'The Event' hiatus: Long nap or death sentence?


"The Event" wraps up the first part of its season on Monday (Nov. 29), and if you're among the show's (dwindling number of) fans, what comes next should be of concern.

Because what comes next is three months of nothing -- and recent TV history has not been kind to shows that go off the air for a substantial length of time in-season.

After Monday's episode, "The Event" will go away for three months before returning Feb. 28 for a 12-week run to conclude the season. (New drama "The Cape" will fill the 9 p.m. Monday spot in January and February.) We get at least some of NBC's thinking in giving it the break -- serialized shows like "The Event" don't tend to repeat well, and the network can use its late-season NFL games (including the first round of the playoffs) to hype "The Cape" and hope people tune in.
