Something Odd Going On...

Post by Snowth Poogle on Mon Jun 02, 2014 4:44 pm

Is anyone else experiencing this: two back-to-back episodes everyday now?

This is happening on my PBS right now: 4:00 and 4:30. I've never known PBS to play any episodes of any shows back-to-back like, I really don't know what to make of it.

Unfortunately, nothing good on right now; I checked the latest two-month schedule recently, and it looks like the next we'll get anything good is a few Season 4 episodes in the rotation sometime later in July.

Yeah, PBS advertised it, it's a part of their summer month program, I think.

Apparently select stations are participating in a "double the fun" program where they show two episodes of select shows back to back,and it turns out we got Arthur.

I read an article online somewhere. PBS is evidently trying to boost its rating over the summer by playing the more popular and wide-age-range series back-to-back June through August. This is a major change from what PBS normally does. Arthur's been on at 7:00am on my station ever since I can remember until this summer lineup change.

If your local station is doing the double episodes, look forward to Seasons 4-6 in July! The episodes will be mixed with Seasons 11-13 episodes. Wish we could get Season 1 or 2 to air...

I've been looking around and it appears that double episodes *may* be coming back (at least temporarily) in November on PBS. According to schedules from KUED and KLRU, I've pieced together several bits on info, and it looks like beginning Nov. 16, Arthur will move to the 6:00am Eastern time slot (currently occupied by Caillou). The double episodes are reappearing during the 3-4pm Eastern time slot (currently occupied by the double Curious George hour). Included in the current lineup are some oldie/goodies: #0118, #0129, and #0201. Very Happy

PBS Kids does have a new show Nature Cat premiering Nov. 25, so I would imagine this schedule change I've discussed here will be somewhat temporary until this new show starts airing on a regular schedule. Though, I've also heard rumors that this new Nature Cat is only airing twice a week until a later date.

Of course, all of this depends on your local station and how much they carry directly from the PBS national feed schedule. But it is a glimmer of something to hope for and look forward to, especially with part of Season 1 airing!

Some stations such as NJTV in New Jersey still air the double run of Arthur and have continued to air it ever since it started last year. This Monday, the secondary run has "Sue Ellen Gets Her Goose Cooked/Best of the Nest". Interestingly, the primary run (seen on all stations) has a random "old episode" airing with "Arthur Loses His Marbles/Friday the 13th" but the rest of the week is all newer episodes. The rest of the secondary run for the next two weeks is Season 7 in order.

Today's "Arthur Loses His Marbles/Friday the 13th" is part of a themed week for Grandparents Day which was on Sunday. All the episodes this week have a grandparent focus. They should have scheduled "The Half Baked Sale"!

Tell me about it. "Grandpa Dave's Old Country Farm," "Arthur's Almost Boring Day," The Half-Baked Sale," "D.W. the Picky Eater," "Grandma Thora Appreciation Day," "Clarissa is Cracked." They all should have been scheduled; unfortunately, all by the latter two are from Season 1, which (until we see for sure) is retired from the rotation.
