Since they just recently started shooting for SW Canada, I think it might be a bit longer. Can't wait to see what they pretend to find there!

Should be fun, eh?

I love the banter that goes back and forth here!  I agree that the shows are losing their luster, in fact I've found myself deleting new episodes before I even get to the end.  Storage Wars is getting so redundant, and Auction Hunters isn't even remotely believable anymore.  The "Pawn Shop" edition of Auction Hunters is barely watchable because it is so scripted.  It really can't be "stories of their best lockers" because it's in real time now.  Geesh, the last episode I saw they found a replica of an antique machine gun and a suit of armor worth 12K or something rediculous like that. 

The only problem is that new watchers might not be thinking the same as us seasoned watchers who are hoping they go away.  Only time will tell, but I get the feeling their demise will be sooner than later (I hope). :'(

One of the golden rules to remember is that for real syndication success you want around 5 years (i.e. around 100 episodes). 

How many episodes are they cramming into a "season" of each of these?  I suspect they will push to get each to 5 years to get enough episodes to make money syndicating.

Of course the "standard cable channel" world is different from network TV.  Syndication and rerun rules might change accordingly.
