    I was looking forward to what the previews promised was going to be either the final or at least the penultimate RJ episode. Too bad it was replaced by a re-run, at least in my area. Though they did run the previews for S06E07 "The Great Red Dragon" at the end (which I tried to ignore in case of spoilers).

    If anyone's seen the real episode yet, what did you think?

    We didn't get the answer we were looking for and something else was revealed which wasn't really a surprise anymore, so it was rather disappointing really...

    Despite DirecTV's guide info that the ep's OAD was 11/3/13, I too saw the same rerun you did.

    I wonder when TPTB pulled the new ep and replaced with this rerun. And I wonder when the unaired episode will actually run.

    My DirecTV service is messed up so I had to use alternate means to get the episode, it must have aired someplace. Perhaps it was a local affiliate or two that showed the rerun.
    You might find it repeated sometime this week, but I sure wouldn't count on it. It might be a good idea to watch via CBS.com or other means to catch ir before next week.

    It appears many (most) of us did not get the new episode, but a rerun instead. Since this probably occurred across the country, CBS will have to do something!?!

    I see at least three different locations that didn't get it.

    Where are you that you saw the new episode? Which provider?

    Football even longer then normal. Mentalist started at about 11p EDT. I don't think the ratings would have counted in the weekly prime time listing.

    Here is the Facebook update from The Mentalist. It appears it was running so late, due to NFL football, they decided to run a repeat instead.

    As we've discussed ad infinitum in other threads, CBS is just killing themselves with this. They hype this episode ALL WEEK LONG, then bump it.



    So can we know assume you either watched a preview or viewed it thru other means?

    I'll cross-post this to the Season Thread we have going...

    I think it aired in Canada, according to some fb posts. Makes it even odder...

    Not a chance on earth. These need to be shown in order, so next week will get this week's. Which means DVRs will be screwed up, unless TiVo/Tribune handles this as an exception. Rarely done, but has been done.

    I know that CBS planned these episodes carefully, to match up with sweeps month. This probably screws up when they intended to have the Red John story peak.

    To which I say karma is a ***** CBS :D

    It airs in Canada from 7-8 Eastern time. Canada frequently airs shows that are in the 10/9 block earlier than the US so people in the Atlantic time zone don't have to stay up until midnight to watch them. These airings are the ones that will typically be uploaded to the usual places.

    Yes, they need to be shown in order and since in Canada they have already aired this episode what do you think makes sense they air next week?

    Obviously they would air a repeat in Canada, and a "new" episode (S06E06) in the US.

    Unless they want to let Canada to continue 1 week ahead of the US.

    I know the "alternate means" version of Mentalist usually appears quite early in the evening (before Prime Time even starts); obviously it was out in the wild before CBS made the decision to bump it (because, I assume, football pushed it completely out of Prime Time, which seems to be the trigger for replacing a new episode with a rerun instead of just running late).

    Just checked CBS.com and it's not there. So all the indications are consistent with the report that everything is pushed back a week. So those who didn't see a repeat yesterday would see a repeat next week.
