Trouble on the Set of Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath?

“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?

Interesting observation. The last two episodes of Aftermath felt like “filler” material, could have been shot last year for all I know.

I have no idea what their production schedule is like. I would have thought they’d have half the season in the bag before it started, but what do I know?

Maybe the scheduled featured guest got cold feet?

I don’t think this is the result of a serious crisis faced by the show. For example, here are the dates in which the episodes of Family Guy’s last season aired. As you can see, the typical time that would pass between the airing of one episode to the next was a week. However, there were a few cases in which more time passed between the airing of two episodes. Two weeks passed between episodes 7 and 8. A month passed between the airing of episodes 8 and 9 and the same goes for episodes 10 and 11. In my experiece it’s a fairly common occurence with various TV series, I don’t think that anything special happened to Aftermath.

1) Collect money from advertisers while doing nothing but running reruns.

2) The CoS finally decided to sue A&E. From the preview of the next episode, Aftermath is apparently going to depict “Scientology” as child beaters. Re-editing in progress.

3) BIG money in Hollywood doesn’t like A&E attacking its own. A battle of the titans.

I confused how does the church of scientology deal with a suppressive person if I had a family member who was a scientologists and I did not like them being a scientologists would they have to disconnect from me ?
