Cult revolves around the premise that fans of a TV show (called Cult) become so obsessed that they form a real-life cult of their own, based on the crimes depicted in the show. Why couldn't Buffy fans have been so proactive?

OK, so the plot is pretty hard to follow, but the fact that the fake Cult and the actual Cult (the one that is being broadcast out of your TV screen) both air on The CW is kind of ingenious. Unfortunately, neither will be appearing on the network for much longer. The show, which premiered in February, was removed from the channel's schedule in April after its seventh episode. Now it's back, but don't get too attached; it looks like the CW is airing the final six episodes that they already filmed, but has no plans to create new content. What if, in retaliation for Cult's cancellation, its most loyal fans made a real-life cult based on the crimes depicted in the show? And then, what if The CW made a new show based on that cult!? Oh my god, it's a puzzle wrapped in a mystery inside of an enigma. It could go on forever. I've created a monster.

Cult will air two new episodes back-to-back starting at 8 PM on the CW. However, you might want to save the second episode for later, because TLC's Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids's fourth season premiere is at 9, and how could you miss that?.
