Are we done with Harvey's new episodes?
According to the pdfs that just came out for the month of July, not one of the Harvey Feud episodes are new, even on Wednesday nights. According to the press release back in March, GSN acquired more than 300 episodes of Harvey Feud. That's not all from the 2010-11 season, but probably also part of the 2011-12 season too.
This can't be it. Maybe the episodes are taking a Summer Break for some reason, because I can only imagine having 100 episodes or less of new runs since March
Have they aired all of the first season? With the second season episodes, my best guess is that they got the rights to at least some of them, but can't air them until September when the new season starts.
I think we'll have to wait a while for the 2011-12 season, at least September. If I were GSN I would wait a little longer, because they are very recent. I hope that's not it for the 2010-11 seasons.

It's no surprise, though; there's only a relatively small amount to choose from.
I'm not sure if those episodes at 5 and 5:30pm were new for a while, during April and May. I think they were but I'm uncertain. They've been new Wednesday nights every week for six episodes.
Otherwise I could figure out how many episodes we've seen (6 a week times the numbers of weeks since March 28th)
When GSN announced they picked up more than 300 episodes of Harvey's Feud, that means they may have picked up the equivalent of 2 seasons. If I remember correctly, the 2011-12 season had only 150 episodes, and Harvey's first season had 165 episodes. That's more than 300 episodes for that version so far. But seeing that the 2011-12 season is still airing in reruns until September, I wouldn't expect GSN to start airing that particular season until sometime in the fall, at least. I'd say GSN will air it before Halloween.
Yes, folks, brace yourselves for a summer of rerun abuse of Harvey's first season.
Ok we have not been through 165 new runs yet. The pdf's may change, and this hasn't been set in stone. So that fits what GSN says (165+150=315).

Because, with the block scheduling, it's easy to burn off the shows. Harvey airs on Wednesdays 6pm - 12am ET. That's 6 hours plus reruns from earlier.
It's good to see GSN doesn't rerun the 5pm hour at 12:30am and 1am though. Harvey may do well on Wednesdays in the block scheduling, but it could do just as well without it being in block scheduling. There is such thing as overdoing it. Like with Dancing with the Stars. It could have done well if it was not on the block schedule plan. But, who wants to sit there and watch episodes when people could possibly know who the winners are already? But, still. Dancing could have done well on a Saturday at 8pm plus a results show. But, that's beside the point. I'm glad it doesn't air regularly on GSN anymore.
I always say, there is such thing as overdoing it. It's true. Harvey may do well but, I'm stating the facts as I see them. Block scheduling is good for some networks, but not for GSN it seems. I notice Lifetime does block scheduling in prime time every day it seems.

Harvey is the only block that's really doing that well in prime time. Otherwise, everything else is doing poorly. But everything is going to dramatically change in prime time with Beat the Chefs, and American Bible Challenge in August.

But it looks like about 8 weeks of massive Harvey reruns. Hopefully they'll still pull decent numbers.
