NHL Overtime Will Air Three Nights a Week in October, Five in January
September 19, 2011 1 Comment
VERSUS is tinkering around with the scheduling of it’s nightly hockey highlight show, NHL Overtime, cutting the four-nights-a-week show to three nights at the start of the season, but expanding to five nights a week by January.
Overtime, which NBC announced today will be hosted by Bill Patrick and Jeremy Roenick and feature a rotating cast of analysts, will air Monday-Wednesday every week from October thru December, at it’s normal time of 11 p.m. ET. This coincides with VERSUS expanding it’s game coverage to include a weekly Wednesday night game, meaning VERSUS will essentially air NHL Overtime almost exclusively on nights when it airs an NHL game beforehand.
When January rolls around, and VERSUS rebrands itself to become NBC Sports Network, the channel will be airing NHL Network Sunday through Wednesday, with an additional show on Fridays, all at 11 p.m. ET. While the Sunday night show also coincides with VERSUS adding a game that night, VERSUS will only air a Friday night game once this season.
