As far as I know there have been no announcements regarding Sket and Beelze. Anime generally are not scheduled for more than 52 episodes but are extended on a year by year basis. DGM ended because the TV station chose not to extend it for another year. We will probably have a better idea by March, if they have announced more than 52 episode titles. Go to the anime details page at Animenewsnetwork for something like that. I can't recall formal announcements for anime of that length though, the station just orders more episodes, there's no break in the broadcast, and everyone goes on with there lives.
I hate to ask the most asked question this week. I just want to know if there is going to be a chapter this week. Normally when SJ goes on break Manga Stream puts up a banner on their site but I don't see a banner. Does that mean that there will be chapter this week? I am quite sure that there will not be one next week because of the holidays.
I just want to be completely clear on this matter.
Officially, there is no chapter on december 26th (Monday), so no chapter on this week.
Early release around saturday is not certain. Can or cannot happen.
Hopefully it's next Wednesday, as usual. Drives me nuts when they release early. I'd rather go one week without chapters than get chapters early but have a two week gap. Especially with the next double issue coming up in two weeks.
Also, I did upload this one a long time ago, but there are some changes, so I'll upload again. It is assistant map of Shonen Jump and Jump SQ. authors (in Japanese; I'm too lazy to translate, someone else can translate this if s/he wants to):

I really prefer it to be a week off, then an issue, then another week off rather than two weeks off in a row.
Also, I think we should figure out if HXH will continue without going on hiatus at the end of the chapter in this issue. Also in the "next issue preview" part at the back of the magazine.
Unrelated, but I have a feeling Gintama will probably head back into hiatus in April (the anime), and as for Kaiten's comment, I think DGM ended more because they had caught up with the material due to Hoshino being on hiatus so often. Like Togashi and HXH, I have a feeling if DGM had a more normal serialization the anime might still be going.
If a series have more than 20 volumes, their anime-adaptation has higher chance to last more than 50 episodes; some of them even continue until 100 episodes, so we can expect they going to last for pretty long time.

^ This doesn't really bode well for the Beelzebub anime, if they plan to continue it with approximately 30 chapters remaining before catching up. >_>
I can't help but agree with Bomber about D.Gray-man though. A part of me thinks this is also why D.Gray-man hasn't gotten an anime continuation, you can never predict when the next chapter will come out.
Regarding Jump's hiatus, if scans get released early I can't help but feel bad that people spent well-deserved holiday time on translating and scanning stuff. I'd rather wait until after New Years like everyone else.
Three years I have imposed myself an issue-break-issue-break-issue-issue... cycle whereas the given premise was issue-issue-break-break-issue-issue cycle
I never break complained, whereas a whole part of the staff mocked my unlogical thinking, I enjoyed their break suffering
I suggest ST&RS is moving to Weekly Young Jump
I'm not sure Young Jump has the right audience for St&rs. Most of Young Jumps readers are in their mid-twenties, virtually none are under 17. While I am not saying adults can not appreciate St&rs, I am 33 and enjoy the series, but a magazine marketed towards readers who have already graduated college might not be the best place for St&rs to thrive.
