Haiti Telethon & Resulting TV Schedule Changes
Buddy TV reports that George Clooney is helping to organize a telethon to benefit the victims of the truly devastating earthquake in Haiti:
Today MTV announced that not only will it air on their network, but also VH1, HBO, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and the CW. The telethon will air Friday, January 22 at 8pm on all networks. Celebrities are still being lined up, but it’s sure to be a star-studded event to raise plenty of money for the victims.
Hopefully this telethon will be a great success, and provide much-needed aid.
Of course, this will result in some scheduling changes on these networks. The Dollhouse finale was originally scheduled for that date, and has now been pushed forward another week, to January 29th at 8/7c. Similarly, Smallville’s return from hiatus, originally planned for January 22nd at 8/7c, will be postponed a week. I will report on further changes as relevant.
