The major networks — ABC, NBC and CBS — have already said they will only devote one hour of coverage to the RNC in prime time.

“What you hope viewers take away is emotion. Emotion is what grabs people and makes it memorable.”
That’s Don Mischer, who produced the DNC in Boston in 2004.
Consistent is not the same as predictable. Predictable is your enemy.
Emotion is your goal, every time I listen.
