This is ridiculous - how on Earth can the ABC no longer have the rights?
How can they lose the contract that soon?

Ok--they purchased the series with repeat rights last year. These had a limited window to be used within, for the reason which has become apparent--they wanted to sell the show to UKTV. I assume ABC looked at the ratings vs schedule and decided to let them lapse.
