‘Fringe’ repeat offers sneak peek

Encore to offer glimpse of second episode

Fox will pad out this Sunday’s repeat of the “Fringe” premiere by airing the first four minutes of the series’ second episode.

Fox scheduling chief Preston Beckman compared the ploy to the end of a mystery novel, when publishers frequently print the first chapter of the next book in order to tease up more interest.

“Fringe” will also be preceded by an extended scene from the upcoming 20th Century Fox feature “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” as well as a preview of the two-hour November TV movie “24: Redemption.”

Fox is using the “Fringe” teaser (which will air directly following the episode) and the “Day the Earth Stood Still” and “24: Redemption” clips in order to fill out the full 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. block on Sunday.

That’s because the “Fringe” premiere clocks in at an hour and 35 minutes. Fox is airing a special edition of “Hole in the Wall” to fill out the rest of the two-hour block tonight.

The full second episode of “Fringe’ will air in its normal time slot on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. “24:Redemption,” meanwhile, airs Sunday, Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. And “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly, opens in theaters on Dec. 12.
