Tonight on 'Leah Remini': 'I just walked away from Scientology after seeing Leah's show' - 2017-11-07
Leah Remini's A&E series ends its "regular" second season of episodes tonight with a dramatic and deeply satisfying segment as Chantal Dodson's mother, Ramina Nunnelee, reveals that she has walked away from Scientology as a result of Leah's show.
But let's deal first with that programming note, because we know it's confusing, and confusing viewers is what A&E seems best at. Besides moving the series an hour later, to 10pm, in the middle of the season, A&E has always counted episodes in a confusing way. Ten "regular" episodes were filmed for the second season, as well as four "special" episodes.
Only nine of the regular episodes are airing because, as we revealed last week, one of the regular episodes featured three of the women who are accusing Scientology actor Danny Masterson of rape. The LAPD began investigating those claims a year ago, and in April the Los Angeles District Attorney's office got involved, but it still has not made a decision whether to file charges. The DA's office asked Leah not to air the episode as long as they were still investigating, and Leah asked A&E to respect that request. So by calling tonight's show the season "finale," it suggests that A&E has given up on the notion of airing the Masterson episode.
