Millions of viewers will be tuning in to Game 7 of the World Series between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs Wednesday night. The final matchup airs on Fox with coverage beginning at 8/7c.

With that in mind, other networks are throwing in the towel and are pre-empting new programming against the historic sporting event.

On NBC, new episodes of Blindspot, Law & Order: SVU and Chicago P.D. are being bumped. Blindspot and SVU will be replaced with SVU reruns, while Chicago P.D. will air an episode from earlier in the season.

On CBS, Criminal Minds will rebroadcast an episode from last season, though Survivor and Code Black are airing as planned on CBS.

On ABC, the live CMA Awards are also airing as planned, as is Wednesday's biggest show on cable, American Horror Story.

And, obviously, Fox's Lethal Weapon and Empire are off tonight, in favor of the game itself.

On Tuesday night, when Game 6 was played, CBS aired reruns of NCIS and Bull in place of scheduled new episodes with little advance warning, to the consternation of several fans.

The TV schedule will return to normal on Thursday, with either Chicago or Cleveland having notched a historic win the night before.

Game 7 of the World Series starts at 8/7c on Fox.
