Get ready for a new AOL TV!

All of this will make it easier and more enjoyable to manage what you're watching, find out news about your favorite shows and discover new shows. Stay tuned!

Same problem here. TV listings are not loading. Nothing but a white screen. Been going on for 3 days now. Liked the old listings better. Never had this problem.

While I am on a rant about HuffPost, let me just say that their news is the last word in news. The writers can not get the news correct. That is to say that the subject matter is incorrect because the writer does not understand the subject matter. And finally the all time bonehead move is failure to get the story title to match the body of the story.

AOL TV HuffPost TV Listings is a piece of **** that never loads properly. Perhaps by calling it a piece of **** someone at ********@Large will do something to correct a problem at many have complained about & have not gotten a plausable answer much less a fix to the problem.

Same deal here. One day my local TV listings are there but not edited. The next day I see nothing but a blank white screen. Then another day I actually get the fully-edited local listings. Sometimes they tell me they're "Building My Listings". Then any combination of the above on any given day, in no particular logical order, and that tells me that AOL is tinkering with their TV website again.

And, yep, when I give them feedback all I I get is a generic response that has nothing whatsoever to do with my current problem.

Basically, you never know what you're going to get anymore when you sign into AOLTelevision. And it's been that way for a long time. My advice is to use the IMDb TV listings, instead. They're always up and running.

I just sent went to "send us feedback" on the AOL TV Listings site (for the 3rd time), and this time pasted the link to this page in my comment, telling them to look at all the people who are complaining the TV listings doesn't work. Probably they'll just send me their automated feedback email again. I get the impression that nobody at AOL TV is even reading the feedback they receive.

I bookmark my tv listings place and when I go back the next day I only get a blank. Also, why would you have the closing of a window process (double sideways chevrons) different from every other window in the world...very wierd and the sort of thing that gives aol a bad name.

I can not get the TV listing at all. There is no grid just a blank space & I have wasted close to an hour trying to bring it up. I expect more from AOL!
