NEW YORK – Devoted Alias fans are outraged over ABC's last-minute decision to air a repeat of the show on Sunday night -- opposite Game 7 of the World Series -- after promising all week to show a new episode.
A show spokeswoman called it a "last-minute decision" that was made in the 7th inning of Saturday's game -- when the Angels staged a come-from-behind rally to force a Game 7.
But Alias fans say they were robbed.
"I am super annoyed that tonight is a rerun," wrote "bristowannabe" on ABC's Web site.
The network had heavily hyped Sunday's new chapter in the saga of super-spy Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner), and the episode was still listed as new on ABC's Web site on Sunday.
"If ABC lies again, I will personally whack every exec over the head with a fish," wrote a fan who calls herself "spygirl" on the site.
And, in a show that revolves around conspiracy theories, many fans wondered if ABC's decision was made because it owns the Anaheim Angels -- who ultimately beat the San Francisco Giants to win their first-ever World Series.
"Since the [Angels] were playing Game 7 of the World Series televised on Fox, it wouldn't have been a good idea to have two shows Disney has an interest in to air against each other," theorized "cardinalrulz8."
