I really hate the way the new programming is set up. I just checked the TV Guide and we will have another rerun tonite. I swear this is really getting old! It makes me almost want to just quit watching and wait for the whole season to come out on DVD.

Darn, darn, darn, I was really looking forward to seeing this tonight. I watch all the shows, so the rerun doesn't interest me. I used to like the way they used to do it. Reruns in the summer, thats the way it should be.

I like the old way of reruns in the summer too! You know what to expect!

I hear you. What ever happened to the days when a season would run September through April or May, all the way through. There would only be reruns in the summer. I'm getting really sick of every single show playing reruns in the middle of the season. There's no reason to watch. I don't anticipate the show anymore.

I like the old system much better. At least we knew what to expect then! Now it is hit or miss with a new episode.

Most of the shows that I watch are reruns. I will watch it only if I by chance missed the episode. But, lately, I find myself channel surfing to find a show that peaks my interest. I would rather watch something else than a rerun.

Yes, I saw that on the rerun. It gets frustrating when they have reruns in the middle of the season. Or what seems like it should be the middle of the season. The new season used to start in September then end in May with reruns only on in the summers. This jumping around on the shows and repeats gets tiresome.

I agree. I liked it when reruns were in the summer, and the regular season was all new episodes. I could swear I saw previews that said it would be new Thursday though. I was so disappointed when it was a rerun. So if they are having the music video thing on the 12th, I'm guessing that they will have new episodes starting the 19th? I crave story!! Gotta know where the George-Callie-Izzy thing is! But I won't say I won't watch the clips thing next week.....it'll be a refresher for what's to come. They usually show the things that they are gonna focus on next.

I agree with you totally. I am getting tired of all these shows shoving reruns down our throats. We get one new episode and then reruns for the next 4 weeks. Fox does the same thing with House. In a second i'm going to stop watching. I do believe it is affecting their ratings and whoever is doing the planning of how the shows run is doing a very bad job. It is very hard to follow the storyline of a show when they keep preempting the line up every few weeks. Just give me 10-12 episodes and then show reruns in the summer while you are producing the next season. If I see the stupid episode on Grey's Anatomy where Chrisitina tells the chief that she has been covering for Burke in surgery one more time, then I'm turning off my TV for good!

I know, it seems like TV seasons are getting shorter and shorter as the years go by. TV shows used to have something like 50 shows a year. Now it's down to 22 or so. Less than half. And they're getting paid so much more than they were back them. It's crazy. I can't wait for the new episodes. I believe it starts April 12th or so, but it's just a clip show with Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I believe the new episodes start after that.

Reruns are a fact of life but they serve a good purpose. They allow you to catch shows that you missed and also to look at other shows that schedules conflict with the ones you normally watch. Another thing to keep in mind is that most networks are holding back new episodes until sweeps. That's when several companies (like nielson ratings) check to see just how popular a show is by seeing how many people are watching it and from what demographics. The more people watching during sweeps, the better chance that your favorite show will be picked up for another season. It's all about the bottom line...
