The 14th episode of season eight of House, “Love is Blind,” will now be shown on March 19th. House is preempted next week by a double helping of Alcatraz and March 12th’s is a repeat so viewers will still see the new episode in production order. House says goodbye on May 21st with a retrospective and a series finale.
The seventh episode of Alcatraz that had been scheduled, titled “Clarence Montgomery,” will now be shown on March 12th. This means that viewers will be seeing episodes out of order but that’s nothing new. The eighth installment was shown on February 13th and the fourth was broadcast a week later, on February 20th.
Alcatraz is scheduled to wrap its season with a pair of episodes on March 24th. All 13 original episodes will have been shown by that point.
What do you think? Does it bother you when shows like Alcatraz are shown out of order? Do you think it hurts the series or that it doesn’t really matter?
