SAN ANTONIO – KSAT is your official Fiesta station and that means we’re covering all the parades but it might also mean your DVR could miss your favorite ABC programming.

Don’t worry though, we’ve got the broadcast dates for shows that will be moved around to accommodate San Antonio’s party with a purpose.

Some of the KSAT Fiesta coverage will pre-empt select ABC programming. Here is when those pre-empted programs will be aired so you can set your DVRs:

  • American Idol from April 4 will be available to stream on KSAT Plus (our free streaming app) and on in real-time for viewers who want to cast votes. It will also be rebroadcast on KSAT on Tuesday, April 5 at 2 a.m.
  • The Good Doctor from April 4 will air Saturday, April 9 at 2 a.m.
  • The View from April 8 will air on Saturday, April 9 at 3 a.m.

You may also be able to watch some of these shows online at
