Next on x Next in: Qual preposição utilizar

Hello guys! Today I was writing on (on or in?) a forum when the following question showed up:

"The next _ list is episode 2". Which preposition should I use in this case? and Why?

Ah.. these prepositions are really a nuisance.

Thanks in advance.

Otávio, today you were posting in a forum the following sentence :
"The next on the list is the episode 2"

Why:?
ON the list, because imagine a list and all the names of the episodes are written ON the paper (sobre o papel)
Well....you learn the prepositions reading books in English and etc. You just get used to them, and it's very much like the same in Portuguese, sometimes we get confused with them.
Thank you gabi! That's what I do! Reading books and watching movies in english have to become a habit to every english student. One day I will get used to prepositions :D
