    So, we're close to Season 1 ending. Does this mean the show's going on hiatus again?

    Hiatus? Of course it'll take a break, but I don't think it'll be on hiatus; haven't they already revealed a start date for season 2?

    Yeah, the way this is going, the tween-season hiatus is only going to be 3 months.

    What, so you'd rather episodes air incompleted?

    There will be another month gap after episode 20 because the crew still have to finish the next five/six.

    At the rate they're going we'll only have a one month break between season one and two. :rolleyes2 
    Honestly, I wouldn't mind it if they took a little longer to put out season two as long as they finished it completely first, none of this animating five episodes at a time crap. I've got a few friends that love watching TF: Prime and tune in every Saturday for a new episode only to be disappointed half the time.

    No new episode this Saturday. It always seems like they just get back and then they take another hiatus.

    After Darkness Rising it seems that their formula is:

    1 month- 2 episodes - 1 week- 3 episodes - 1 month-

    Personally I would prefer if they did 1 week yes 1 week no episodes, but I don't know how their schedule really is, only that they managed to make 2 year production in 10 months.

    They had ages for lead time, shows should air weekly as is the tried-and-tested television formula.

    Also I recall Orci saying something about how their plans were screwed up a little because of The Hub wanting to show all of Darkness Rising in one week.

    If you think about it, had they just started the series with one episode per week since Darkness Rising part 1 we would've had maybe ONE hiatus, it's more of The Hub's fault than Hasbro Studio's fault.

    I think I'd use the term season break because hiatus is the word Hasbro uses when they plan on killing something but don't want to break it to the fans.

    ....

    Yes... Yes.. That is exactly what I would prefer... /sarcasm

    No, obviously they should have scheduled things so that they could air the complete season on a weekly basis. If you make your audience play games with your show you will loose said audience.

    Are they actually losing anyone though? At least from what I've heard, there's been no significant ratings hits over the various breaks the show has had.

    Nope, always the same number floating around 90,000 to 115,000 even after the two breaks.

    Thing is, kids unlike fans don't go on Msn.com to look at new episode air dates, they just watch the episode of the day and enjoy it, no whining that it took four weeks for it to air.

    And The Hub's audience is mostly kids, considering 80% of the fans seem to be Youtube-ers.

    I don't get the Hub in Oz, so I watch it on Youtube.

    The episode release schedule confuses me. Suprised myself a couple days ago when I came onto these boards to find out there was a discussion on Crisscross. I didn't even know it was out :lol .

    Its called 4th of July weekend. AKA most people not sitting at home watching TV. Same reason you don't see new episodes Christmas week. They'll get better ratings on a non-holiday weekend.

    I hate these types of show schedules. Cartoon Network did it bad with The Clone Wars (especially Season 2), but I figured the Hub would have a bit better a schedule.

    Or maybe I'm just impatient.

    I can never understand why so many folks get upset when there's a couple weeks break between new episodes. Sure I wanna see all new stuff as well but I guess I'm just more patient than I thought I was since it doesn't bother me at all.
