Don’t panic when you see that GENERAL HOSPITAL is a rerun on Monday, Aug. 21. They're just taking a day off from the never ending drama for the first total solar eclipse in almost four decades!
Because GH airs in different time slots in different areas across the country, ABC has opted to preempt the soap on Monday so fans won’t feel like they’re missing out if their local network's news coverage of the eclipse runs in the same slot where GH usually does. So if you do find the show airing in your location, don’t be surprised when you find it all looks a bit familiar. That’s because they’ll be running the episode from July 25 where Maxie came home to surprise Nathan, a missing Spencer finally turned up safe and sound, and Sam confronted Sonny at the distillery and shot him, leaving the mobster for dead!

The regular drama in Port Charles will resume on Tuesday, Aug. 22, so you can find out what Franco wants from Ava, if Anna can discover what is really going on with Valentin and Spencer's diamond, and so much more!
Over on CBS, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS will be preempted on that day and THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will be airing in its time slot at 12:30 p.m. ET with CBS' news coverage of the eclipse beginning at 1 p.m. ET. NBC is leaving it up to their local affiliates whether or not they want to air DAYS OF OUR LIVES or news coverage, so depending on where you live, you may be able to watch DAYS on TV or you may have to seek it out online or on demand.
You can also enjoy the first total solar eclipse in almost four decades, but please make sure to be careful! Get all the details about when, where, and how to watch in this comprehensive guide!
