Arena to show unaired B*tch In Apartment 23 eps before US

2013-03-20_1147Arena will screen ‘unaired’ episodes of The B*tch in Apartment 23 before they have screened in the US.

Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 (yep, those are the way the titles fall) was pulled from ABC’s schedule in January. 8 episodes, beginning with “The Leak,” have not aired in the US.

But “The Leak” screens in Australia at 8pm Monday night on Arena.

It’s not the first time this has happened, but it is a bit of a rarity.

  1. As disappointed as I am that this show was axed, I’m just happy that I will be able to see the remaining episodes. As for the title, the show should have been called ‘Apartment 23.’

  2. The US don’t have secondary channels full of failed shows so anything that is rating well enough to get bumped to Saturday night is gone. So it can be months, years or never before those episodes get aired (and they are often used to boost DVD sales).

    So this often happens when an Australian network airs a season that was dumped mid-season in the US. The contractual obligation not to show episodes that have been paid for before they air in the US is voided by the dumping.

    Seven showed the penultimate episode of S2 of Happy Endings (Kickball 2: The Kickening) last year. It was dumped from S2 in the US and then later used to make up part of the order for S3 this year.

    Arena airs the showt as “The B*tch in Apartment 23” if people are searching episode guides, because the Foxtel EPG doesn’t support such long titles.

  3. Yeah I really like this show, such a shame it got axed.

    I actually set the series link on foxtel a couple weeks ago, hoping it’d be the case they show the unaired episodes.

    So this is good news!

  4. Just found out this show got axed. So sad.

    Fox8 are showing the last 4 eps of 666 Park Avenue before the US so yeah it’s not the first time.

  5. According the wiki there are at least 8 unaired eps from this funny show, I hope Arena shows them all over the next 2 months.
