First it was a four-month blackout for Revolution, NBC's sleeper post-apocalyptic drama. Now fans of NBC's biggest genre hit, Grimm, are finding out there'll be a long wait until the second half of the season debuts. The surging supernatural crime drama, which tweaked fans with a title-card that read "To be continued ... Sorry" at the end of its Nov. 16 midseason finale, won't start resolving those cliffhangers until March 8.

Fans of cable sci-fi/fantasy series have gotten used to protracted delays between the first and second halves of a so-called season, with Syfy in particular prone to delaying the resumption of season-long storylines for months on end. But the further creep of such chasmic bifurcation into big-league broadcast television is most unwelcome.
Meanwhile, the season 2 debut of Touch, which was originally supposed to air in October, only to be rescheduled for Feb. 1, has been pushed back further to Feb. 8. On that night Fox will air a two-hour season two premiere in which, among other developments, the action moves from New York to Los Angeles. Maria Bello will become a series regular as Lucy Robbins, mother of the gifted Amelia (Saxon Sharbino)
