According to the programming guides for WALA-TV from Zap2it, TV Guide, and TitanTV, the station had planned on broadcasting the syndicated game show "Wheel of Fortune" at 1:30 a.m.* on Thursday, October 24th and Friday, October 25th due to plans to broadcast live network programming about the World Series from the FOX Broadcasting Company during the time period they normally used for broadcasting new editions of "Wheel of Fortune" from Monday through Friday (6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.).
If the World Series were to continue after Sunday, October 27th, and end on either Monday, October 28th, Wednesday, October 30th, or Thursday, October 31st, the station would still broadcast live network programming about the series during their regular time period for broadcasting a new edition of "Wheel of Fortune" before doing so later at 1:30 a.m (according to the programming guide from Zap2it).
*The station usually broadcast the comedic syndicated program "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" between 1:30 a.m. and 2:00 a.m.. from Tuesday through Saturday
