Stop playing "previously on" messages before Degrassi.

Starting in season 13, TeenNick began airing "previously on Degrassi..." segments before the new episodes.

That would be totally cool if the Canadian broadcaster, MTV, did it, too. But they don't.

This segment, sometimes half a minute long, is only the beginning of American viewers lagging behind Canadian viewers. The long commercials contribute and we end up being up to 5 minutes behind Canada's broadcast.

Years ago this wouldn't be a problem, but with thousands of people watching and live-tweeting/live-blogging the episode, it ruins the viewing experience for Americans because we already know what's going to happen if we live tweet, too. It's inevitable to see the tweets from our friends north of the border.

All I'm asking is that you stop airing the "previously on..." segments. Seriously. We all watch Degrassi -- religiously. We know what happens and we aren't going to forget within a week.

    Live tweeting is half the fun of the show, and I feel that fun has been taken from me.

    I'm a Canadian, but I feel your pain on this issue. We also have "previously on" segments, on some of our shows. Wastes up five perfectly good minutes on shit that we already knew about. I hope they remove this.
