Did CBS go off the air? Or is Rich just using a discount TV listing to write the post? Repeats or not, scripted shows deserve to at least be roecognized as being on the air, expecially for those of us who won't watch any of the reality shows.

Thank goodness CTV is running Lost at 7 tonight, so I can tape everything. Or else Glee would be history.

Since I get annoyed when shows are unnecessarily time shifted, I'll be watching ABC live and seeing FOX later on in the week.

Ah, I think Tuesday's will now be known as the day my DVR melted. At least Discovery is on an east coast feed. That helps.


Thank Jeevus for basic cable repeating shows through the week (and OnDemand, and Hulu)

Great job again, just one little typo
"FOX: 'Glee' -- Stars at 9:28. Stupid FOX!"
Should be "Starts"
