CBS is tweaking its Tuesday schedule in the wake of the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict. A network rep confirms that original episodes of NCIS, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted will now be replaced by reruns.
There’s no word if ABC, NBC and Fox will be making any scheduling changes.
President Biden and Vice President Harris are expected to address the nation about the verdict at some point Tuesday evening.
On Tuesday afternoon, Minneapolis police officer Chauvin was found guilty of the May 25, 2020 murder of George Floyd. Read by Judge Peter A. Cahill, the jury found Chauvin guilty on all three counts, including second- and third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.
