The advice comes after the “Bachelorette” fans were sent into a panic in June, when ABC cut off of the dating series, viewers will Trump the historic meeting of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
In that incident, the official Twitter of the reality series let fans know that they would be able to watch the episode “in its entirety” after “Special Report” but that is no help to viewers who had their Dvr’s. Viewers who are not watching in real time were disappointed when their recordings were cut off.
