CBS and Fox both do it when necessary. The agreements between the NFL and the
networks require local games to be aired in their local markets in their
entirety, even if it means cutting away from a “Heidi” game to do so. It’s
also why if a local game is a blowout in the third quarter, most of the country
gets switched to a better game while the local markets still have to watch the
Lions—er, stay with the bad game.
