ABC, CBS and NBC don't need Google to be found or sell advertising as most of us publishers do. Moreover, these networks are not interested in sharing advertising money in the publishing of their content – nor should they.
By blocking Google they are removing the potential of a middle man and any revenue cutting maneuver Google might have plans for.
Looks like a smart business move by the TV networks to me.
