Last night's episode of "Criminal Minds" was preempted by severe weather coverage on WRAL, and today, fans are asking how they can see the episode.
WRAL posted this notice on their website today, explaining the tough decisions they have to make when severe weather happens in primetime. And we get it. But I'm a little slow today and needed it spelled out for me, so I hounded some folks at WRAL: "Will 'Criminal Minds' air again for those who missed it?" The answer is no.
In the article, WRAL General Manager Steve Hammel explains the station's options in those situations. One of the options: "We can move it to our second channel, WRAL2, and air it in the time period it is scheduled to air...when viewers want to see it. However, less than half of the households have access to the channel either via cable (channel 106) or off an antenna."
Apparently, that is what they did.
And because of CBS rules, they can't show it again. Adding to the frustration, CBS.com does not show full episodes of "Criminal Minds," and none are available on Hulu.
So if you missed it, be on the look out for a rerun. Sorry.
