President Joe Biden will deliver his first primetime address this Thursday night, to discuss the nearly year-old coronavirus pandemic and the state of the vaccination rollout.
What regular scheduled primetime broadcast programs will be preempted as a result? TVLine sent inquiries to the Big 4 broadcasters who typically might cover such a newsworthy address.
ABC — which has the long-awaited (and already once-delayed) returns of #TGIT dramas Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy and A Million Little Things on tap for this Thursday night — at this time is planning to stick with that plan, and possibly break in with newsy updates and then return to programming in progress.
CBS (which is all-new this Thursday), Fox (also all-new) and NBC (which only has a fresh Superstore episode on the schedule) have not yet gotten back to us with their coverage plans. Follow us on the Twitter or check back later for updates!
