If even 2 of them go to decisions (and maybe if just one does), definitely. You figure such a fight from start to finish, entrances and post-fight stuff included, usually goes a good 20-25 minutes, and even if that other fight ended in a quick KO it still takes at least 10 minutes of TV time.

As usual, it seems now, we're starting late. No word yet on when exactly the first fight will start, but it'll probably be McKee-Volkmann.
Tonight would be a good night to have multiple TVs/PIP between UFC, BCS Bowls and the Winter Classic all coming up.

Update: First fight start ET-7:40 PM ET.

Update 2: First fight will start at about that time. Fighters now headed to cage.

Round 1 - Referee Steve Mazzagatti oversees the evening's first fight. Volkmann moves forward in a side-to-side fashion. McKee misses a few early lead right hooks. Traded punches, and MKee lands flush. Straight left for McKee as Volkmann tries to rush in for a takedown. McKee backs away and side-kicks to the body. Volkmann moving forward, but McKee countering well. McKee shots in, but Volkmann stands him up. Stalemate, and the break. McKee shoots in again. He drives Volkmann to a knee and delivers a left hand to the face. Neither fighter gains an advantage in the clinch, and they break. Halfway in. Volkmann drops for a double. He ties up the knees and puts McKee on his back. Half-mount for Volkmann. McKee crosses his legs to prevent a pass. As Volkmann tries to transition, McKee sweeps to top, and they stand. Very slow pace so far. McKee drives a knee to the body while he presses against the cage. Volkmann circles off and tries to change levels, to no avail. Less than a mnute. McKee lands a straight left. They circle to end the round. MMAjunkie.com gives the first to Volkmann, 10-9, based on the one takedown, though there was very little to score.

I bought into Mckee's wrestling pedigree even though Volkmann is a great wrestler himself.

Round 2 - Traded punches to start. McKee lands a nice right hand in a two-punch combo. Volkmann telegraphs a shot and gets caught with a punch. McKee shoots from distance, but Volkmann sprawls out well and slips around to north-south. He continue to spin until he gets a rear half-mount. Volkmann steps over with the left leg and has both hooks. He rolls to his own back and holds McKee in front. He wraps the right arm around the chin for the rear-naked choke. McKee does a good job of keeping his chine ticked. Volkmann releases, and McKee looks to control the wrists in defense. Volkmann puts the right arm around the chin again. McKee's chin tight to his chest as Volkmann tries to adjust. Volkmann switches to the left and back to the right. McKee throws a few punches behind him. The left hand punches land to Volkmann's face, but he's not moving. McKee looking up at the monitors to locate Volkmann's head while he fires punches. McKee spins into Volkmann's guard in the final seconds, and the round ends there. MMAjunkie.com gives the round to Volkmann, 10-9.
