Seems as though there's a random 4 minute episode of Grey's Anatomy ("Into The Fire") that's going to air at midnight tonight. It's scheduled to record via OnePass and it also shows up on TVGuide's listing...



I have so many questions... but, just why??

It shows up on titantv also. There is just a generic description. But nothing on zap2it. How far the mighty have fallen. Probably won't have SM. :D

A month or 2 ago, ABC played these little promos of some of its shows, including "This Is Us." Maybe 6-7 minutes long. Odd.
Yeah, I figured it had to be a promo of some sort. Gotham did one as well a few weeks ago. The difference though, was that Gotham's was to advertise the second half of the season, and it was also run during prime-time FOX programming. It preempted another show, was about 5 minutes long, and was picked up by the OnePass.

It's definitely odd they decided to run this one at midnight, right before they crank up the Ron Popeil infomercials for Chop-O-Matics and Smokeless Ashtrays. Is that really the demo they were after? Or was it just because the air time was dirt cheap?

First available spot.

For DVR users, why does it matter what time they air it? Overnight promos are smart from the network perspective, in terms of cheap airtime and “guaranteed” recording if guide data isn’t screwed up.

For me, too many of those mini episode promos just end up pissing me off, but I’m okay with the occasional sneak peak.
