Law of averages

Tonight I managed to watch two Simpsons episodes that were actually broadcast on Fox. It’s a treat for me, I don’t usually get to watch them as they unfold. I rarely see them until they are in syndication and/or available on DVD.

So why is it when I’ve seen three whole episodes on live tv in the past year, that two of the one’s I’ve already seen are the two that Fox shows tonight during prime time.

Funny how that works. I’m absolutely sure that the next time I get to watch The Simpsons on live Sunday night broadcast, it’ll be that other episode that I’ve already seen.
