Pushed aside?

I have to wonder what ABC is thinking. I just read that they were planning on showing a couple of episodes of V this weekend as a way to refresh people's memories/bring in new fans for when the show returns in a couple weeks. This all well and good until....they decided it would be better to show an encore of the Dancing With the Stars premiere.

I'm not a fan of showing stuff twice in the same week on the same channel as it is, but to push something out of the way that hasn't been on the air since before the holidays for something that just aired on Monday. On top of that, it was one of the highest rated shows on Monday night.

Usually when a network will show something again in the same week it is because it didn't do well in the ratings or to fill up space. I have to wonder what ABC's motivation is behind this. Are they trying to kill V, one of the best new shows this season, much in the way they've killed Pushing Daisies and Ugly Betty.

Whoever it is that's running things over there needs to be smacked around for this decision, that's for sure!
