in place of Bull
after the speech.

‘ “The Right Thing to Do” episode – the series’ first original since the December 6 Christmas episode – will air at 10 PM Eastern, 9 PM Central, and twice back-to-back Pacific starting at 9 PM.
An encore airing of new game show The Wall
will be joined in progress after the president’s address, which is expected to run 40 minutes
, and the Chicago Fire
episode originally scheduled for 10 PM January 10 will air a week later, on January 17. Eastern
