'Eastwick' to be pre-empted for Janet Jackson
ABC is making more schedule shifts, finding a home for new reality competish “Let’s Dance” and making room later this month for a news interview with Janet Jackson.According to Alphabet insiders, “Eastwick” will be pre-empted on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 10 p.m. in favor of ABC News’ Jackson sit-down. “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts is interviewing the pop star, who will likely spend much of the hour talking about her late brother, Michael. Specifics are thin so far – as Roberts hasn’t yet sat down with Jackson – but an official announcement is expected to come on Thursday. ABC is also set to announce that its five-episode series “Let’s Dance,” which features celebs re-enacting well-known dance routines – will launch on Monday, Nov. 23 at 9:30 p.m. The 90-minute bow comes following “Dancing With the Stars,” which will hold its performance final that night. Show will continue to air on Mondays at 9 p.m.
