TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays' playoff push has led CBC to delay the premiere of "Kim's Convenience."

The much buzzed about sitcom about a Korean-Canadian family was slated to debut on Tuesday night, at the same time the Jays are now scheduled to play the Baltimore Orioles in the American League wild-card game.

The CBC is postponing the series premiere by a week to avoid conflict with the win-or-go-home playoff matchup.

"Kim's Convenience" will now debut with back-to-back episodes on Oct. 11.

The change will also delay the "Mr. D" season premiere by a week. The comedy series will return on Oct. 18.
