The 'Lights is a daily morning sports highlights program on NBC Sports Network that launched in August 2012. The Lights is different from ESPN's SportsCenter because it is presented as repeating 20-minute segments in which scores and replays from the previous day's games are shown with David Diamante acting as the unseen anchor. Split-screen coverage includes highlights on one side while the screen's other side shows comments, like interviews or post-game press conferences, pertaining to the highlights. Originally for 2 hours from 7-9 AM., the program has since expanded to 3 hours from 6-9 AM.[1][1]

The program was placed on hiatus during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and was scheduled to be re-tooled to re-air in late August 2013. It later was removed from the schedule entirely.[2] Currently, a loop of fitness programming under NBC Universal's digital Radius brand fills the timeslot, airing six times in three hours.
