Remember The Good Old Days?

Remember back when TV shows made about 24 episodes a year, and they ran them all back-to-back, and then ran them all again during "rerun" season? I was thinking about how nice that was when they announced at the end of "Heroes" last night that they wouldn't have new episodes until April 23rd, immediately after showing what was probably the best individual cliffhanger episode ever of any TV show. Of course, the "sweeps" concept is to blame -- the networks need new shows in both February and May, so we end up having reruns of everything in March and April.

Of course, this could encourage me to go out and get a life -- naaahh, too much work. I'll just sit around and look at this picture I took of what appears to be the Heroes soundstage at Universal Studios:

So, BH, have you seen the skinny on how they plan on continuing in the seasons to come?

Remember back when 90210 succeeded because Spelling put it on during the rerun season, so it was the only new content to watch?

I miss those days. Now new content's a novel concept even during the regular season.

And I dunno why they're doing these long breaks. The Lost viewership plummeted during theirs. People lose interest and forget to come back.

In a related note, Heroes is filmed in stage 27 - a sign from God, I assume.

Is this because 4 + 23 equals 27? And why aren't you asleep yet? It's past your bedtime for a schoolnight, young man!
