Evidently not even FOX's own affiliates seem to know what the heck is going on, as a Google search of them reveals some are advertising "Helter Shelter" (ugh) and some are advertising "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" (yay).
. More than likely, the second group just take their schedule from the official FOX site.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - I hate the American Network TV system
Actually makes you appreciate Sky and the Beeb. (Well, maybe "appreciate" is too strong a word
EDIT - I'm going on a rant now
. I still can't understand why Sky are prevented from showing new episodes before FOX - their target reach is entirely separate (or can you get Sky in the US via satellite?) and I would have thought Sky would get fed up of having to muck about with their programming to accomodate FOX's total lack of consistancy?
It's also interesting that Sky are currently only airing new eps of "The Simpsons" every three weeks or so - and I've missed a couple (yes, I still watch it even if it isn't Season 3-8 quality) because of it. Are Sky just trying to extend the season longetivity or is it because Season 14 started over here at roughly the same time it did in the US?
Finally, a minor question - in the US, is HD (High Definition) TV just a fancy word for what we Brits would call Digital TV?
