What Are You Watching?

I really think network TV is behind the times.  With a regular television season being 22 weeks they should divide the year up into two seasons.  Forget about the summer of reruns and failed pilots.  Have a winter season and a summer season.  Some of the other networks have taken advantage of the lack of new shows during the summer.  You see new shows on USA, FX, Fox and some of the other networks.  When will the big three (or are they even still the big three) going to follow form?

Actually this post was going to be about what are you watching now that we are in the midst of rerun season.  Are you watching the same shows again?  Or are you watching some of these shows on the other networks?  I'm watching "In Plain Sight" on USA and this is one of my favorite shows on any network.  Also "Royal Pains" is a fun show.  And I've just gotten in "Breaking Bad" in the last few months.

What are you watching?

I like the way USA Channel does their programs. They run a season of about 8 episodes that tell an episode long story and also wrap up a season long story in that time. Then they break for a couple of months and come back for about 8 more new episodes.

I'd like them to go about 12 episodes before a 2 month hiatus, but I'll settle for knowing I'm not going to have to wait 6 months between seasons.

I agree, it works.
