minute agreement that will allow the Fox network to stay on, at least for a few more days, here in Pittsburgh:

"Comcast Corp. and Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc., owner of local Fox affiliate WPGH-Channel 53, today extended an agreement that allows the cable company to retransmit WPGH and its Fox programs, including "American Idol" and "24," for 10 more days."
-Pittsburgh Tribune Review

As I understand it, Sinclair wants Comcast to pay to re-transmit its' free, over-the-air signal. Choosing who I want to win this fight is like being in prison and and having to pick which of my cellmates I'd like to have rape me. Can't we all just get along?

So, if you're a fan of American Idol, the good news is that the show will still air tonight. And thank God, because if it didn't...
