LOS ANGELES, April 4, 2013 – FX will post the most recent episode of The Americans (aired on Wednesday, April 3) on www.FXnetworks.com for encore online viewing due to an error by its publicity department (http://vod.fxnetworks.com/watch/theamericans/24079939847)
Last night’s ninth episode of The Americans, “Safe House,” aired from 10:00 to 11:07 PM ET/PT. The correct listings information was not properly disseminated to television listings services that provide information to media outlets, cable and satellite providers. As a result of the error, electronic guides which trigger the run times of DVRs incorrectly recorded the total running time of one hour (10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT), therefore cutting off the final seven minutes of the episode.
“The error is regrettable and I apologize to all the loyal fans of The Americans who were cheated out of the full viewing experience of one of the most important episodes so far this season,” said John Solberg, Senior Vice President of Media Relations, FX Networks. “Unfortunately mistakes happen and this happened to be a very unfortunate time for this kind of mistake. I hope the viewers whose DVRs failed to capture the final seven minutes of the episode will take advantage of the opportunity to watch the encore run on FXNetworks.com and see the spectacular ending.”

Next week’s episode “Only You” (Episode 10) airs April 10, 10:00-11:03 PM ET/PT – Stan pursues a lead that puts him on the trail to one of Gregory's crew members, closing the gap between him and Elizabeth, and reigniting some of the deepest conflicts between her and Philip. Written by Bradford Winters; directed by Adam Arkin.
