WKYC adds "Blacklist" replay

By Rich Heldenfels Published: May 14, 2014

The season finale of "The Blacklist" -- and a rip-roaring finale it is -- will air at 3 p.m. today on WKYC (Channel 3). "Family Feud" is pre-empted. The station announcement is here.

The weather coverage on Monday night disrupted local prime-time telecast something fierce, with stations taking different paths to resolve the problem. For example, WEWS (Channel 5) used a split screen dominated by its weather reporting, but with a smaller share of the screen showing "Dancing With the Stars" (sans music or dialogue), WJW pushed "Bones" and "24: Live Another Day" to Tuesday night beginning at 11 p.m.; although my onscreen guide did not list the rescheduling, I just set the recording timer for the 11 p.m. show and extended it a couple of hours.

WKYC replayed its prime-time stuff Monday beginning at about 10:30 p.m., "The Voice" followed by "The Blackist," which put "The Blacklist" on at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday; again, the onscreen grids did not show this, but I caught "The Blacklist" by setting the recorder for the listed "Tonight Show" and "Late Show." And, through all this, I figured I could catch up with what I missed either online or On Demand.

BUT some folks either missed out or could not program their DVRs properly. so WKYC worked out a deal with NBC (which had to approve any replays) for today's showing.
