How about 39 weeks of new episodes from about Sept. - May and 13 weeks of selected reruns in the summer? i.e The series never went off the air. (1950's - mid 1960's).Mike Lang us older ppl remember when TV shows went from September to late spring with NO reruns and only a little gap around Christmas!
You're right there were reruns during the summer otherwise we got a new ep every week. Not all the off and on we see now when they try to stretch 18 or 20 eps for a whole season.How about 39 weeks of new episodes from about Sept. - May and 13 weeks of selected reruns in the summer? i.e The series never went off the air.

Your problem is that you are watching Canadian channels. I get 58 channels reliably in Windsor/Detroit, tons of sports, first run programming. If you are in Central Canada somewhere not near the border, you have to deal with 22 Minutes and reruns of Corner Gas, that's if you get that many channels.In the next 10 to 20 years you will see lot's of cable channels closed and removed from cable tv, if it still exists in 20 years.
OTA channels are already in bad shape and have a hard time vs , FAST internet channels like Tubi.tv and Pluto.tv .
For a new tv viewer why put up an antenna ? , when you can steam it all off of FAST channels that offer complete seasons on demand and endless free movies .
I took the effort to install a OTA antenna in 2010 , but frankly the quality of OTA content has been lagging the last 12 years.
If you look at old OTA tv schedules from 2010 you will see we lost CTV late night movies , all CBC late night movies gone , All movies from CITY TV gone except for some holiday movies and a few romance movies , all the late night movies from ACCESS tv gone , RDTV had some late night movies and usa syndicated programming that station was closed by GLOBAL tv.
I could care less what happens to cable tv, but will OTA tv still be around in 20 years in Canada ?
The tv network owners have put in great effort to weaken OTA programming and sink the OTA channels.
You might also get the NextGen TV channels when they come to Detroit providing your tv supports it. I imagine it will be years if ever that NextGen tv comes to Canada and I don’t see any of the Canadian broadcasters supporting it.Your problem is that you are watching Canadian channels.
