    Google search starts listing TV episodes and air dates in results

    Think of this as IMDb baked into your Google search.

    Today, everyone's favorite Search giant from Mountain View announced that users seeking information about their favorite shows, or those just curious about specific series, will now find detailed episode listings within their results.

    Good news! Maybe DIRECTV can dump Tribune Media Services and give us accurate Guide info.

    That's because Google is probably getting their data from Tribune. :D

    It could be very annoying as TV shows have names that are kind of general.

    I typed in "revolution" and the results were focused on the TV show. I tried "castle" and it was the same kind of results. Why would that be a problem? Well, I typed in "blacklist" and got to page 20 of results and got not one link to the McCarthy Era blacklist. Good luck learning anything.

    In contrast, when I typed in "Roswell" it didn't give me the "TV Show" view. It did offer it as an option off to the right that got me there.

    Google could outsmart themselves one of these days....
