Programming Alert: Hurricane Sandy Is Going to Make You Watch Reruns Tonight

  • 28comments


Revolution will probably air as planned. BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF THE POWER GOES OUT DURING THE EPISODE?


Just like Disney World closes rides in "inclement weather," TV networks are starting to postpone the original programing they had scheduled for tonight due to Hurricane Sandy's presence on the Eastern Seaboard.

So far, CBS and The CW have both swapped in reruns for the original episodes they had scheduled, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and several late-night programs have canceled today's tapings.

Here's a list of all the shows that will now be airing reruns tonight, as of about 2:15pm Pacific time. We'll update this story as we find out more, as other networks might still make scheduling changes.

2 Broke Girls
90210
The Colbert Report
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Go On (Tomorrow's episode has been bumped for news coverage of the storm.)
Gossip Girl
Hawaii Five-0 (Which will now be replaced with Hurricane Sandy, a one-hour special report anchored by Scott Pelley.)
How I Met Your Mother
Jimmy Kimmel Live
Mike & Molly
Partners

So far, it appears that NBC will air new episodes of The Voice and Revolution as planned. Fox had already scheduled a repeat of The X Factor since the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS WON THE WORLD SERIES IN FOUR GAMES LAST NIGHT YEAHHHHHH and it no longer has any baseball to contend with; it likely won't make any additional scheduling changes, at least for Monday. There's no word yet from ABC, which has new episodes of Dancing With the Stars and Castle on the docket.

If your evening has just opened up a bit, that means you've got time to revisit older shows on DVD or Netflix (assuming you still have internet). What will you be watching during the storm?
