I don't understand it either, kat.

I remember when tv schedules were as follows: new shows in order with no breaks from sept thru may. Reruns of those same shows from june thru august. Shows were on the same day same time same channel for their entire run. Rinse and repeat every year for 50 years or so. But for the last 5 years or so it's a struggle to know what's on when on what channel for how long.

I see no logic for it.

Im just cranky because no more Vampire Diaries for a while means no more Klaus

Yes, it's stupid.
