Missing Gold Rush Season 7 Finale

Problem Solver

Missing Gold Rush Season 7 Finale

Please contact the Discovery Channel to provide Gold Rush episode 722 (the season finale from Friday 10th March 2017) to the On-Demand menus.

They did provide episode 723 that aired that same night, but it is more of a behind-the-scenes follow-up to the real finale, the missing 722.

Has anyone figured out why it's not there?

Re: Missing Gold Rush Season 7 Finale

Comcast: can you please provide us a status update on what Discovery Channel has told you about this missing finale episode?

A simple check of epguides.com shows:
a) the finale episode title is "Final Fury"
b) Discovery's posted episode numbering is one higher than the web site, but that shouldn't be a point of confusion for resolving this problem.

Probably because Comcast is trying to figure out how to charge us $5.99 for this last episode

People need to remember that the production company supplying the show has ultimate control of when a particular episode may be on the original channel, or any other form such as ON DEMAND.

 

By now you should have noticed that not only is it not on ON DEMAND, but it has not been reshowing on the original channel a week later before the next new episode (normal procedure during the seasonal run). This seems to be common practice for shows that may be getting better ratings. Especially for final episodes of a season.

Possibly. Or maybe they've just messed up. Post-season episode 724 was recently posted but 722 remains missing. Surely people care less about these extra "rehash the season" episodes like 723 and 724 if they didn't view the end of the series.

The "Final Fury" episode re-airs on Friday 31 March at 8 PM Eastern Time. Set your DVR. Then boycott watching Season 8 if there is one.
