ABSTRACT
The article examines television broadcasting finance. Television stations which are affiliates of the broadcast television networks have lost their influence within that relationship as their profitability has declined sharply during the recession. NBC's ability to force its affiliate station in Boston, Massachusetts to broadcast "The Jay Leno Show" in the fall of 2009 rather than local news programming is cited as an example of the change in that relationship.
