Tonight, President Obama will be giving a speech on his immigration plans and it will interrupt some programming schedules. However, many of the big networks will not be airing the address. The Whitehouse released this statement in regards to the speech:
Our immigration system has been broken for decades — and every minute we fail to act, millions of people who live in the shadows but want to play by the rules and pay taxes have no way to live right by the law and contribute to our country. President Obama will address the nation to lay out the executive actions he’s taking to fix our broken immigration system.

The Latin Grammys will be interrupted by the President’s speech. Univision is delaying the Latin Grammy Awards to carry the president’s brief speech live at 8:00 p.m. ET. ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox networks won’t be airing the speech. CNN, Fox News and MSNBC will air it live though. And, even though ABC will not broadcast the speech on television, Deadline reports:
ABC is not carrying the president’s address on the television network — it will be carried on all our ABC News digital platforms, including Apple TV, and radio.
