Actors turned candidates don’t get reruns

If Fred Thompson decides to put his acting career on hold and run for President at least one television network will put remove reruns of shows where he appears.

NBC says it will not schedule any of the 100-plus episodes of “Law & Order” which feature appearances by Thompson.

Networks did the same thing when Ronald Reagan ran for President in 1980.
