ROANOKE, Va. – Planning to watch "Law and Order: SVU" Thursday night on WSLS 10? Unfortunately, you won't be able to.

Beginning at 7:30 p.m., WSLS 10 will be airing the Washington Redskins first preseason game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

The reason NFL preseason football is airing and not "Law and Order: SVU" is because WSLS 10 has an agreement to air certain Redskins preseasons games in the Roanoke-Lynchburg television market.

Thursday marks the first time this August that multiple NBC primetime shows will be rescheduled for the first of the Redskins' four preseason games in the 2018 NFL season.

Season 19, episode 18 of "Law and Order: SVU," which originally aired on April 11, and was slated to run again Thursday night, will now air Saturday at 2 a.m.

The other two primetime shows that are being rescheduled are "America's Got Talent" and "Trial and Error."

Thursday night's episode of "America's Got Talent" will be shown on WSLS 10 at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Thursday night's two new episodes of "Trial and Error" will be shown back-to-back on WSLS 10 beginning at 2 a.m. Friday.

The three new episodes will be available on NBC.com on Friday morning.

Thursday night's episode of "Inside Edition" will also not air. However, it will not be reaired.
