    Already talking about season finales! The “year” went faster than Barry Allen!

  2. Carla Krae says:

    Why are TVD and TO finales on separate dates? They have the same ep count, don’t they? It doesn’t make sense to separate them.

  3. Interesting! Wonder when the other networks will announce their Season finale dates?

  4. CK says:

    Hopefully, the may 25th end date for Arrow means that they have some big things in store on the Damien front. The plo tline as it stands now has been stretched to the limits.

  5. sarah t says:

    Anyone heard if iZombie has been renewed yet?

  6. emilyecross says:

    Isn’t Reign going to be airing Mondays at 8/7c, taking Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s slot? Jane the Virgin won’t wrap until 3 weeks after Reign comes back, so they can’t share a time splt

  7. PriceIsRightCancelled says:

    Don’t know if Reign is going to survive for another season even though one of its cast members is leaving the show.

    • I was thinking that, but if they (loosely as they have always done) follow history, Mary will go back to Scotland soon, so maybe the character will be redundant anyway. Maybe we will lose a lot of French-based characters, if of course it is renewed!

    WOW! what a great entity

  9. Gail says:

    Guess there will be another stretch of reruns for Flash and Green Arrow, after the current one to get them to last until the end of May.

    • Shaun says:

      reruns on Wednesday is terrorism!!So boring without Arrow.

    • JC1 says:

      Yeah, there’ll be two weeks in April with no new episodes. I’m just not sure which two weeks. Sweeps runs from April 28-May 25, so most likely no breaks in that time period.

  10. Jean says:

    CW is running shows longer this year than past.

    *sign* now that means yet more breaks, I was hoping for 7-8 episodes back to back till the second week of may like CW has done for past few years.

    Gosh I hate there programing. ABC rules with how they do it.

    • John NYC says:

      With such a huge winter break shows drop viewership and crater? Some might argue if s show is that weak it can’t bring people back it deserves to get hurt, but that gap strikes me as unnecessary extra punishment. I like the continuity but breaking that in two notdomuch.

      No, I’m not a fan of ABC’s monster gap.

      • Gail says:

        The thing is today with DVRs , On Demand, Hulu, Netflix etc. there are so many ways to see a program that you didn’t watch live that few people watch network reruns. I think that what ABC does with Once Upon A Time which is to have 2 mini seasons each year each with a complete story works well. Also ABC short series such as Agent Carter and Galavant work well to bridge the gap between. I would love for a series to run 22 weeks uninterrupted but that doesn’t appear to be possible unless they filmed the series completely before they start broadcasting it. Kind of what we will get with Person of Interest this year except they only filmed 13 episodes.

        • Jen says:

          Except when you get onto a program mid-season! Hubby and I have been watching The Flash and Arrow on Netflix, but when we finished the Netflix episodes we would love to have joined in with the current season, except that you can only see the 5 or so most recent episodes online! So I would love to DVR reruns of the first half of the season and then continue to the end, but there aren’t any!

      • tvjunkie says:

        I’m not really buying that, because the same strategy of split seasons or long times between seasons has worked for cable shows for a very, very long time (I’m talking a couple decades now).

  11. Belle says:

    I am so tired of shows taking so many longer hiatus’ throughout the year :( Too much time between any new episodes is really a show killer…I miss the days of 10-12 new eps, then 4-6 weeks off mid December – mid January(ish) then 12 more new eps with all season finale’s in May. I don’t mind a week or two here or there, but just look at the ratings. Unless you’re a hard-core fan of a show people grow bored waiting and many never return because they found another show to fill the void. I guess I’m just bummed at how many shows end up canceled because of this. RIP Reign you had such potential!!

    • Gail says:

      I remember when shows ran straight through with maybe a week off for Christmas and/ or New Years. The shows finished for the year as early as mid February for the season and did nor resume until the week after Labor Day. This was before local affiliates demanded fresh programs in May. It was also a time when networks ran more specials so that regular programming got preempted more often than now happens. There was no such thing as a winter finale.

    • tvjunkie says:

      If that’s true, then how do explain the same programming model having worked for cable shows for at least the time frame of the 90s to the present day?

    • Cameron says:

      Agree! There are just way too many breaks for these shows. The CW is horrible at this. I would rather the show run as many episodes as possible and have an earlier season finale then have a few episodes, go on a break, a few more episodes then go on another long break.
