"Prison Break" Returns In January
The major networks continue to move away from repeats or lengthy breaks for their serialized shows. FOX already airs "24" with no reruns starting each January. Now, "Prison Break," disappeared from November to March last season, is coming back in January. A press release just confirmed the final fall episode will air on Monday, November 27. Then it takes a brief hiatus for seven weeks (two of which fall on Christmas and New Year's, so really it only misses five weeks) and returns January 22 for a two hour recap show. On January 29th it airs the first of nine final episodes, culminating in the season finale March 26. Which begs the question, what will they air from April 2 on? That long break for "Lost" is looking more and more dangerous all the time.
