NBC pulled some of its original programming from the prime-time lineup as the broadcast networks brace for competition from tonight’s Game 7 of the World Series on Fox. The moves follow a similar programming tweak by CBS, as we reported separately.
NBC is pulling scheduled original episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” and “Chicago PD” that had been scheduled to air tonight. The original installment of “The Blacklist” set for the 8 p.m. slot will air tonight as originally scheduled.
NBC will air a repeat episode of “SVU’s” Season 19 premiere, “Gone Fishin’,” tonight at 9 p.m., followed by a repeat of the “Chicago PD” episode “Reform” at 10 p.m.
