The reason? The show was cast aside for a breaking ABC News special report, covering the final meeting of those part of the January 6 committee investigating the attack on the Capitol and the following insurrection.

ABC News and World News Tonight’s lead anchor David Muir took charge, headlining the special which chronicled the committee’s discussions regarding final decisions and criminal charges.

It is one of the few times one of David’s segments have aired during daytime TV, usually appearing for his usual news show during primetime hours, with World News Tonight having become a ratings juggernaut for the network.

Not only have Amy and T.J. been put on hiatus following the reveal of their relationship, medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton announced she would be stepping off the air as well.
