    I recently acquired a vintage edition of Newsday (Long Island, NY paper) from Thursday, Jan. 17, 1991 (through EBay), and in the television listings on page 99, there is a listing on WCBS (CBS2 in NYC) for an episode of Knots Landing that night; I cross-referenced to an episode guide, and there was no episode listed for that date. Could this listing, then, be for a repeat?

    The description in the listing seems to describe and episode from season 12 which was originally broadcast in 1991, beyond that I can't help you.

    I dunno
    Yup, it's a repeat - Knots aired a new episode on January 10th, then took a break until January 31st.

    Sounds like 12.14 "Simmer" (which aired January 10th) was repeated (or they just re-used that episode description).

    ETA: are you sure it's not for January 10th? L.A. Law also aired a new episode that night, but not a new episode on January 17th.

    If it was a repeat, then why was it not so indicated (with the "R" designation, which has generally been used in listings to indicate repeats)?

    Maybe it was pre-empted locally on the 10th and screened the following week instead.

    That's gotta be it-- maybe WCBS had some kind of special event or similar at that time last week, and decided to hold this episode over till the date of this paper.
