ABC pushes 'Flash Forward' return date to March 4
During last night’s fall finale of ABC’s Flash Forward, the network ran a teaser promo revealing that the thriller series—which was originally scheduled to take the holidays off and return in January—actually would not return to new episodes until March 4. According to Variety, network insiders said the move allows Flash Forward to run from March through May without any repeats, as well as avoid the NBC’s airing of the Olympics in February. Lengthy hiatuses are common this season. ABC aired four episodes of V in November, but won’t return until March 30, in a post-Lost slot. Fox’s Glee and Lie to Me are also going to employ the long-break strategy.
