"ER" Makes Rerun-Free TV

ER-vic.jpgIf you're an "ER" fan, you can't afford to miss one episode of the 13th season -- literally. Sorry I don't have any spoiler info, but Zap2it says that next season will run without any reruns.

The move is an attempt to boost interest in the long-running series. It's not the huge hit it used to be, but the show still averages a very respectable 16 million viewers each week. As a fan, I'd have to say -- I am not giving up now, but I appreciate the lack of reruns. They just don't work with a show like this.

There was a rumor that the long-running drama would be moving its timeslot, but it was just that -- a rumor. Instead, the network plans to run 13 episodes in the fall, without any repeats. Expect a big cliffhanger before the new drama, "The Black Donnellys," takes over the timeslot. "ER" will then return in April 2007 to finish out the season.

"The Black Donnellys" is the story of Irish mobsters from Robert Moresco and Paul Haggis, who both co-wrote Best Picture winner "Crash." (Haggis directed the film as well.)

The 12th season of "ER" wraps up Thursday at 10:00 p.m. (EST) on NBC. -- Rachel Cericola
