Here are some more notes about how frozen precipitation affected the regular programming schedules of local TV stations in the Mobile, Alabama-Pensacola, Florida TV market from Tuesday, January 28th to Thursday, January 30th (such as WFNA-TV's programming schedule for the evening of Tuesday, January 28th):
Tuesday, January 28th:
- WALA-TV cancelled plans to broadcast the syndicated game shows "Jeopardy!" (a new edition) and "Wheel of Fortune" (a new edition) and the network programs "Dads" (a new episode) and "Brooklyn-Nine-Nine" (a past episode) in order to continue broadcasting special local programming about the frozen precipitation from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
- WKRG-TV cancelled their plan to broadcast a syndicated episode of the comedic TV program "The Andy Griffith Show" at 6:30 p.m. in order for their local 6:00 p.m. news program to continue past 6:30 p.m. and end by 7:00 p.m. (the station usually broadcast "The Andy Griffith Show" at 6:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday).
- WKRG-TV pre-empted a (past) network episode of the comedic TV program "Two and a Half Men" with special local programming about the precipitation that lasted from 9:52 p.m. until shortly before 10:52 p.m. since the episode began at 9:52 p.m. and ended by 10:22 p.m. and there was no programming on their live network feed until 10:52 p.m. (the reason the episode started at 9:52 p.m. on the network feed was due to its live programming about the State of the State Address for 2014 ending later than originally planned).
Wednesday, January 29th:
- WEAR-TV cancelled their plan to broadcast the network news program "America This Morning" between 4:00 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. in order to start broadcasting local news programming for the day earlier than usual due to the precipitation.
- WKRG-TV produced more special programming about the precipitation from 5:00 a.m. until shortly before 1:00 p.m. and returning to their regular programming schedule, beginning with the network discussion program "The Talk".
- WPMI-TV broadcast the network news program "Today" for a short time between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. before switching to broadcasting more special local programming about the precipitation for the rest of the morning and shortly after noon until shortly after 1:00 p.m. before returning to the regular programming schedule, beginning with an episode of the dramatic network serial "Days of Our Lives" that had started at 1:00 p.m. on the station's live network feed.
- WEAR-TV broadcast the network news program "Good Morning America" briefly between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. before switching to local programming about the precipitation for the rest of the morning and shortly after noon until sometime between 1:00 p.m. and 1:35 p.m. before returning to their regular programming schedule, beginning with an episode of the dramatic network serial "General Hospital" that had started at 1:00 p.m. on their live network feed.
- WALA-TV's local entertainment and lifestyle program "Studio 10" was part of their continuous programming about the precipitation on Wednesday morning during its regular time period of 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and shortly after 10:00 a.m.
- WALA-TV returned to regular programming sometime between 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m , but would occasionally interrupt their regular programming with shorter reports about the precipitation.
- WPMI-TV broadcast more special local programming about the precipitation between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. instead of two editions of the syndicated courtroom program "Judge Judy" (the edition originally scheduled for 4:00 p.m. was a new edition) before broadcasting more about it between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. since it was their regular weekday time period for local news programming.
Thursday, January 30th:
- WKRG-TV broadcast recordings of the dramatic network serials "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" between 12:37 a.m. and 2:07 a.m. since they got pre-empted by their special programming about the precipitation on the previous calendar day.
