Re: How Long Until BBC America Co-Production Happens?
This would be essentially one solid run, but with a month or so off for the winter holidays when viewership for weekly shows normally drops (which is why most shows go into reruns during this period). With only a couple weeks between any single new episode (because you have the Christmas Special in between) there is no need for a big campaign for the second half. I'm not sure if sweeps are still relevant, but it does also give them a presence during two sweeps periods this way.
