I noticed (or rather...my TIVO noticed) that in addition to the finale episode which airs on Sunday at 8:30, the pilot of the show is running at 9:30. So I did a search and got the following information which makes me think that they'll be running the entire first season sequentially during the summer to capture folks who weren't lucky enough to see it the first time around. I think I mised the first 3 episodes, so I am thrilled if this is the case.

The sigh-of-relief news: One of those lineups includes "Arrested Development," the Ron Howard-produced comedy that has built a small but passionate audience on Sunday nights. "Arrested" returns in November to its 8:30 p.m. Sunday time slot and will also air in repeats this summer.
I wish it were getting a different time slot (8:30 listed above is in Central time, it's 9:30 Eastern). It conflicts with Alias AND Sopranos, and loses the battle of being third in a house capable of recording 2 things.
In case you've missed the commercials, please note that FOX will be airing "the missing episode", "Let Them Eat Cake", this Sunday 6/6 at 8:30pm Eastern.
Since this doesn't conflict with Alias or the Sopranos finale, you MUST WATCH.
And Sunday at 9:30, set your VCR's to catch the re-airing of the pilot episode, which will catch you up on how this all started. The entire season of AD will re-air Sundays at 9:30pm Eastern, beginning this Sunday.
I'm all over this. And can't wait to see the first several eps on rerun that I missed last year. :)
I think this is one of Fox's best shows.Looking forward to Sunday's season finale. :heart
:yay I only started watching this towards the end, so I'm glad I'll be able to catch the ones I missed.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox's struggling freshman comedy "Arrested Development" reaffirmed its status as the critical darling of the 2003-04 season with a leading five nominations for the 2004 Television Critics Assn.'s awards.
Perennial favorites HBO's "The Sopranos" and Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" snagged four nominations each, with another freshman series, HBO's "Deadwood," and the HBO miniseries "Angels in America" next on the list, raking in three mentions each.
HBO led the network pack with a total of 14 nominations, followed by Fox with nine and NBC with five.

"Arrested Development" and "The Daily Show" were also up for best comedy series along with HBO's "Sex and the City" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and BBC America's "The Office."
It's a dark drama series field, with "The Sopranos" and "Deadwood" facing off with FX's "The Shield," HBO's "The Wire" and Fox's "24."
