GH Preempted by Obama’s Final White House Press Conference


ABC Programming Executive Nathan Varni posted to Twitter outlining why “General Hospital” won’t air today. He also had some information on how following GH episodes would be affected.

Obama’s Final Press Conference

ABC will air live President Barack Obama’s final White House press meeting, cutting into GH’s 2:00 p.m. time slot in most markets, said Varni.

Todays episode will move to tomorrow, and all following episodes will also move back by one day.

“Good morning GH fans! Sorry that it’s been a rough month for pre-empts. I just wanted to reach out to let you know today’s episode will be interrupted by President Obama’s final White House press conference in many of our markets. We don’t want you guys to miss out on today’s great episode, so we are officially moving today’s episode to tomorrow and all subsequent episodes back by one day. Also just a reminder the show will also not air Jan 20th. Sincerely apologize for the interruption and hope next week we’ll be able to air a full week’s worth of episodes! Thank you for your loyalty to GH, have a great day! And remember to manually set your DVR for tomorrow if you record the show, sometimes the dvr’s get thrown off by these pre-empts.”
