Did PYL ever start over, or did they go into 85/86 season?

Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not believe they have reached the last episode of the number of the shows they have ordered.

They currently are at 8/14/85, and are expected to go forward until 9/6/85.

So much for my hoping to get the second 'New Year's Eve' episode of PYL.

I've pretty much stopped watching that show on GSN since their 'right-up-to-the-end' credit crunches have started.

Cordially,

I've been annoyed with the up-to-the-end credit-crunching as well, but I'm glad it's still even airing -- they've aired some gems in these last few months.  My thought is that GSN will drop PYL after 9/6, especially after reading Tyshaun's post (see "Morning Schedule Change" -- the end of the cycle is predicted to be in mid-October).  I seriously don't think GSN will find it profitable to write another check to Fremantle to air another cycle of episodes, even if it was the 200 they just aired.  Perhaps the pay-per-view idea (I forget what its proper name is) will take off someday.

 Video on demand, or VOD.

And I'm still wondering--aren't networks required to show production company logos fullscreen contractually on first-run programming, even if they don't air the associated sounds/music?  Every other squeezeback/split screen I've seen of national services still has the logos fullscreen.  Sure, they're getting the money, but if I were Mark Cronin or Andrew Golder I wouldn't want my company's signature stuck in the lower-right-hand corner of the screen unrecognized.

Or the Christmas 1985 episode where Peter's dressed in a "Santa gown", or something to that effect.

What would be surprising if it is gone by mid-October is that this cycle of shows would have aired just once, while the first cycle aired about six times.

 Seems like it, although I can come up with one example that proves the rule: NBC doesn't show the production logos full-screen at the end of Leno and Conan.  Obviously, it's entirely possible that GSN writes their contracts a little differently than other networks.
