Oh, ABC isn't the only network that does this. Fox does it as well. The Finder
airs them out-of-production-order sequence as well. They've yet to air the 2nd one.
CBS has aired some episodes of Hawaii Five-0
and Blue Bloods
out-of-order as well.
It is a disease that needs to be cured.
Futurama fans will attest to just how badly FOX can mess up a show's order.
(It's probably the only show list on Wikipedia that most everyone agrees should NOT be listed in airing order)
But at least that show isn't heavily serialized - to do what ABC just did with Pan Am with 1 episode is just ridiculous.
Of course then there's ABC's attempt to get into animated shows with Clerks, and they completely destroyed any chance that show had just by stupid decisions like airing the 4th episode first, then the 2nd episode second, which included lots of references to the 1st produced episode... without ever actually airing it beforehand...
