If you full coverage on old-fashioned, ABC/NBC/CBS broadcast tv I think the answer is NEVER. I believe CBS is showing some weekend pieces - try http://www.letour.fr/2002/us/index.html
for the schedule
I hope never again.....coonass

ABC thinks that the TDF is a reason to have 4 commercials every 6 minutes....even the World Cup is just another game that no body cares about....they place more emphasis on a Bowling Match than a World event....OLN is #1 for Sports coverage.
yep, the networks had limited coverage that sucked -nmTig

and didn't mean to imply otherwise..however, I did miss the 5:30am (Central) World Cup Finals....the local ABC Channel announced that they were going to televise at 11:30am (instead of 5:30am), then changed their mind at the last minute !!!....do you think they'd show it again??? HADES NO!! ABC should stick to Skiing and Bowling !! (When I lived in Memphis, TN, the finals of the Olympic Hockey game between USA & Russia were not televised because it was on a Sunday morning and the 'Bible-belt' needed to see their 'miracle preachers' instead....(this was either ABC or CBS....I really believe that it was ABC)....Long live ESPN for the World Cup and OLN for the TDF !!!!
Please NO!!! They'll ruin it! Pony up and get dish... eomspyderman
