Over the past several weeks on NBC, “The Night Shift” has certainly shifted into a reliable presence on the schedule. New episodes have aired in steady fashion, and that is certainly something that we appreciate as we dive back into the story of some of these characters.
Unfortunately, there is a small bump in the road coming on NBC Wednesday night in the form of a preemption. Why is that? Think politics. The Republican National Convention is going to be coming on the air tonight, and that has been the pattern for most of the week. While it may be frustrating for viewers, we understand why given that election coverage is something that has been a part of this country for generations, and it also just so happens to be a ratings draw.
When the show does return, it’s going to be with an explosive hour of television entitled “Unexpected” that could prove to have some far-reaching consequences. If you haven’t seen either the promo or the synopsis below, they offer up a good idea as to what is coming:
“When a bomb explodes outside the hospital, TC (Eoin Macken), Topher (Ken Leung) and Drew (Brendan Fehr) are forced to make the tough decision to stay and treat the injured or evacuate and begin transfers to nearby hospitals. Everything changes when TC suddenly realizes he may know the person responsible for the explosion. While the team works feverishly to tend to the wounded, the nurses go on strike just when the hospital needs them the most. Meanwhile, throughout the intense night shift, Shannon (Tanaya Beatty) and Paul (Robert Bailey, Jr.) attempt to confront each other about something personal.”
