    According to CNN, Anthony Bourdain's show is supposed to premiere on April 14th at 9. Does anyone's guide actually show this, or does it show Piers Morgan instead?

    Amazing to me sometimes how the guide data fails. You'd think CNN would give the info to Tribune when they are promoting a show. I'll just keep checking the guide every once in a while. I'd rather set up a proper series link from the start.

    Either CNN or Tribune has now gotten around to changing this. It's showing up correctly now.

    First spot, Myanmar.

    I'm with you. I also looked for Bourdain's new show when I saw the promo. All I could find was what everybody else has found: Piers Morgan.

    I'm thinking that the problem is more likely to be with the guide providers than with CNN. But that's just me. At any rate, I'll look for it later today and if I find it I'll set a timer for it.

    I watched it and all of his shows are the same <yawn>. Same blueprint. I will keep watching it.

    Agree ... knowing what to expect is probably why I wanted to see it. Besides, I happen to like his "blueprint".

    I don't really understand why is CNN is making a big deal over this show. Maybe the Travel Channel is getting tire of him? I think his Layover show is well done.

    I don't know, toobs. I'm also waiting for another season of Layover and I agree it's well done. I guess one could speculate that Bourdain does not have an exclusivity clause in his contract with Travel. Hell, for all I know Travel might even belong to CNN! :sure:
