Networks are reshuffling their line-ups as the historic Game 7 of the World Series airs Wednesday night.

Fox’s regular programming has the night off as they’ll be airing the final game between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians. 

NBC confirmed that they’ll be shifting plans for BlindspotLaw & Order: SVU, and Chicago P.D. and airing reruns instead of the originally planned new episodes. Last week, NBC’s homerun hit This Is Us took on the first game in the World Series and still fared well in ratings, but tonight’s schedule was scratched in anticipation of the epic finish of the baseball season.

CBS will swap its new Criminal Minds episode for a repeat, but new episodes of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X and Code Black will air at their usual times.

The Country Music Association Awards will be live on ABC tonight as previously scheduled, and the CW has no plans to alter their lineup either.

Game 7 begins at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
