Programming schedule changes on WPTV NewsChannel 5 during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics

Because of NBC's coverage of the Winter Games, some regular NewsChannel 5 programming will be shown at different times, or not shown until the Olympics are over.

Here is the programming shuffle for the Winter Olympics:

The Ellen DeGeneres Show will air at 2 p.m. Monday-Friday from Feb. 10-Feb. 21, except on Thursday, Feb. 20 when it will air at its regular time of 4 p.m.

The Queen Latifah Show will air from 1-2 p.m. on WPTV's secondary channel, the LiveWell Network (Digital channel 5.2 on Comcast), from Feb. 10 to Feb. 21, except on Thursday, Feb. 20 when it will air at its regular time on WPTV.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? is pre-empted Monday-Friday for the entire two weeks of the Olympics.

The Olympic Zone show will be on at 7:30 Monday-Saturday and the game show Let's Ask America will be pre-empted until Monday, Feb. 24.
