It’s Wednesday night and as is the habit, we wait for every new episode of ‘Council of Dads’ to air. Ever since the show's pilot in March and then becoming a regular since April, the NBC family drama has garnered a huge fan following. From the performance of the lead actors to the emotional plot, family dynamics and lots of relationship struggles, the show packs sensitivity, social and family values and is yet quite groundbreaking in its own way.

After ‘This is Us’, NBC fans have found their weeknight comforts in ‘Council of Dads’, so much so, that many have become sentimental. Ergo, when the show announced it was going on a two-week break, they are bound to be upset and we can understand why. Some fans took to Twitter and commented on how badly they are missing the show, which was supposed to air its fifth episode today.

One such fan said: “Waiting for #CouncilofDads like my life depends on it.” While some viewers were aware of the schedule change, others found out when they tuned in at the show's time. “Just saw #CouncilOfDads of dads isn’t on tonight and I’m so upset now”, said one viewer who was surprised to find no new episode of the drama series on NBC as scheduled.

A fan of Sarah Wayne Callies, one of the actors, who plays the role of the female lead, Robin Perry, seems to be missing her favorite celebrity’s performance as well as her live tweets. “@SarahWCallies already missing the #councilofdads live thrusday tweeting! Ready for next week gonna miss my #councilofdads family so bad this week!”

But why did the show go on break? On the account of Red Nose Day, NBC had lined up its specials. Red Nose Day campaign addresses child poverty. The annual fundraiser event aims to raise awareness and funds for children in America and around the world and ensure their safety, health, and education. This year, with the entire nation under coronavirus lockdown, the sixth annual charity event was held virtually and broadcast on NBC, at the same time slot of this nighttime series. The special programming involved stars from some of the best in television, music, and movies.

If you are yet to catch up on the first four episodes of ‘Council of Dads’, they are now available on Hulu and on NBC.

‘Council of Dads’ Episode 5 ‘Tradition’ will air on Thursday, May 28, 8pm/7c, only on NBC.
