"Rizzoli and Isles will return NEXT SUMMER" - TV series "seasons" have gotten ridiculous!

They've showed, what, 6 or 7 episodes? And now the "Season Finale", with the proud announcement "Rizzoli and Isles will return next summer!".

Like anyone is even going to REMEMBER the show 9 months from now?

Next up.. a "series" consisting of a SINGLE 60 minute episode, ONCE a year!!

Try 10 episodes. That is probably about half of the number of episodes of the regular season shows, but look how much longer they spread out the showing. You get to see the program name in the TV guide from September until May, but that includes a lot of reruns.

I musta missed a couple at the beginning... but STILL..
10 weeks of shows, and NINE MONTHS of reruns?

No, unlike the regular networks, I think the cable networks will probably be introducing some new stuff instead of using reruns of a one season program for nine months. I actually enjoy the bigger variety of programming that comes with more, shorter seasonal programming.

Yes, the cable networks usually alternate shows like summer and winter wardrobes.

By the way, Paul, did you catch Rizzoli's comment about the fit of the tracksuit she had to wear for the "Massachusetts" marathon?

It certainly upped the ante from "Let's just how him our tits and get it over with". (Rizzoli would have regretted that move. Isles clearly had her outgunned.)

OMG! More of that inane show?

I still don't see how anyone, smart enough to be a member of this forum, could enjoy that completely overacted fiasco.

It's all about choice, Gene.


I still don't see...

You don't have to. You don't like it, so be it. But there's no need to get your panties in a twist because somebody else does.

And being a "member of this forum" is apropos of nothing. There are more than a few members with far bigger flaws than watching TV shows that don't meet your approval, like the lack of common sense or objectivity.

You saw the subject line and you could have skipped the thread entirely. No need to pop a vessel over a TV show.

Now I could end this missive with a cutesy little emotocon, but I don't see how an adult up could use those at all. But rather than worry about that, I just choose not to.

That was easy.

They are just copying Brit series now. They are all 6 to 10 eps each.

I don't know if all British seasons are like that, but it does seem like most are.

But in this case, I think it's just the Summer replacement series that have short seasons. That and the fact that a lot of those are untried and a few episodes is all they get, in case they go T/U.

.....many new series are only give a limited number of episodes to see if the show will work out....so they may have shorter first seasons....

I'd rather have 12 episodes of The Wire than 22 episodes of According to Jim.

Well... my wife and I really like the series.... inspired by Tess Gerritsen's novels. Obviously many others enjoy it too.
