ABC Splits Up the Debut For V: Brilliant or Baffling?

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?

Four episodes is just not enough to pull viewers in to the point where they will be paying attention months later. Unless it is amazing, which I doubt is the case if they are treating it this way.

I think you mean the 1980's mini series , not 1908.
