"The Americans" S2 premiere date set...

Feb. 26 marks the start of S2 on FX...

And, according to that article, the two lead stars are apparently now involved with each other...

Fx has been advertising the premiere date for the last couple of months.

Maybe you should. Then you wouldn't have to resort to having other people tell you what's going on.

I generally don't either, but when I see one for a premiere date for a show I watch I tend to pay attention.

I don't have a Tivo anymore. I have a HTPC with a commercial skip function. I can have it set to skip them automatically or do it manually with a single button press of the remote. I do it manually in case something like this gets aired and I don't want to skip past it. Skipping all ads isn't always the best thing to do.

FX has not been advertising the premiere date for several months. They may have been teasing that S2 was coming soon, but there was no official date until FX announced it on Dec. 26.

Christmas came 364 days early for fans of The Americans! Earlier today—of all days—FX finally announced a Season 2 premiere date for The Americans after keeping us all in the dark for far too long. Ready? Put a big old hammer and sickle on your 2014 Kittens Sitting on Things calendar for February 26 at 10pm, because that's when the Jennings return.
Or I suppose it's possible it's just a coincidence that every single news outlet that covers entertainment news reported the S2 premiere date on Dec. 26.

The commercials I saw, during Sons of Anarchy, only said "Coming February".

Yeah it is It's always best practice. That said, I watch enough live sports that I see commercials. And a few slip past the goalie as well.

Great news about S2. It's a show I always forget about when posting in the "What should I watch?" threads.

Yep, that's the one I'm referring to. Most preview ads don't divulge the exact date until it's almost upon us. I generally check websites like The Futon Critic for specific dates.

As for skipping ads, if I skipped all of them I would probably miss out on a lot of new shows. I also enjoy watching movie trailers on occasion. There are a couple of new shows coming this summer on TNT (or is it TBS?) that look interesting. One is called "Legends" and the other is "The Last Ship". I've already set up a Wishlist for both shows in WMC. Same goes for "Helix" on SyFy.

I would have never known about them if I skipped the ads altogether. There are also a few commercials that are worth watching on occasion just for their entertainment value. I could generally care less about whatever product they're selling.

Really liked this show. Altho it's been so long I'll hardly remember anything about the storyline. What happened to the hot Russian chick who slept with the FBI guy?

Her allegiance to the Soviet Motherland was re-awakened when she realized the FBI had something to do with her colleague's death... although how she decided that, I'm not sure.

She confessed her involvement to her Consulate-boss, and she is going to try to use Mr. FBI guy.

Oh, and Mr. FBI guy will undoubtedly enjoy being used, several times a night.

And she also went to NYC for a bit to pose as the ice skater girlfriend of a Russian mobster.

Wow, didn't realize that was the same person. Cool. I really like both shows (White Collar being the other for those who didn't get the reference).
