Showrunner Rockne S. O'Bannon tweeted the news that the six unaired episodes of canceled genre series Cult will air in two hour blocks on Friday June 28, July 5 and July 12 on the CW.

    @Dave – The 8 unaired Apartment 23 episodes are available on Dan S was just wondering if ABC would ever burn them off on tv and I said that since the episodes have been released online, it’s not likely that ABC would broadcast them in addition which is a shame.

    Only on “teh CW”.

    Is the older guy from cult the guy who played wild thing in that old movie. My hubbie is like a decade older than me so we have seen a lot of really old movies if he is he used to be a hottie.

    Since The CW doesn’t run programs on Saturdays, this is their idea of a “Saturday burn-off”.

    If “Cult” had been on ABC, CBS, or NBC, the show would have been burned-off on three mid-Summer Saturday nights.

    Note that one of the airdates is July 5th; which is in the middle of both the extended July 4th weekend and vacation week for most Americans.

    July 5th may well set a new record for the fewest people to watch broadcast-network TV on a Friday night since the mid-1950’s; and the next night (Saturday, July 6th) may set a mark for the fewest people to watch broadcast-network TV on any night since the early 1950’s.

    In fact, the total combined broadcast and cable viewership on July 5th may be the lowest for any Friday night since the middle 1950’s; and the 6th may have the lowest combined broadcast/cable viewership for any night since around 1955!

    Except for concert and fireworks specials on the 4th, the weekend of July 4th-7th may set historically-low viewing levels.

    After it’s run will Nikita go back to repeating on Friday the 19th?

    And do we know when Top Model starts? I thought it was supposed to be in August

    @Ram510 – It’s not confirmed but its likely that Nikita and Supernatural will go back to repeating on Fridays when Cult is over. However its good because original Cult episodes preempt Nikita & SPN which will likely repeat through September should CW stick to their model of October premiere dates for their series. Also it’s not confirmed when ANTM begins but if CW was smart they would begin the season in late September rather than August so new episodes can air through December.

    It was a smart decision for them to put it on the fall schedule even if its paired with the likely to be cancelled Carrie Diaries.
