WSB-TV has made a last-second change to its 2017-18 daytime line up, moving a viral video show “Right This Minute” to 10 a.m. weekdays, replacing “The Doctors.”

The medical advice show, which debuted in 2008, will now air starting September 11 at 2:05 a.m., where “Right This Minute” was scheduled the past year. Ratings for “The Doctors” have slipped over the past year, pulling in fewer viewers than “Live With Kelly and Ryan” at 9 a.m. or “The View” at 11 a.m. (“Doctors” fans who like to sleep at night and have DVRs can simply tape the episodes and watch it later.)

“Right This Minute,” which has been running overnight on WSB-TV since 2014, features five hosts discussing the latest hot viral videos.

Cox Media Group, owner of WSB-TV, has an ownership stake in “Right This Minute,” which officially launched in 2011. Produced by MagicDust Television, “Right This Minute” also includes partners Raycom Media and the E.W. Scripps Company. 

WSB-TV and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution are both part of Cox Media Group.
