    Default Reairing of Preempted "Pearl Harbor" episode




    In case those of you on the East Coast USA haven't found an alternate way of viewing this episode that was partially preempted by football, it will be aired again Friday April 8th at 8:30 PM.

    I think TV channel companies should all get together and make a decision as to which channel will be the primary channel for showing sport, which will be the primary channel for showing awards, any program that will result in cancellation of popular TV shows, and which channel will not show those events, and that is the channel popular programs like MITM should be shown on. The channel MITM is on here is the primary channel (free to air) for showing sports and awards events which ALWAYS have to be shown at 8pm on a Monday night. On those nights they do cancel MITM and show the episode the next week, but even that is not fair to MITM viewers who don't watch sport (like myself) to have to miss out on our show!

    Can anyone explain to me what "preempted" means? My translator says something like "acquired through precedence, obtained by a preemptive right", but I think it's more like being interrupted by that football game.

    From what I've heard so far, it seems a really common problem to you people. New, never shown episodes are just interrupted by football and not shown completely, right? So you have to wait till they show it again? That seems weird to me.
    Whenever that happens in my country, they are showing the episode next day or week, so that the whole thing just shifts. That's no big deal because we get the episodes more than a year later than you guys (synchronisation needs time); one week more or less is not a big difference.

    Preempted means that, by the network's sole discretion, something unscheduled comes up that is more important that what was scheduled.

    Fox felt that football was more important than Malcolm, so they decided they would show football instead of Malcolm.

    When the President decides to give a news conference, that is usually more important than what was scheduled to be shown, so the networks show him instead.

    In some cases, they show the preempted episodes, but Fox has decided not to to date.

    Wow, if the PM makes a speech in this country, its usually just shown on the 24 hour news channels, and the evening news... Not live across the main networks.

    It's shown on basically every network...major, minor...it's a big event.

    This is primetime, I'm talking about, by the way. It's not nearly that big of a deal normally.
