Backup Plans: What Every Team Plays When Its Replay Machine Is Down

In case you were too busy coping with the aftermath of Breaking Bad ending (miss u, Badger and Skinny Pete) there was a pretty entertaining Sunday Night Football game that was marred only by the Patriots winning and the replay system going down in Atlanta.  I joked on Twitter that the machine just played Designing Women reruns when it was down and follower @LegKickTKO noted that the Dolphins play Golden Girls.  Both statements are true, and thus I give you the TV shows that play when the other 30 teams’ replay equipment goes down.
