Hey, "The Flash" fans. Unfortunately, we've got some very bad news for you guys. It turns out that The CW has decided to just serve up a a rerun of your favorite show, tonight, for some unconfirmed reason. I say unconfirmed, because I do have my speculations that I feel is pretty valid. As most of you now, the big 2016 presidential election coverage is airing, tonight, and every major network will be covering it.

Presidential election coverage is probably the culprit

While CW is not providing coverage of the election, I think they pretty much know there's no point in trying to compete with the election coverage, and are just holding the latest episode 6 of The Flash back until next week.

Getting back to the election coverage, you guys might want to watch that as we're finally going to find out if the new president of the United States will be the Democratic candidate: Hilary Clinton or the Republican candidate: Donald Trump. It should be very interesting.

A rerun of episode 1 is airing tonight

As for The Flash rerun that's airing tonight, CW decided to just run the first episode of season 3, titled: "Flashpoint," where Barry thinks everything is all good and dandy after traveling back through time to save his mother, but quickly finds out that other major changes occurred because of it that must be fixed.

If you're late tuning into the season, that might be an episode you'll want to watch. However, if you're a very devoted fan that's already seen that episode, you might want to direct your focus to something else, tonight.

Episode 6 is confirmed to air next Tuesday

With that being said, I can confirm that the new episode 6, which is titled: "Shade," is indeed scheduled to air next week, Tuesday night, November 15th, 2016 at 7pm central time on the CW, so be sure to mark that date down on you TV calendars.
