Reports are that Fox had last-minute issues getting the rights to air "Bart the Lover." (Seems odd, but weird things can happen when syndication rights are involved.)

Episode that aired for me was something with Mr. Burns looking for a long lost love, Kent Brockman and Rachel Maddow, and Bart flying around in a basket tied to balloons.

The end had a card for Mrs. K. With her trademark "Ha!". When the recording started, the open was already to a [lengthy] couch gag.

The one that was "missing" ("Bart the Lover") was supposed to be on at 7:30 EST. What you're describing is the (expected) new episode.

I read that, too. Still disappointed; I was looking forward to seeing that one again.

It wouldn't be the first time; right after Michael Jackson died, Fox wanted to air the episode he was in, but it took so long to get the rights out of syndication that they had to wait another week before airing it.

What I don't understand is, if they couldn't get the rights to "Bart the Lover," how did they get the rights to "The Ned-liest Catch"? (The only thing I can think of is, "Bart the Lover" is on DVD while "The Ned-liest Catch" is not, and won't be for a few more years.)
