Why did they schedule tonights Alcatraz for 3/10 before the Daytona rain delay?
They have been repeating the episodes on Saturday since the pilot. The premiere was the pilot and the second episode, so they have been an episode behind on the Saturday repeats.
It would still be good to check to see if the episodes scheduled hold or are changed.
Just checked, and my HR34 GUIDE is showing NASCAR from 7PM ET to 12:30AM on my FOX local, WNYW.
Smart Search currently shows no House episodes on FOX 5 through 3/11.
NASCAR is on, "House" and "Alcatraz" won't be. Here's what was on our Fox affiliate a few minutes ago:
That is one sharp photo. How did you take that?
I'm watching from my upstairs Dish ViP722DVR via my Slingbox PRO HD in a "window" on my downstairs office desktop computer which can handle HD. It's simply a screenshot.
It doesn't look like it, but House/Alcatraz could air tonight depending on how the race goes.
That explains why it looks so good.
Considering it's now after 9pm Eastern and the race is still on, with not a cloud in sight, I don't think either will be on.
From my local Fox stations facebook post:
Updated House and Alcatraz information.
Next week (3/5) 2 hours of Alcatraz. House will return on March 12 and 19th followed by Alcatraz.
It looks like the DTV guide updated to reflect the info you were given by your local fox affiliate. So no House for 2 weeks
OK, the guide now shows the two hours of Alcatraz for next Monday 3/5. Episode "The Ames Brothers" and episode "Sonny Burnett".
It also shows episode "Clarence Montgomery" with an original air date of 2/27 to be shown on Saturday 3/10.
Are all three episodes new?
This is so Fox. :eek2:
What follows those paragraphs is a Fox news release. That is followed by:
Anyway, I'm sure a day or two after I've missed them, this week's episodes of "House" and "Alcatraz" will be aired.
And they want 300% price increases to boot....
Cripes! It's finally over!
Six hours, 10 cautions, and a major wreck involving a track blowing vehicle, with explosions and all.
Damn! This race was looooooooong.
Yeah... I'm not a NASCAR fan, but I was forced to keep an eye on it in case... but every time I looked over they were stopped for some reason... and I noted it was still going at close to 1am I think...
The good thing is that it ran SO late they didn't even have a chance to think about airing on the west coast... so FOX will have to re-run these on a normal night at some point unless they really want to screw their viewers.
Much like the baseball mess earlier this season... I wish FOX would do a better job of handling these things.
The smarter move would have been to decide (once the rain delay happened Sunday) to pre-empt their new primetime tonight no matter what. Either show repeats if the race was delayed again OR show the race... that would make fans of the race and fans of the shows happier to know well in advance that they were not going to miss whichever they were hoping would air.
Alcatraz was on last night. Check the download sites.
[MOD EDIT] I don't know about House, didn't see downloads for that.
thefutoncritic.com currently shows that the preempted episode of Alcatraz will not air on Sat, March 10, but will air on Mon, March 12 (possibly repeating on Sat, March 24).
The two episodes originally scheduled for March 5 have not been changed.
Maybe they need to change the name to SMASHCAR.
Not a follower in the least, but I was recording it for someone who is a fan...so caught maybe 3-4 glimpses while flipping channels to make sure it got the whole thing recorded. WOW - plenty of messed up cars.
I sure missed HOUSE.
