‘General Hospital’ January 22, 2020 Episode Delayed, Preempted In The USA
Hey, “General Hospital” fans. We are back to talk to you guys about some very bad news. It turns out that this very high profile President Donald Trump Impeachment trial has made its way back into your lives ,once again, by totally interrupting your beloved General Hospital soap opera.
It’s confirmed that ABC did indeed preempt/delay General Hospital today, January 22, 2020 to air LIVE coverage of the impeachment trials.
And from what we gathered from various fans on Twitter, they did this same thing yesterday, January 21, 2020. As of right now, we weren’t able to collect any official announcements from any of the ABC affiliate stations regarding how ABC will handle this issue, but it sounds like they’ll be playing a cat and mouse game like CBS is doing with their “Young And The Restless” and “Bold And The Beautiful”soap operas.
They’re promising to air them the next day, and then just preempting them again to cover the impeachment trials.
As for the impeachment trials, it appears that everyone was just giving opening statements. The messages we saw on our TV screen read like this, “House Managers Deliver Opening Statements” and “Rep. Adam Schiff Delivers Opening Arguments.”
We did get confirmation from a lot of angry fans on Twitter that General Hospital did get preempted in their area.

I have to admit it’s always fun to read how angry these fans can get over missing their soap operas. I would tell you guys to probably expect more of this from ABC, especially if the impeachment coverage lasted as long as it did today.
If the impeachment trials start up again tomorrow morning or in the afternoon, you can pretty much bet ABC will cover it and preempt General Hospital again. All we can tell you is just to turn on your TV tomorrow and hope for the best.
Alright guys. That’s all we have for this latest “General Hospital” TV show report, but definitely stay tuned for more.
General Hospital airs every Monday through Friday at 1 pm central standard time on ABC.
