An important exception is "eventized" content.  So The Big Game
is broadcast at the same time across the nation.  So are award
shows (although in the pacific, they are often also rebroadcast
later during the prime time period[0], which may be complicated
by the fact many awards shows last longer than their allotted
three hours (people just keep talking)).

[0] Which is why, given shows like the Oscars are actually
occurring in the pacific time zone, you see everyone walking
the red carpet in daylight before the event starts.  The Tony's,
on the other hand, originate in NYC, so some people on the left
coast coast are wondering why everything looks like evening
(some people don't understand time).
