The Hollywood strikes may be over, but the companies that insisted on letting them go as long as they did by refusing to give they workers what they deserve are still scrambling to fill the holes in their schedules that they created with their stubbornness and greed. All of that is to say that Hulu’s Only Murders In The Building will air its entire first season on ABC—a regular TV network—starting on January 2.

The Hollywood Reporter says the show will air in two-hour chunks every Tuesday night for three weeks, until the finale airs in a one-hour chunk on January 23. That means ABC will be flying through the season, since watching two hours of a show every week isn’t really how most linear TV shows are broadcast, but January seems like a good time to do that. What else are you going to do, go outside? It might be cold and dark out, depending on where you live! You might as well snuggle up in front of the TV, make sure your antenna is pointed in ABC’s direction, and watch the first season of a TV show that has already aired several more seasons that you could watch right now at whatever pace you choose.


For those who only watch regular TV, know nothing about streaming TV, and only clicked on this because you were excited to see regular TV mentioned in the news for once, Only Murders In The Building stars Selena Gomez, Martin Short, and Steve Martin as residents of a wacky New York apartment building that becomes the site of a murder mystery. Together, they decide to both try and solve the murder and chronicle the experiences in a podcast. Oh, and if you’re the kind of person who only watches regular TV, a podcast is like the radio but you can listen to it whenever you want. Also, there’s a person famous from podcasts named Sarah Koenig… she’s not in the show, but you’ll get more of the jokes if you know who she is and how she talks.
