newpeat
 n.— «Get ready for the television “newpeat.” In an unusual experiment aimed at improving ratings for reruns, NBC next week plans to air two previously seen half-hour episodes of “The Office” that have been re-edited into a new hour-long show. Some scenes will be cut so producers can weave in unaired footage that introduces a new storyline into the older episodes.» —“NBC Remixes ‘The Office’; Reruns Become ‘Newpeats’” by Brooks Barnes Wall Street Journal Mar. 8, 2007.
