'This Is Us' Finale Delayed By A Week For Trump Speech

Nothing is safe anymore ... except cable.

Your regularly scheduled hour of weekly sobbing, aka NBC’s “This Is Us,” has been delayed because apparently nothing is sacred anymore and it’s time for President Donald Trump to give another speech. 

The season finale of the acclaimed series, which was was originally intended to air March 7, will now air March 14 at 9/8c, according to Deadline. Broadcast networks are adjusting scheduling to accommodate Trump’s first address of a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 9 p.m,, delaying all programming on that night forward by one week. 

The premiere of John Lithgow’s new comedy series “Trial & Error” will also be pushed back. The “Making a Murderer”–style mockumentary sitcom will now air after the “This Is Us” finale with two back-to-back episodes. 

“This Is Us” fans are an emotional bunch, so naturally they didn’t take too kindly to the news that they’d have to wait another week to drool over Milo Ventimiglia. 

TV fans have been impacted by Trump already this season, when the returns of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” and the premiere of “Scandal,” were all delayed due to a “20/20” pre-inauguration special about the Trump family.
