Gilmore Girls Redux

Reported by Maureen Ryan in the Chicago Tribune:
May 18, 2005 6:15 PM CDT: The 'Girls' are back

'GILMORE GIRLS' UPDATE: The WB's executive vice president for network communications, Brad Turell, said Wednesday that the network will broadcast the entire "Gilmore Girls" finale again some time in the next two weeks. The date of the rebroadcast will be decided in the next few days.

"We feel silly. It shouldn't have happened, but it did," Turell said of the unscheduled overtime. He added that the finale might be made available via the WB's Web site.

In the meantime, Chicago fans of the show can catch the crucial final scene on the WGN Morning News on Monday, May 23. The Luke-Lorelai scene will be broadcast some time between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. on WGN-Ch. 9.

I'll let you know the date of the rebroadcast of the entire finale as soon as it becomes available.

It's nice to know that at least one network gets it (or claims to-- we'll see if they actually deliver on this promise). Don't screw over your viewers, and they won't hate you for it. No viewers, no network. Any questions?

UPDATE 5/23:
Gilmore Girls season finale re-broadcast
Missed it the first time? Want to see it again? Watch the dramatic cliffhanger of Gilmore Girls!

8/7c encore, "Blame it on Booze and Melville"
9/8c season finale encore, "A House is not a Home"
The season finale encore will NOT run-over.
-- WGN 9, Chicago
Looks like several WB affiliates are doing the right thing-- in addition to KBWB 20 in the bay area, there's KTLA in Los Angeles and WPIX in New York.

Or, if you can't wait, there's always b-i-t-t-o-r-r-e-n-t.
