I think every season of Gotham has been on a different channel. So should we start taking bets as to what channel Season Five will be on (if it does get renewed).

So that to my mind made it a poor choice as a production break filler where we got to see six episodes and then the remainder of the series only months later.
And these new juggling "broadcast breaks" as well... yanking things off that weren't supposed to be interrupted, just to put something who's break has been long in the tooth back on again. Professionally that just looks like a joke...

The last straw on the camel's back for me is this week's new nonsense now showing itself everywhere:

*Starts an hour later due to American Idols*

Actually, the thing that bugs me more about that is that as far as I'm aware, the show's name is American Idol, not Idols. And I've checked - you are quoting it correctly, so that's a failing on whoever put the schedule together.

Unless they do it different to edge the outcome will likely be the same. But I do feel that we are 1 channel short regardless of financial implications

Anyway IMO

Trying to squeeze clowns into a non clown car. It doesn't work

I'll leave it at that. Talking amongst ourselves doesn't improve the situation. It just makes us more upset
