Ugh. Late fall turns into mid-Winter, just as I figured it would. Like I've said a hundred times already, they should have started with season 47, which would have been fully financed and produced by HBO. Does the 9 months include January? Either way, it's going to be almost a year before episodes that were supposed to air a month or so ago if the HBO thing didn't happen. I sincerely hope they didn't shove too many at the moment pop culture bits in there.
