President Obama Sets Primetime Speech on San Bernardino for Sunday

President Barack Obama is set to address the nation Sunday night regarding the shootings that took place in San Bernardino last Wednesday and killed 14 people — likely affecting regularly scheduled network programming in the process.

POTUS “will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism — including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it,” according to a statement at WhiteHouse.gov. “[The president will also] reiterate his firm conviction that ISIL will be destroyed and that the United States must draw upon our values — our unwavering commitment to justice, equality, and freedom — to prevail over terrorist groups that use violence to advance a destructive ideology.”

Potentially affected programs airing at 8/7c include:

Fox‘s Sunday lineup (starting with The Simpsons and Brooklyn Nine-Nine) will be pushed back 15 minutes, the expected length of Obama’s speech.

ABC‘s Sunday lineup (starting with Once Upon a Time‘s fall finale) will be pushed back 15 minutes, the expected length of Obama’s speech.

CBS will cut away from a two-hour 60 Minutes installment, which starts at 7 pm. NBC (Sunday Night Football kicks off at 8:30) has yet to announce any scheduling changes.

TVLine will update this URL with each network’s coverage plan/possible preemptions or delays, as they are determined.
