Everybody’s favorite Season! :crazy_face:

Jokes aside, I think they recently overturned their decision of stopping physical DVD sales, but it’s good there is other methods of online distribution of the newer Seasons. Wonder if they have the older Seasons on there too. :thinking:

#467

That title card is a blatant lie. New episode only at 9pm.


#468

Technically, they are airing in their current format (widescreen 16:9 cropped) for the first time on Australian TV.


#469

Shonky excuse.


#470

If that the approach that Seven (or was it GWN) are taking, it shows a disrespect for their viewers.


#471

Also technically new on the 7 Network.


#472

Being broadcast for the first time on a network doesn’t make an episode new.


#473

Not much thought ever goes into the subtitles on the Prime/GWN signposts. Usually they go with “hit series”

Annnd I just took another look at the image and saw that they in fact used just that for American Dad. Case closed.


#474

I know that but do these pesky Networks!? Clearly they’re being slightly misleading in their promo.


#475

Full end credits aired after D’Oh’in in the Wind… maybe someone at Seven is paying attention…


#476

I’m pretty sure I’ve heard one of the networks in the past say that new episodes and similar is true when it’s first on their network. Yes misleading but what isn’t these days?


#477

Only the truth. :slight_smile:


#478

The Simpsons is on 7mate right now in double episodes.


#479

i think they’re just repeats of 2 episodes that ran last night


#480

They are. Which makes this scheduling more interesting.


#481

Reminds me of when Nine scheduled new episodes of TBBT twice in one night. From memory it was raised by Knoxy on TV Tonight and the explanation was along the lines of “we’re only charged once to run an episode twice in a set period” - could be a similar deal here.


#482

Perhaps Seven are trying to get their money’s worth for the purchase from Fox. Switching to the more popular Seven network hasn’t seen Simpsons’ ratings improve.


#483

Also seems to be a one off, not scheduled for next Thurs as yet.


#484

Testing the waters.
