V in trouble again. Expect to see fewer episodes

ABC is only going to show four episodes of its V remake this year before taking the show off the air until spring, following a complete halt in production earlier this year. ABC says the other nine episodes will eventually be shown, but TV insiders are apparently telling Variety the series' 13 episode order might get cut down:

Decision to launch the show with a four-episode sampler led to rumblings Thursday night and Friday morning that the show's episodic order had been reduced - something both ABC and producer Warner Bros. TV vehemently denied. Show will still produce 13 episodes this year, they stressed.

It's too bad V is having so many problems because a lot of people who have seen the pilot really like it, us included. Supposedly production on the show is going to start up again soon, so maybe by then they'll have worked out the kinks.
