I watch shows like Pawn Stars, American Restoration and Count's Customs on History channel. Recently (as in 2-3 weeks ago) they announced the shows would "return in 3 weeks" and have not aired an episode since. Archer (FX channel) did the same thing. I don't regularly watch other shows so I have no idea if any others followed suit.
I understood when American Horror Story: Coven took a break during the holiday season, but not this.
So why the 3 week delay?
