NewsFlash: New/Old Fringe Episode

SciFi Wire reports that FOX is airing a "missing" Fringe episode Monday, January 11th. The episode is rumored to be from the first season, but it's also rumored to be a weird attempt by FOX to quash the ratings for Heroes.

The synopsis makes the episode sound like a stand-alone, but I think there might be more to it: 01.11.10 looks more like binary than an air-date, and has some interesting numeric resonances with 02.02.2010. I will review it, of course, as well as the regularly-scheduled Fringes that begin on January 14th.

Does Fox even need to try to quash Heroes ratings? Looks to me like they might be trying to see how well Fringe performs on a different. Hopefully it will do well and they’ll move it off Thursdays. A 24/Fringe combo perhaps.

That's a good idea, Mark. Especially as Thursdays are such a busy TV night...

Then again, moving Fringe to Mondays might interfere with Gossip Girl. Yes, I watch and love Gossip Girl, and I have no shame.
