There is perhaps nothing more frustrating than when networks and streamers drop the ball on programming for young shows.
That’s what happened with Quantum Leap last night.
We were supposed to get a new episode (Family Style) after another break according to promotional materials and advertising.
But instead, TV listings had a rerun of Magnum PI playing.
And as of noon on Tuesday, the latest episode was not available on Peacock. Which is why you won’t find a review on it this week here.
I wasn’t the only one. Many other viewers were also left hanging..
Last night’s episode of #QuantumLeap isn’t on @peacock!
What’s that about?

When does new episodes of #QuantumLeap get released? It's getting annoying trying to watch this show and it's never on. Every other week they're on a break for something. It's like @nbc's trying to cancel Best way to do that keep it off TV so we can't find it..

Really starting to feel like NBC is playing some Firefly games with #QuantumLeap. It's schedule is so wildly erratic that I'm just at a loss for when it's supposed to air. I *want* to watch it, but… when?

Was all ready to watch #QuantumLeap and instead I got a rerun of the season premiere of #MagnumPI that I'd already seen. What's up with that, @nbc?

No wait, it’s a rerun of last night’s Season Premiere. pic.twitter.com/DfDPh1VBtp

even though it’s been 55 minutes, still gonna mention it just cuz i forgot:
NBC replaced tonight’s Quantum Leap with a re-airing of yesterday’s Magnum P.I. (without announcement.)
Quantum Leap will now return on February 27th.#QuantumLeap

So sad that the new episode of Quantum Leap is not airing tonight. I totally want to know what's going to happen after the last episode’s shocking ending. Can't wait for next week! #QuantumLeap

I don't know what it is about tonight, but nothing about #WWERaw has been hitting its mark for me….I was going to change the channel and watch #QuantumLeap instead, only to find that it's not on tonight.

Maybe Ben can leap into the body of an NBC executive and make sure this show gets handled properly.
