Anyone know what happened to West Wing

last night?? I was out, and set my sattelite system to "tape" it, and I got "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" instead!! I checked out the NBC website, and they don't even mention the episode in their episode listing, so I'm thinking it wasn't a local decision to pull the show. On my sattelite, it says that it was about a Korean national wanting to defect or something - does that have something to do with it? Does anyone know, or know of a site where I can find out the "dirt"? Thanks! I'm in WW Withdrawal!!!

NBC decided at the last minute not to air the episode because the ratings had been so high for the playoff games. They're planning on airing that episode next week... same with Thursday's lineup. (I work at an NBC owned & operated station.)

They don't suspect the ratings will be as high for the World Series because the Cubs and Red Sox aren't playing.
