  • Really. You think tomorrow’s news will be any different? 1 hour is not going to make a difference

  • And you intentionally choose an episode of Nina vs. Michael / Willow.
  • i wish abc would just air it online and early morning for reg tv i watch all my tv shows online thru my att log in

Special Report Breaks In

At 1:22 p.m. President Biden broke in about what was going on with the Israeli War. This is what was airing instead of General Hospital. It seems to be the only show that was affected today so far at least. Daily Blast Live airs after GH and it is unknown if it will run into it or not.

Were you upset that it wasn’t a new episode of GH today? Sound off in the comments and catch new episodes on weekdays on ABC at 1 p.m. CST. You can catch the episode that was supposed to air today when it airs tomorrow instead. It appears that the new episode may have aired in Canada today.
