The State of the Union Is Bumping This Is Us and These Other Shows

Find out how your favorite Tuesday shows are affected

Liam Mathews

President Donald Trump is giving his first State of the Union address Tuesday night, which means the networks' regular programming will be disrupted to accommodate coverage of the speech. He'll be blaming a lot on the Democrats, but messing up your DVR is his fault alone. CBS, ABC and NBC will be covering Trump's speech and the Democratic response from 9 to 11 p.m. ET/6 to 8 p.m. PT, while Fox's coverage ends a half-hour earlier.

Here's how that will change Tuesday's programming on each of the networks Tuesday night.

CBS will air a greatest Super Bowl commercials special in the hour of primetime not devoted to the speech (check your local listings on the West Coast). That means that there's no NCIS, Bull or NCIS: New Orleans.

ABC will be airing two new episodes of Fresh off the Boat at 8/7c/9m. The Middle, black-ish, Modern Family and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World are off.

A new Ellen's Game of Games will air at 8/7c/9m, with a rerun of The Wall at 9 p.m. on the West Coast.This Is Us and Chicago Med are off (you're going to have to wait until after the Super Bowl to find out how Jack died on This Is Us).

It's a rerun of Lethal Weapon at 8/7c/8:30m. LA to Vegas and The Mick are off.

If you want to watch the State of the Union online, head over here to find out how. If you want to skip it entirely and watch some old episodes of The Office on Netflix for the 18th time, that's fine, too.
