If you live in the Chicago area you're probably expecting to tune into the Wednesday, April 8 episode of ABC's "General Hospital" today in its regularly scheduled 3:00 PM time period (nationally it airs at 2:00 PM, ET/1:00 PM, PT). Unfortunately, due to WLS-TV/ABC7's coverage of the Chicago Cubs baseball game, which begins at 1:00 PM, the daytime drama series will instead be broadcast in the early morning hours on Thursday, April 9, 2015 beginning at 2:10 AM.
As previously reported, seven of the eight ABC Owned Television (OTV) stations - WABC in New York, KABC in Los Angeles, WLS in Chicago, WPVI in Philadelphia, KGO in San Francisco, KTRK in Houston, WTVD in Raleigh-Durham - along with KSAT in San Antonio will be moving "General Hospital" back to its former time period of 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM CT/PT beginning Monday, September 8.
Seven of the eight ABC Owned and Operated (O&O) television stations will be returning "General Hospital" back to its 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT slot beginning Monday, September 8, the network confirmed today. Those stations include WABC in New York, KABC in Los Angeles, WLS in Chicago, WPVI in Philadelphia, KGO in San Francisco, KTRK in Houston, WTVD in Raleigh-Durham and KSAT in San Antonio, which is the sole non-ABC O&O station making the change.
