For reasons that are a mystery, Fox has decided to air Season 1, Episode 13, on Friday 9/14/2012. According to this August 28 story:

The second season of Touch doesn’t premiere on FOX for another two months — the premiere date for Season 2 is Friday, October 26, after events like the World Series have passed. However, before we get to Season 2, we will be getting a previously-unseen leftover episode from Season 1 on September 14. Here’s how FOX describes the episode, which is titled “The Road Not Taken.”

I guess this is all part of the "Whac-A-Mole" system now used for television scheduling.

"In a hundred years there'll be a whole new set of people."
"Always poke the bears. They sleep too much for their own good."

"If you're good enough, they'll talk about you." - Tom Harmon

Odd, but I've certainly seen worse...like American Gothic back in the 90s.

The good news is that last years SL, automatically pics this up correctly.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

FOX has a reputation for holding back episodes and airing them out of order on new shows... so this isn't much of a surprise really.
