THis has probably been discussed ad nauseum but I am curious, I live in the Philadelphia area, (NJ actually). Fox shows the same damn episodes constantly. Which is about 10 episodes. I am not exaggerating. The tennis court one, the food critic, simpons safari, new kids on the blech, bart on ridalin, praiseland and hungry, hungry homer and a couple more. Is it like this in other areas? I have stopped watching syndication.

Man, they must really hate you...


Some areas are like that. My Fox channel doesn't play any sindicated episodes, the WB channel does. But they do play roughly the same dozen epiosdes of King of the Hill...

Anywhere you're not
There's something seriously screwed up with WNAC-FOX 64 Providence. They used to air all the episodes from Seasons 1-13 in p-code order. Now they only air Seasons 11 - 13 in p-code order. I've seriously stopped watching them until they wise up (as the only 11 -13 episode I don't have on video at this point is BABF07, "Grift of the Magi"). Fortunately, WFXT-FOX 25 Boston seems to only be airing Seasons 1-8 with an occasional 9 or 10 thrown in. I've turned to them for all my taping needs.

Yeah my syndicate in Chicago needs to get out and start airing season 1-9 episodes instead of airing season 10-13 episodes again and again.

houston did the same thing, they said "see episodes you haven't seen in years! classic simpsons!" i think i was doing backflips when i saw homer defined instead of a tale of two springfields for the hundreth time.

Sometimes they go off and show episodes out of order. It really used to piss me off when I was trying to tape an episode. I'm pretty sure they're showing season 6 right now.

If I had dial-up and did not want to spend hours trying to get one episode and had to depend on a syndicator, I don't know what I'd do. I'd be especially pissed if they kept showing Season 10+ episodes over and over.
