CBS to air edited episodes of Dexter. The network has come up with a creative way to get around no new scripts by pilfering from its sister network, Showtime. The episodes start airing February 17, in time for sweeps.
CBS will air the episodes at the later 10pm [Eastern] slot on this and subsequent Sundays through the 12-episode first season.
On one hand, it sucks that they've figured a way to stall negotiating with the writers, but on the other, it's a great move for the wonderful show, which will now air to over 15 million potential new viewers.
I'm just wondering how much they can edit the episodes to broadcast standards and still have a show that matches the intensity of the original versions shown on Showtime.
