NBC knows you’re watching Game 7 of the World Series tonight, so the highest-rated broadcaster is throwing in the towel for two-thirds of Wednesday’s primetime.
The Bob Greenblatt-led network is yanking its planned original episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” and “Chicago PD” (pictured above), and now plans to air reruns of those shows instead.
An all-new episode of “The Blacklist” will still air at 8 p.m., so cheer up, James Spader diehards.
Here is the night’s new lineup:
8-9 p.m. – “The Blacklist” (original)
9-10 p.m. – “Law & Order: SVU” (encore)
10-11 p.m. – “Chicago PD” (encore)
The deciding Game 7 of the World Series starts tonight at 8:20 p.m. ET on Fox. Either the Houston Astros or Los Angeles Dodgers will take home the Commissioner’s Trophy this evening.
