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.
