Hurricane Sandy Causes Some Networks to Flip Monday Primetime to Repeats
CBS and CW in repeats, Fox schedules encore 'X Factor,' ABC schedule unchanged
By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 10/29/2012 5:01:50 PM
CBS will air comedy repeats from 8-10 p.m. with a CBS News special on the storm running from 10-11 p.m., anchored by Scott Pelley. Sister network CW will also air re-runs of both Gossip Girl and 90210.
Fox, which was scheduled to air Game 5 of the World Series, will instead air a repeat episode of The X Factor.
ABC has made no changes in prime to its lineup of Dancing With the Stars and Castle, though a spokeswoman said there would be schedule changes in local markets at the discretion of affiliates.
An NBC spokesperson had not responded to a request for comment at presstime.
I agree it seems the northern United States are a bunch of psychopaths. The south never gets such treatment.

Sorry, don't mean to be insensitive, but when the Gulf Coast or other areas are dealing with a hurricane or other weather emergency, network programming goes on as planned. So apparently, the northeast gets special treatment so that they won't miss an episode of their favorite show.
