Olympic preemptions: Are ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘The Blacklist,’ ‘Hart of Dixie’ new tonight?
The Olympics are still going strong, and if you are someone hoping to find a few other things here and there to watch on TV, this really just means one thing to you: You’re going to be waiting a little while longer for some of your favorites to be coming back here.
Let’s start off here by sharing all of the network shows that are still in repeats: “How I Met Your Mother,” “2 Broke Girls,” and the rest of the CBS comedy lineup are still going to be taking the week off before returning to the air a little later on next week. (“Intelligence,” meanwhile, is new.) NBC, meanwhile, has the Olympics, which means that there will be none of “The Blacklist” or “The Voice” until they each come back on the air next week.
As for ABC, “Castle” is returning after a brief hiatus Monday night to go alongside “The Bachelor,” and fans of the Fox lineup should know that both “The Following” and “Almost Human” are going to be around with more new episodes. (We’ll have a full review of “Almost Human” up tonight after it airs!)
The CW will have new programming, but it will be “Star-Crossed” along with “Beauty and the Beast.” Where is “Hart of Dixie”? The show is moving to Fridays, and will launch there on March 21.
As for the realm of cable, there is really not going to be that much that is different. Regardless of if you like “Swamp People” or “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” or “Teen Wolf” or “Bad Ink,” the vast majority of cable schedules are going to be continually unaffected by games. The thinking for many cable networks is that if you can afford them, then you are more likely to have a DVR.
