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


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?

My power was out for most of last night and turned on just in time for the end of Revolution. Oh, the irony.

Okay, I have to admit: That actually made me laugh out loud. :-)

The Halloween episode of Hawaii Five-O that was supposed to air on Monday will air Nov. 5th (according to the H5O Facebook page).

You know what Jen, if you were making a Revolution / Power goes out joke it was entirely lost on me until now and I'm sorry. I get it!!

Welp. It's Spectacular Spider-man DVDs for me.

I figured that was why HIMYM was a repeat of the season opener. Oh well. At least Monday Night Football isn't a repeat.

They've already decided not to show Go On tomorrow? Ugh. Not only am I not going to be able to sleep much with the strong winds knocking on my window, but the storm is also making network executives stupid and inconveniencing my TV viewing.

If anything, I would have thought the storm is causing more people to stay indoors, in which case ratings may improve because of the storm.

Not if they don't have any power. Power outages tend to happen during really bad storms, especially hurricanes.

Ah, yes, that is my mistake. I seemed to have attributed the weather in my area -- very strong winds, enough to persuade folks to stay indoors but maybe not enough to cause power outages -- as the norm, which of course isn't true. Many places have it much worse. Stupid me.

Balls. BALLS, I tell you!



Fallon's even doing his live show without an audience!

NBC is probably keeping it just for ratings boost. Damn you, Sandy!

The eastern seaboard being out of power might throw a wrench in that theory.

There wasn't a new episode of HIMYM last week either, it's almost like they don't want me to watch it.

Damn you Sandy! No HIMYM or 2 Broke Girls?? At least Revolution might do better in the ratings without new Hawaii Five-0 as competition.

This storm better be hella awesome. If it's going to inconvenience us this much, there better be some toppled skyscrapers and beached whales to show for it.

I feel horrible for laughing at that

Doesn't affect me, since the only new show I was planning to watch was Revolution. Besides that, I'll be watching some shows on DVD (though I'm not sure specifically what I'll be watching).
