Just a few S2 stats I forgot to include, andserenography  was awesome enough to do Clark/Tom's screentime averages for S2-S7, and I wanted to share those stats.

First, the averages

Here are the per episode averages for 2 through 7 for Tom/Clark.


S2
Clark - 22m54s
Tom - essentially same

S3
Clark - 22m19s
Tom - 22m56s

S4
Clark - 21m51s
Tom - 22m17s

S5
Clark - 20m37s
Tom - same

S6
Clark - 17m9s
Tom - same

S7
Clark - 16m41s
Tom - 18m21s

So, definitely a drop in screen time for our guy.

Just in case anyone needs to know (or questions the numbers), the formula used is:

Minutes x 60(to convert to seconds) + remaining seconds = total seconds for season (TSS).
TSS divided by #of episodes = seconds per ep (SPE).
SPE divided by 60 (converting back to #minutes).
Decimal remainder x 60 to convert to #seconds.


Addtional S2 stats:

The longest episode of S2 was Accelerate at 43m, 30s
The shortest episode of S2 was Redux at 40m, 11s

The highest and lowest screentime tallies for each character:

Clark:
Highest:  Rosetta, 33m, 26s
Lowest:  Precipice, 16m, 8s

Lex:
Highest:  Precipice, 18m, 20s
Lowest:  Fever, 4m, 17s

Lana:
Highest:  Accelerate, 21m, 53s
Lowest:  Insurgence, 4m, 10s

Chloe:
Highest:  Rush, 21m, 18s
Lowest:  Suspect, 1m, 28s

Pete:
Highest:  Duplicity, 15m, 40s
Lowest:  Calling, 32s

Martha:
Highest:  Insurgence, 21m, 23s
Lowest:  Witness, 58s

Jonathan:
Highest:  Fever, 17m, 24s
Lowest:  Accelerate, 1m, 49s

Lionel:
Highest:  Prodigal, 17m, 18s
Lowest:  Vortex, 4m, 30s




Hmmmm, now the question becomes...can she actually complete S1 before SV returns for its hiatus?

Oh wow, the numbers really dropped! And he really had 33 minutes in one episode?

Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, that was a big episode for him. I doubt anything will beat Labyrinth though as far as screentime goes.

Doesn't it seem like a travesty to make actors come in for that kind of screentime? I remember thinking that with AOT's screentime in Justice, and totally understanding why she got so fed up, that after she left, she never looked back.

I'm shocked by the 32s by Pete they really underutilized his character.

He had eps like that in S3 too. They treated him so badly.

Poor Sam relegated to product placement.

More interesting numbers! Some of those lows are truly appalling. I wonder if those episodes had deleted scenes that would have given those characters more time, or if they actually handed them a script with almost nothing for them to do in it. Although if they get paid a set amount per episode, maybe they were glad to have even one line!

Thanks for posting these, and thanks to Rene for the averages!

I know thats sometimes the case. For instance, Martha had an appallingly low screentime in Progeny, but there was a whole scene between her and Clark that was cut. But sometimes, there's no way to know, but there aren't any deleted scenes from the eps on the DVD. I really think they just screwed SJIII. For some reason, they just couldn't write for the character. And when they did, it was pretty hit-or-miss.

I can't believe they even bothered to use Pete in an episode if it was for 32 seconds. Maybe he had some other scenes that were cut out?

I think it's a travesty to only have Tom/Clark in an episode for 16 minutes.

Martha had that kind of screentime in Justice. I don't get what the point is.

Well, if you think its a travesty to only have Tom/Clark for 16m in an episode, than S6 & S7 must give you fits. Because he dipped under that number quite a bit.
