Ask TV Squad: What's Up With The 'Lost' Rerun?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 26th 2010 3:05PM
T'Lost' logoV watchers are a curious group, something that we at TV Squad see every day. We get questions that are as current as "When is 'Mad Men' coming back?" to ones that are more wistful, such as "When is 'Shark' coming back? Boy, I loved that James Woods!"

But, our readers aren't the only ones who are curious tube fans. We ask each other questions, ones that sometimes get answered right away and ones that need a little research.

So, in this new incarnation of "Ask TV Squad," we're not only going to answer reader questions, but we're also going to try to answer some of the burning questions that have been confounding us here at TV Squad HQ.

If you have a question that you'd like answered, feel free to e-mail us at asktvsquad [at] gmail [dot] com.

For now, we'll start with a question that's gotten everyone curious:

Why is tomorrow's episode of 'Lost' a rerun? I thought ABC was going to air 'Lost' straight through without repeats. It's a bummer to have a repeat while it's been building momentum towards its big finale.

Here's a little something for Better Off Ted fans

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 29th 2009 1:30PM
Did you know that there was supposed to be a new episode ("Jabberwocky") of Better Off Ted last night? But ABC decided to go with a rerun of the Bachelorette finale. Which had already aired. The night before.

Sigh.

Anyway, two episodes next week. In the meantime, there's this.

WGA Strike: Get ready for reruns

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 12th 2007 9:29AM
heroesI'm about to have a lot of free time on my hands when my favorite shows go into reruns due to this writers strike. Besides the late night talk shows, the first scripted series to go into reruns is The Office, which has only one new episode left and it airs this Thursday.

Michael Ausiello over at TV Guide has a long list of television shows and how many new episodes are left. I'll give you a quick list of the most popular shows, and you can click on over to see the others (not everything is listed):

CBS reruns HIMYM's Slap Bet episode tonight

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 23rd 2007 1:03PM
Slap BetI usually don't highlight repeats, but this is a special case:

Tonight, CBS will rerun what I thought was the funniest half-hour of TV in 2006: the "Slap Bet" episode of How I Met Your Mother. I'm not the only one who thought the episode was a high point of the 2006-07 television season, though: The Boston Globe thought it was the 2nd best episode of any show that aired in 2006. And Alan Sepinwall of the Newark Star-Ledger felt at the time that HIMYM made what he called "The Leap" after that episode, meaning that the ep had propelled the show to a higher quality level (though, like me, he later realized that it was more of a "high-water mark." And, also like me, he fell into the trap of comparing subsequent episodes to it).

What made the episode so great?

Unaired Three's Company pilot on TV Land in September

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 17th 2006 11:40AM

three's companyFrom 6 a.m. September 16 to 6 a.m. September 18, TV Land is airing a Three's Company marathon. The marathon will also include episodes of The Ropers and Three's A Crowd, and, for the first time ever on television, the original unaired pilot of Three's Company. Well, actually, this claims it's "one of" the unaired pilots, so I guess they made more than two? Well, whatever the heck it is, it's an episode even diehard Three's Company fans haven't seen before, so it might be worth checking out. No word on the exact time when the pilot episode will air, however, so it's probably best to just sit in front of your TV for those entire 48 hours.

South Park's Scientology episode will air again

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 12th 2006 3:43PM

south parkSouth Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have had to fight quite a few battles over the last several months, from the "Bloody Mary" episode that upset some Catholics to the two-part "Cartoon Wars" episode that was censored by Comedy Central. The two creators had become so fed up they almost walked after the network pulled the "Trapped in the Closet" episode that skewered both Scientology and its most vocal supporter, Tom Cruise. Rumors were abound as to why the episode was pulled, with some, including Parker and Stone, claiming Cruise himself had a hand in it. Well, whatever reason the network might have had is apparently no longer relevant because the episode will return on July 19. No word on whether those censored images of Muhammad from "Cartoon Wars" will ever be seen, though. Of course, you could always just watch the opening credits for that.

Tom Cruise denies pressuring Comedy Central

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 17th 2006 8:08AM
tom cruise; south parkIn an interview with Diane Sawyer that aired on Friday night, Tom Cruise denied reports that he pressured Comedy Central to pull the South Park episode where he is in the closet. He told Sawyer that he was too busy filming Mission Impossible: III to worry about trivial matters like the repeat of South Park. Tom told Sawyer, "I don't spend my days going, 'What are people saying about me?'" Yeah, he pays people to do that.

So. Why did Comedy Central pull the episode?

The Five: Shows I watch in reruns

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 5th 2006 9:37AM
dawson's creek; tbsI found this article interesting, and it made me think about what reruns I always watch. It says that Friends is one of the highest-rated shows in syndication right now. Maybe that's because there's always an episode on at one time or another. Or, maybe you're like me and you're casually catching up on all the episodes you never saw as you fix dinner. In any case, here are The Five: Shows I watch in reruns:

5. Dawson's Creek  Another show that I never watched when it was on, but that I've totally enjoyed in syndication. Last year, TBS was airing two back-to-back episodes each morning. So, I'd drink my coffee and catch up on an entire season of 'The Creek' in two weeks (OMG! I'm so glad that Joey and Pacey ended up together!).

ABC Family to air The Hogan Family

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 1st 2006 6:57PM

hogan familyNow if they would just bring back Silver Spoons and It's Your Move we could complete the Jason Bateman 80s TV Trinity. For now, however, we'll have to settle with the fact that ABC Family plans to air reruns of The Hogan Family, the series that was originally called Valerie and Valerie's Family before Valerie Harper left the show and was replaced by Sandy Duncan. In fact, don't expect to see Valerie Harper at all, as the network only plans to show episodes from the third season on. The show will return on April 3.

Update: The Valerie Harper seasons will air after all, but not until after the first rotation.
