UPDATED with NBC and ABC programming: Facing what promises to be a hugely watched World Series Game 7 between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros tonight on Fox, two rival networks are tweaking their schedules.
CBS has opted to air repeats of SEAL Team in the 9 PM and 10 PM hours, preempting original episodes of SEAL Team at 9 PM and Criminal Minds at 10 PM. There is no change to Survivor, which airs a regularly scheduled new episode in its regular 8 PM timeslot.
In the 9 PM hour, CBS will broadcast SEAL Team’s “Other Lives” episode, which originally aired on October 4, and “Boarding Party” at 10 PM, which previously aired on October 11.
In addition, NBC will air repeats of Law & Order: SVU at 9 PM and Chicago P.D. at 10 PM. The Blacklist will stay with an original episode in its 8 PM timeslot.
ABC is staying the course, confirming it will make no changes in tonight’s primetime schedule. An original episode of The Goldbergs airs 8 PM, followed by Speechless at 8:30 PM, Modern Family at 9 PM, American Housewife at 9:30 PM and Designated Survivor at 10 PM.
Down 3-2 in the series, the Los Angeles Dodgers battled back to top the Houston Astros 3-1 Tuesday night, forcing tonight’s Game 7. Last night’s Game 6 scored a 15.1/26 in metered market results for Fox — the best this year’s Fall Classic has done in early numbers and the best any Game 6 has done since 2009.
