It appears that a retune is needed on the TV that is not getting5USA on Channel 21. Other TV sets you may have that do get it probably have automatically retuned themselves - some TV sert do that without warning.

Don't know whether this is within your control,but I was baffled by 5USA not showing the final episode of Series 6.We all know the ending, but why show all 21previous episodes and not the last!Analogies are too obvious to make.
There was a screw-up with episode 20 following the 17th,but 5USA went back and showed 18,19 and repeated 20 before 21,so the running order was back.Then nothing!??!
It seemed and is illogical.

Ralph harvey: Logical channel number 21 was VIVA, this having moved to 74. 5USA was on 31, so if you still have VIVA on 21 then you can't have done a retune to reorganise the channels as per the new numbering and 5USA may therefore be still on 31.

Please put me out of my misery. On August 14 2015 5 USA CH 174 on Sky broadcast a Person of interest episode, S4 Ep 20. Now I realise you will be aware of other channels running series 3 as well. Is series 4 running now, as far as I can make out it hasn't been released yet.

I cannot find series 4 this in your listings. Can you explain? Or was it a mistake ?

mike castro: There is a full list of the current five seasons of episodes here (SPOILERS) List of Person of Interest episodes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - the listings are provided by the broadcaster. Looking at Channel 5's website - Episodes | Person of Interest | Channel 5 they are showing Season 3.

Please 5USA, can something be done re the continuity of episodes of NCIS, if just one time of the evening the proper rotation of the episodes would be sensible. ie at 7pm season 8 has just finished and this coming week we go back again to season 3 which has been shown at this time not
long ago. Why no season 9between between

At different times later episodes may been seen, but its impossible to really get the hang of the many
wonderful links between episodes. Its such a fabulous show, its a shame to mess it up.
