CBS no longer airing FLASHPOINT  
As some of you may remember, Aaron filmed a guest starring role on the tv show FLASHPOINT. Flashpoint airs on CTV (Canada) and CBS (USA).

But ... CBS have given up the broadcast rights to ION. CBS will be airing their last episode of Flashpoint on August 19th. That will make 7 of the 18 episodes of season 4 aired (Aaron's episode is number 14 of season 4). ION will air (at a date to be determined) the remaining 11 episodes of season 4. The Flashpoint commercial running on the ION website says "coming this fall" but it doesn't say if it will be new or old episodes in the fall, or both.

If ION start airing the episodes from the beginning of season 1 (they've been given broadcasting rights to the whole show) then gods only knows when we'll get Aaron's episode. Fingers crossed the CTV are still airing new episodes *cough* torrents *cough*.

I live in Australia so I have no idea what ION is. Is this a channel that everyone in the USA can get?

ION is a cable channel that runs a lot of different shows.

CBS is seriously having issues with projects Aaron's involved in, aren't they?

I think Aaron is cursed. I heard earlier today that Syfy cancelled EUREKA. Aaron's episode (4x18: This One Time at Space Camp...) airs on August 29th.

EDIT: So anyone with a tv automatically gets ION? Or does 'cable' mean that you have to pay extra to get it?

No, cable means that you pay extra for it. It's not a movie channel, but it's in the cable lineup.

The last I'd heard about Eureka is that they were continuing with at least a partial season going into 2013. I think that was a couple of days ago tho...

ION have been given the broadcast rights for all seasons of Flashpoint so I have a feeling they'll probably start airing them from the start. Thank the Gods for torrents. We can just watch it after it airs in Canada.

I don't really care that Eureka got cancelled. As long as they still air Aaron's episode I'm happy. And besides they have to because it's THE WEEK OF AARON :)

I'll probably give the show a shot on ION, to be honest.

As for Eureka, which I just saw this morning got cancelled, it's not getting cancelled until the 5th season is over, so it's not like "zOMG! Cancelled nao!"

You don't usually watch Flashpoint? If ION do start airing it from the beginning definitely start watching it. It's one of my fabourite shows. I went total squee fangirl when Aaron told me he was going to be on it. The only thing that would get me more excited was if he was on an episode of PSYCH.

I don't think I've ever seen an ep of Flashpoint actually. I've heard of it, but that's about it.

Don't feel bad about that cough Meshel... That is literally the ONLY way I can watch Rescue Special Ops.... which I could not make it through the US summer without (even though Aaron isn't on it).

And Hamish & Andy. I love Hamish & Andy and I have NO IDEA WHY.

I'm an Aussie and even I don't watch RSO. But I *love* Hamish & Andy.

I have a really bad 'cough' :) I download ALL my tv shows. I can't even remember the last time I turned on a tv. I even download Hamish & Andy and it airs here.

Did you see the Mother's Day special segment they did years ago? Hilarious.

I've not gone down the youtube H&A rabbit hole yet.... but I totally think I saw this on one of their Christmas in November specials. I feel so bad for their moms but it's HILARIOUS. Also, that time that they became conjoined twins? You seriously have to love them to put up with the crazy stuff they do.

I don't pay for TV anymore either. It's naughty I know but I make a point of buying the DVDs for shows I really want to support. I wish there was a way, other than itunes which I refuse to support financially, to buy single episodes. Cuz I would totally do that for the shows that Aaaron guest's on.

Currently, ION's entire programming schedule is comprised of three shows: Criminal Minds, Without a Trace, and Ghost Whisperer (seriously, look at their schedule), with random movies thrown in here and there. It will be nice for them to have Flashpoint to give them some variety.

It's how I choose to watch CM, as I have more chance to see eps that I may have missed.
