Advertisements Looking at the threads for the pilots of sitcoms it seems so many people turn them off or delete SP in the middle of the pilot show. I wonder if the fact that they have been showing us the best jokes from this episode since May is driving us away. I always give shows 2-3 episodes before making a decision. So I was wondering how could networks give their shows a better chance? I think airing them out of order is a huge mistake I also think using a proven show as a lead in is not a great choice either. My solution is to air sitcoms back to back. Give me the pilot then the next episode right after the first time you show it. I think this would hold peoples interest longer and give the show a better chance. Thoughts?
