ION hires Boston Legal for fall cases

Boston LegalConsidering how often ABC has opted to not air repeats of Boston Legal during its first four years, it should come as good news to fans of Denny & Alan's buddy dramedy that ION has picked up the series. It plans to re-air the series weeknights in the fall. Personally, I'm thrilled because I missed the first season altogether and various scattered episodes here and there since then. Oh, and Boston Legal isn't streamed at ABC.com.

Alan: "So what do you think of our show going to ION, Denny?"
Denny: "Well I knew technology was making things smaller and smaller, but an ion Alan? Really?"
Alan: "Denny!"
Denny: "No, I'm serious, Alan. [Holds his hands out in front of him] How would you hold it?"
Alan: "ION is a TV channel."
Denny: "Oh. Like ABC? Well, not ABC, but NBC. CBS is okay, but nobody beats Johnny."
Alan: "What are you talking about, Denny. ABC's a network."
Denny: "It's just alphabet soup. Nobody watches the shows on that channel. Just you wait and see, they won't make it. The last thing we need is another damned channel ... I once spent a summer with this girl named Amanda Barbara Carlson. Hot little number. That was an ABC I kept turned on all the time. And Ds. Well, those turned me on."
Alan: "You're not making any sense, Denny."
Denny: "Huh? What? Of course I am. Besides [points to head], mad cow. It all makes perfect sense. You're just not thinking it right."
Alan: "Indeed."

Actually, the sinfully brief Hollywood Reporter article does sound that way... it says "off-ABC," and what else could that mean? Weird, though, as it also clearly says "weeknights."

Anyway, I only saw one episode once, so I need to watch this guy and catch up.

How do you figure that? It's just repeats.

And repeats will be shown on ABC during the day in the fall also.

From the look of it...this means that NEW episodes are airing on ION...not just reruns...clarification?????
