    Designated Survivor not airing again until March

    What's with that? Is that common on the major networks now?

    I don't watch a lot of network tv, but yeah, I think it's becoming more common. Lots of sporting events happening in January and February, so folks start a winter hiatus and pick it up again when the sports world settles down. Oh and stuff like the Oscars. That's also on ABC, Designated Survivor's network.
    Thanks from Madeline

    It's probably Putin's fault.

    Yeah, that's it, it's the Russians...

    For some shows it is. I think it depends on how many episodes they have. Not all shows make 22 episode seasons like it used to be

    And we're seeing more and more commercials. My wife an I once counted 21 in a row, then looked like it was coming back to the program and three more.

    The show may have to "adjust" itself for the Trump Presidency...


    like "The West Wing" did in 2001, when Dubya took over. TWW started in 1999 with Clinton in office, and it was supposed to be Aaron Sorkin's "I wish Bill was like 'Jed Bartlet' more" thing.....after Dubya, it became more like "If only we had a 'Jed Bartlet', instead of this goober" thing.

    It's common now. It's how the networks keep your attention vs how it was done in the past. Instead of having one season of a show, they are splitting into 2 - 3 mini season as to keep your attention.
