Tonight's Jeopardy! was interrupted on WABC during contestant Logan's interview for a presidential speech about Chauvin being found guilty.
EDIT: The rest of the show was preempted and Wheel started just on time.

Ellen was interrupted when tWitch was dancing and did not come back on until Ed Helms was introduced about 17 minutes later. First world problems.

The NFL Draft is next week on ABC (plus others) at 5:00 PT on 4/29 to affect the West seeing J! at the normal time. The next day on Friday the 30th it comes on an hour earlier at 7ET to mess with more stations seeing J! at the regular time.

With the first pick in the 2021 draft the Jacksonville Jaguars select... Trevor Lawrence, quarterback, Clemson

Wednesday the 28th is Presidential Address to Congress and the Nation and the Republican (Sen. Tim Scott of SC) Response from 6-8PT with J! listed for 10:30 after Wheel. That's 60% of J! airings moved in the West next week.

Update for anyone who watches on WABC:
WABC's sports reporter mentioned during Eyewitness News at 6 yesterday that yesterday's episode will air at 7:00 PM tonight (according to the listings, the Saturday rerun will air at 2:00 PM tomorrow). This means that in the event that the NFL Draft runs over, the rescheduled airing of Jeopardy! will either be preempted or joined in progress.
Edit: The draft ended on time, so Friday's Jeopardy! is being shown in its entirety.

Today's episode (semifinal game 1) was messed up by FOX-KDVR in Denver. No sound for first segment, then went to Wheel of Fortune after commercial (which had sound). HIGHLY annoying.

WABC will be preempting Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune this Wednesday, June 2, due to the NYC Democratic Primary Mayoral Debate. My TV listings say that with the Saturday rerun of Jeopardy! airing at 5:00 AM (preceding Wheel's Saturday rerun), on Saturday the 5th, Wednesday through Friday's episodes of Jeopardy! will air on a one-day delay with the June 4 episode airing on the 5th at 7:00 PM (preceding Friday's Wheel).

NBC will air the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines (South) in San Diego for three hours each on Thursday, June 17th (4-7PT) & Friday, June 18th (3-6PT), so somewhere in there some J! viewers will have to be affected.

J! will not be shown on Friday in the Orlando area due to some 5-year anniversary retrospective on the Pulse shooting. Can't just push that to 8 or 9 PM? Ah well.

This will be me, here in Indianapolis we have J! on the NBC affiliate at 7:30, usually do pretty well at avoiding sports preemptions, no March Madness for one, but I guess a west coast U.S. Open does the trick. Usually WTHR is pretty good about airing Wheel/J! on their subchannel when preempted so I'll have fingers crossed!

Madison WI (and probably a few other afternoon NBC affiliates) on Fri 11 June 2021: Djokovic-Nadal at the French Open went WAAAAAYYYY over. Possible 2am makeup (WMTV having apparently learned from the U.S. Capitol sedition)
Hippest of the square, and squarest among the hip...
