The London club went down 4-0 to United away from home at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The most commercially successful league in the world now splits its TV revenues from worldwide deals equally among all clubs.
Both Premier League executive chairman Scudamore and the leading opponents of his plan have each spent the past week trying to swing votes their way ahead of Wednesday's meeting of clubs to debate the controversial plan.
"Clubs agreed to adjourn to allow further discussion", a statement read.

Three people were killed in the firing which included two minors- a 15-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy. Pakistan has violated the ceasefire a number of times in the previous year .
United's injuries gives teammates the opportunity to prove their worth and flourish for the starting side, the Premier League club's manager Jose Mourinho has said.
The clubs chose to delay making a decision on the TV rights money until another meeting in around three weeks' time.
"It had become clear during the meeting that the plan was significantly short of gaining the support of the 14 clubs needed for it to be passed".
The proposal would come into effect for the next overseas TV rights deal, which will run from 2019 to 2022 and is expected to be put out to tender later this year.
