Saturday’s Seconds

A number of shows are being repeated today, either on their original networks or on cable affiliates:

1 p.m. Chuck (Pilot) USA
4 p.m. Journeyman (Pilot) USA
5 p.m. Bionic Woman (Pilot) USA
7 p.m. Heroes (second episode) NBC
8 p.m. Bionic Woman (second episode) NBC
9 p.m. Law and Order SVU (second episode) NBC

This may be a one-time thing, or at least not a regularly scheduled deal; next weekend, according to MeeVee’s listings (http://www.meevee.com), the only rerun in the same slot is SVU.  The other two Saturday NBC slots are TBA, and USA’s got movies in the afternoon.

Reruns Already

For those who might have missed them, the networks (and related channels) are running some of their pilots a second time, taking advantage of a new ratings rule which allows them to count repeated airings within a certain number of days as part of their ratings totals.  Expect to see a number of shows claim to be “America’s Number One New Show” or something like that.

The reruns are:

Journeyman.  Tonight at 6 on SciFi.  Don’t know if this will be a regular re-airing, as they’ve done with Heroes in the past.  I’ll check and get back to you.

Reaper.  Tonight at 8 on CW.  Taking SUPERNATURAL’s slot for a week, and trying to build on the expected crossover fanbase the two (three) shows share.

K-Ville.  Tomorrow at 8 on CW.  NASHVILLE has been pulled from the schedule, supposedly to return in October after the baseball playoffs, screwing up a number of tv dead pools by not providing a clean cancellation.  K-VILLE will take the slot, at least for the near future.

Moonlight and Cane.  Saturday at 7 and 8 p.m. on CBS.  Look for reruns on Saturdays on CBS, leading into 48 HOURS MYSTERIES.  Whether it will be the same shows every week, or whatever CBS thinks needs ratings boosts, it’s too early to tell yet.

Heroes, Chuck, and L&O: SVU, Saturday at 7, 8, and 9 p.m. on NBC.  Ditto, NBC Saturdays.  Of note here are the SVU episode, which featured a great turn by Cynthia Nixon (SEX IN THE CITY) as a woman with multiple personalities, and Bronson Pinchot (PERFECT STRANGERS — Yes, Cousin Balki) as her shrink; and the limited-commercial-interruptions HEROES, which took a breakneck pace and brought us up to date on almost all the cast, while introducing at least 3 new characters.
