NBC's "Revolution" is about six weeks into the four-month break between new episodes, but both the network and the show's producers profess not to be worried about how the long layoff will affect the show.
After Zap2it noted Sunday (Jan. 6) at the TCA winter press tour that the record for serialized shows ("The Event," "FlashForward," et al) taking such long breaks is pretty terrible, NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt replied, "Is it uniformly terrible, or uniformly terrible for terrible shows?"
It was a "safer play," Greenblatt says, to schedule the show in two big blocks (and also give it "The Voice" as a lead-in both times) rather than put it in a two weeks on, three weeks off pattern that a lot of series deal with in the winter and spring.
