Midterms Scheduling: ‘FBI’ Moves To Sunday As ‘Bachelor In Paradise’, ‘The Voice’ & ‘New Amsterdam’ Pre-Empted For Election Coverage

The upcoming U.S. midterm elections, which are taking place on Tuesday November 8, are set to be one of the most-watched in years due to the heightened nature of politics right now.

As such, three of the major networks – ABC, CBS and NBC – are pre-empting their primetime schedules and running news coverage across the evening, as the balance of the House and Senate is up in the air as well as a number of key Governor races.

This means that shows including the FBI franchise, ABC’s Bachelor In Paradise and The Rookie: Feds and NBC’s The Voice, La Brea and New Amsterdam will be affected.
