    Did they ever show more than 2 new eps in a row? This constant repeat thing is out of hand. ABC often has long rerun cycles with NYPD Blue but then we'll get 6 or 8 new eps in a row. Smallville's a great show being hurt by Constant repeats, eventually people may start trying other things at this crowded time block

    Dave: It's just that time of the season. Alot of shows on a lot of networks have repeats mixed with new episodes during "midseason".

    Once March is out of the way, I think we'll have a nice stretch run of episodes for April and May.

    That's true but has Smallville ever shown more than 3 new eps in a row ? I don't think so

    According to the tracker at The Futon Critic they showed seven in a row at the very beginning of the season. Since then, the most has been three. But I don't see that as atypical.
    Probably the show that has been most consistent is 24. But they started later and have more episodes.

    Well over in the U.K. we traditionaly run straight through programs in order(Both UK and US). But now we're stuck waited for more episodes from the US.

    On a more negative side, the wait now means that Channel 4 in the UK has to show panned and $camed version they receive via satalite link untill they get the nice 16:9 versions via tape!
