Soap fans are not strangers to having their favorite programming interrupted for wild weather reports, natural disasters, and high-speed pursuits—sometimes depending on what part of the country you’re in.

This time around, daytime fans nationwide will encounter preemptions this week due to the live coverage of the House’s first open impeachment hearings for President Donald Trump.

Here’s what we know so far — The first hearing of the House Intelligence Committee’s hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. EST on Wednesday, November 13 and the second is scheduled for Friday, November 15 at 11 a.m. EST.

All major networks including ABC, CBS and NBC will follow the proceedings live. Which means that we should expect interruptions when The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital and Days of our Lives are set to air.

The preemptions come smack dab in the middle of November sweeps month, a time when shows historically ramp up the wow factor to garner more eyeballs, and thus, ratings.

So far, the networks have not announced how they will handle the preempted programming — whether they will be aired at night night as is common, or if the episodes will be bumped forward in their normal time slots.

Daytime viewers are used to drama, so it should be no big deal when our favorite shows are pushed around a little to the left or right, right?

Not so! Many fans, myself one of them, are a little peeved to have to make adjustments. Of course, it makes very little sense on one hand, since we will eventually see the content, one way or another.

But for those of us who don’t like change, tweaking our routine is something we can do without thank you very much!

Then again, there must be millions of fans who don’t mind preemptions one bit. Are you one of them? We’d love to hear your opinion on this topic (along with any survival tips you may have!).

We will keep you updated with any further scheduling news as it becomes available.
