Dancing with the Stars, Castle preempted Monday


Dear Viewer,

Thank you for contacting Channel 2 WSB-TV. We appreciate your dissatisfaction with the preemption of Dancing with the Stars and Castle and felt that you deserved to know the reason behind it.

This special partnership with ESPN allowed Channel 2 to pick up the Atlanta Falcons/Jets game and broadcast it to all Atlanta area viewers on local over-the-air television, free of charge.

This allows every local fan with a TV to receive the telecast and to cheer for their home team on the big stage of Monday Night Football.

Unfortunately, this means that Monday night’s ABC shows, Dancing with the Stars and Castle, have been rescheduled to the following time slots so you can record them and watch at your convenience.

  • Dancing with the Stars runs Tuesday, October 8th at 1:35am-3:35am EDT
  • Castle runs Wednesday, October 9th at 2:05am-3:05am EDT.

We apologize for inconveniencing you and hope that you enjoy the Falcons game.

Alternatively, you can link to full free episodes of your favorite ABC shows at wsbtv.com available after the shows have aired on the network.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you enjoy watching WSB TV.

Art Rogers

Director of Programming
