Hurricane Sandy continues to wreak havoc on TV. Following a Monday night where CBS and the CW aired reruns due to coverage of the East Coast storm, NBC and ABC announced that Tuesday night will bump some of their scheduled new episodes to cover the hurricane.


Both NBC and ABC will air one-hour specials on Hurricane Sandy at 10pm, bumping previously scheduled episodes of Go On and The New Normal on NBC and Private Practice on ABC. The shows have yet to be rescheduled.

It will be particularly unusual for NBC to reschedule The New Normal as it was a Halloween-themed episode. Monday's preempted Hawaii Five-0 was also a Halloween episode. Now it seems both episodes will air well after Halloween.

This makes 13 shows that have been preempted due to Hurricane Sandy: 90210, Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, Partners, Mike and Molly, Hawaii Five-0, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Private Practice, Go On and The New Normal.
