    This show will turn out like V on ABC, It will come back from hiatus and the ratings will drop dramatically and it will be cancelled. NBC is full of idiots with their Hiatus BS, they did this with Battlestar Galactica and Caprica on SyFy, BSG just barely survived athe only reason was because the episodes were already shot and SyFy had nothing to replace it with. Don't get me wrong I loved BSG.

    Since Revolutions is on Network TV I don't think it will fair so well. I dvr the episodes and watch them if I feel like it, I'm pretty drained out watching TV on Monday after a full Sunday night of The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire and Homeland.

    Not just V, but other shows has had this happen. You would think that someone would figure that out. I greatly fear you are correct--Revolution is doomed. :(

    I have the last 2 shows from the fall on the dvr and have not watched them yet. I kind of feel like most of the above comments, which is the long hiatus will doom this show.

    Well, hopefully since NBC did already pick up the next half of the season, they can maybe work out an ending for the show as it seems like it will probably not make it to season 2.

    When you have only 22-24 shows per 52-week year, obviously there are going to be breaks.

    They could spread the show out from September to May, or show it in two big chunks.

    I have no problem with the latter, particularly for a serial drama, which requires in-sequence viewing without repeats to fill many gaps.

    This show is more likely to go the way of Lost - 15(ish) episodes a year all blown out back-to-back.

    I thought Lost had the smaller seasons only because of the writers' strike.

    Season 4 was split into two shorter seasons because of the strike.

    A five-season arc was turned into six seasons because of the one split season. They ended up with 121 episodes, which is essentially five 24-episode seasons (the original plan).

    When the end date was set, which was months before the strike, three seasons of 16 uninterrupted episodes were announced.

    No, it was announced as 6 seasons before the strike. Season 4 wasn't split at all.

    Season 1 - 25 episodes
    Season 2 - 24 episodes
    Season 3 - 23 episodes
    Announcement of 3 final seasons being 16 episodes each.
    Season 4 - 16 episodes (even with strike)
    Season 5 - 16 episodes
    Season 6 - 16 episodes

    Season 4 had 13 episodes which became 14 by lengthening the finale, which was a direct result of the strike. There was a four week break during the season.

    Yup, you're right. Season 4 had 14.

    That break was excrutiating!
