‘General Hospital’ January 23, 2020 Episode Delayed, Preempted In The USA
Hey, “General Hospital” fans. We just got word again today, January 23, 2020 that ABC preempted your favorite soap opera General Hospital for a whopping 3rd, straight day to provide LIVE coverage of the President Donald Trump impeachment circus. I mean trial.
We actually weren’t sure if they were going to preempt it in all time zones since today’s coverage ended early enough for it to be shown on the west coast. From what we’re gathering on Twitter and other news outlets is that it was preempted nationwide here in the United States.
Soaps.com said it was preempted today.
However, they did gather up a recap of the episode because I guess it still airs in Canada. Here in Dallas, Texas, it was certainly preempted with the following message: “House Managers Present Arguments On Abuse Of Power.”
They were trying prove that Donald Trump rigged his election in 2016 or something crazy like that. I was like, “Who cares?”
What we’re seeing on Twitter is a lot of fans are very upset that ABC won’t just upload the preempted episodes to their ABC.com website like NBC does with their “Days Of Our Lives” soap opera.
Twitter user C @cpa77 hopped on Twitter today to write, “@GeneralHospital and @finolahughes
This is beyond ridiculous @ABCNetwork Air GH another way. Why isn’t it available on the app? At abcgo? At another time??? Anything. Are you guys all complete morons?” You guys can view that tweet on Twitter by Clicking Here.

After 25 years of watching, I’m tired of dealing with constant preemptions and interruptions, so I’m out.” You guys can view that tweet by Clicking Here. It definitely sounds like ABC has lost Sharon for good with that statement.

Yeah, guys. That was just a few of the many, many tweets that we cherry picked just a few minutes ago on Twitter. The angry comments are coming in droves now that ABC is on its third. consecutive day of not airing General Hospital.
What’s worse is I think ABC might make it a fourth day tomorrow as there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight for this impeachment trial. I’ll tell you what I told you guys yesterday. Just flip on your TV set tomorrow and hope for the best.
We couldn’t find any official statements from any of the ABC affiliate TV stations as to how ABC will handle this matter. So, I guess that means they will just continue to not air General Hospital and piss everybody off. We’ll have to wait and see.
Alright guys. That’s all we’ve got 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.
