Programming note: Major League Baseball on WBAY-TV
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - ABC is making a switch to programming for the Major League Baseball playoffs this week. “General Hospital,” “GMA3” and “Dr. Phil” will not air during wild card series coverage. Games start Tuesday:
- Tuesday, Sept. 29: Houston Astros at Minnesota Twins
- Wednesday, Sept. 30: Miami Marlins at Chicago Cubs
- Thursday, Oct. 1: Miami Marlins at Chicago Cubs
- Friday, Oct. 2 (if necessary): To be determined
“General Hospital” fans won’t miss new episodes because the ABC network is pre-empting its own programming and will hold new episodes for when the show returns. ABC airs repeats of “General Hospital” on Fridays.
New episodes of “Dr. Phil,” which is a syndicated program, will be carried on WBAY-TV 2 at 2:05 A.M. on Tuesday and Thursday and 2:35 A.M. on Wednesday. It airs later Wednesday because NBA basketball playoffs in primetime pushes programming back at least 30 minutes (or later if the game runs long). Set your DVR recording manually and allow extra time in case of over-runs.
