Airdate for ‘What Would You Do?’ Segment Filmed in El Paso Has Changed
The segment of the ABC show What Would You Do that was filmed in El Paso won’t air this spring as was initially anticipated.
According to published reports, WWYD was supposed to premiere Friday, May 10, and the scenes filmed at Mac’s in downtown El Paso were presumably going to be included.
But a change in network programming plans kept it off the schedule. ABC has instead opted to continue to air episodes of 20/20 on Friday nights.
So, what does that mean for What Would You Do? Most likely a summer start date is what I’ve been able to determine based on their response to several inquiries on Facebook.
Our premiere date has been pushed to later on this spring/summer. Once we know, we'll announce!
As we previously reported in April, John Quinones and his crew set up inside Mac’s Place on Mills, across from San Jacinto Plaza. According to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook, the scenario explored was over “today’s immigration issues.” Quinones wrote on his personal page that it was “all about Immigration and The Wall.”

A 93.1 KISS-FM listener who works across the street from Mac’s told Mike and Tricia Mornings she was told by someone who was present during the filming that the scenario involved a customer berating another for speaking Spanish.

The hidden camera show, which secretly films people's reactions to a morally challenging situation, also filmed at Mesilla Valley Mall in Las Cruces and the Museum of Space History in Alamogordo.
It is not known at this time if the scenes shot in the Boderland will all be on the same episode or interspersed throughout the new season.
