It’s the start of November, and baseball — and TV — fans know what that means: the World Series, and your favorite Fox shows have taken a week or two off as a result.
This year, the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves are facing off in the best-of-seven series, with the first four games scheduled for Tuesday, October 26, Wednesday, October 27, Friday, October 29, Saturday, October 30. So far, two of the “if necessary” games — Sunday, October 31, Tuesday, November 2, and Wednesday, November 3 — have been “needed.” Each night, coverage takes over Fox in the primetime.
Below, we’ve listed which nights you definitely won’t be getting new episodes of your favorite Fox shows and which night you might miss out.
Definitely Not On
On Tuesday, October 26, fans missed out on episodes of The Resident and Our Kind of People. On Wednesday, October 27, baseball took over instead of The Masked Singer and Alter Ego. Friday nights usually belong to WWE’s Friday Night Smackdown, while Saturdays usually feature Fox sports coverage.
Since the World Series went past Game 4, viewers didn’t see Animation Domination — The Simpsons, The Great North, Bob’s Burgers, and Family Guy — on Halloween night.
Since there will be a Game 6 on Tuesday, November 2, there won’t be a new episode of The Resident or a Masked Singer special counting down the show’s greatest performances. (Our Kind of People‘s next new episode is set for November 9.)
Might Not Be On
If the World Series goes to Game 7 on Wednesday, November 3, there won’t be a new, Thanksgiving-themed Masked Singer or a new Alter Ego.
