>It’s ABC’s turn to have their fast national ratings for Monday programming inflated by Monday Night Football.  KMBC in Kansas City is carrying the Chargers-Chiefs game in prime time instead of the ABC line-up.  So assume Scared Shrekless, Dancing with the Stars and Castle will go down a tenth of a point in the official nationals from the fast nationals in the morning.

CBS will be impacted slightly (just in the 8-9 pm hour).  KFMB in San Diego will carry the game from approximately 5:30-9:00 pm PT and then carry the CBS lineup from 9-11 pm.  Look for How I Met Your Mother and 2 Broke Girls to be overstated by a tenth of a point or so in the fast nationals.  

Kansas City is market #31, with 0.82% of TV households.  San Diego is market #28, with 0.94% of homes.
