This was a fun article to write. I do worry that I overlooked an obvious example of a show aired more than once a week. So if you think of one please let me know. Otherwise, just enjoy my latest article, Broadcast Twice a Week (or More):
For the most part, network prime time television has focused on weekly programming, scripted or otherwise. Each week a new episode (or a repeat) is broadcast and then the following week another new episode (or another repeat) is shown. This has been the norm for more than six decades. In a few select cases, primarily during the first few years of the network television, some shows were aired more than once a week. In 1964, ABC’s Peyton Place burst onto the scene and changed everything, at least for a few years.
