“So you and everyone else knows — next week is NOT a new show. Nor the week after. The next NEW SHOW IS 10 OCTOBER and it is one that is very hard to watch. There needs to be a couple of weeks respite (according to the people that make these decisions, which is not me). THere will be reruns of earlier episodes all day on Tuesday and next week.’

Does this mean they canned two new episodes from Season 2 and decided not to run them?

What’s that going to do to their viewer stats? Running old episodes that have already been run and re-run 4 or 5 times?

Are they going to go back and re-run some of the more successful, and credible, episodes from Season 1?

I can’t imagine that a network would greenlight a 2nd season where they planned to run re-runs so the production crew didn’t need to create new episodes. I mean, that’s what they get paid for – to produce episodes that they can air for the whole season, right?

And what does this mean: “There needs to be a couple of weeks respite (according to the people that make these decisions, which is not me)”

This sounds like a shore story to me – a lie told to deceive the public about what’s really going on, something Mike Rinder did at the top of the Church of Scientology for decades.

What’s really going on here?
