While Sandy may be making her way up the East Coast at the moment, CBS is making sure the hurricane doesn't cause their East Coast viewers to miss their Monday night line-up. The network has decided to air reruns tonight, rather than the previously scheduled new episodes of their comedies and Hawaii Five-0.
CBS originally had new episodes of How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Partners, Mike & Molly and Hawaii Five-0 set to air tonight during their three-hour primetime block, however due to the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, who from what I hear, has already knocked down trees and caused power outages in some areas, the network has opted to show reruns tonight. EW confirmed this, stating that CBS is pushing the schedule off by one week due to the storm. The CW is doing the same, with 90210 and Gossip Girl tonight, so those hoping to catch new episodes of the network's dramas will either be disappointed (if they have power and functioning cable) or relieved to know they haven't missed anything, if they're among those without power.
ABC is set to air a new episode of Castle and presumably Dancing with the Stars as scheduled. We haven't heard of any scheduling changes from NBC so unless we post an update stating otherwise, a new episode of The Voice and Revolution will air as planned.
It's annoying when weather causes changes to the TV schedule, but given the varying degrees of devastation a hurricane can cause, we can only hope that a bit of primetime rescheduling is the worst inconvenience people experience while this storm passes through. To all those in Sandy's path, stay safe and dry!
