ABC's Fall drama V is going to have an unorthodox birth: first, it will premiere in November with a four-episode run and then stop until March, when it will resume again. The main reason cited is the Winter Olympics, which will be airing and taking up prime-time viewers.
The show, a remake of the 1980s alien invasion miniseries, has promise — it stars Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell and Scott Wolf, and the futuristic extraterrestrial subject matter is pretty beloved. Maybe breaking up the debut will make you want more — but if you do, will you even remember, months later, to tune in? Or do you think ABC should have held the show to air it all together?
