Discussion in 'TV Show Talk' started by IndyMichael, Mar 12, 2009.
it's Tuesday so:
Mentalist & Without a Trace
Those two for us + Dancing, Idol and L&O:SVU.
Past weekend, pulled Batman B&TB on Saturday and BSG, Unit, Iron Chef America and Amazing Race on Sunday.
Tuesday's are empty for me until Fringe returns in April.
We miss that one too. Surprising to me, my wife loves it! /steve
Reaper and The Mentalist
Tuesday night list
Without a Trace
Homeland Security USA would also be tap for tonight but appears to be a double of episode of Dancing with the Stars.
L&O:SVU had been a long time series link but the show fell off after the first couple of episodes as we grew tired of how the episodes started to focus more on Olivia and her ordeal. We'll still record it if there is nothing else on...
Trust Me (2 new episodes on TNT tonight)
Without a Trace
Law & Order: SVU
Dancing with the Stars
Still stacked up from Sunday and Monday, so I have no idea what we'll actually watch tonight.
Tomorrow night, Wednesday, from our online recording schedule (pink highlight means definite season shift):
Not to hijack this thread, but is that a Dish remote-web scheduling application? Or something you built on your own? TIA. /steve
I didn't record or watch anything last night, but this morning at 3:30 I watched "So This Is Washington, " a Lum & Abner movie I recorded a while back.
Tomorrow morning it's probably "Strange Hostel of Naked Pleasures," a Coffin Joe movie.
Wednesday = Criminal Minds, CSI:NY, Life on Mars, & Mythbusters
Additionally, We will be DVRing the sneak preview of "The Great Buck Howard"
Lie to Me
Better Off Ted
The Great Buck Howard
Another busy night for us, but will probably be the week-end before we get to all to all of them. Lie To Me, Scrubs, Better Off Ted, Idol, Criminal Minds, Life, Life on Mars, L&O, CSI:NY.
Assuming they are both first-run, I will watch the two "Life's" ASAP.
Monday: CBS Comedy Lineup, Castle, Chuck
Wednesday: Gary Unmarried, Lost, Better off Ted (new show, giving it a try)
Sunday: Amazing Race, The Unit
I wish it were a remote scheduling application. I do it manually every Saturday using a template. When I first did it, schedules didn't change all that much - there were essentially two seasons with a few mid-season changes. Now I feel like every six weeks I ought to start over again with a blank.
And I can't rely on just one on-line guide any more. I use Zap2It as the base because (1) it's the Tribune Company's guide which Dish (and Direct) uses and (2) I can easily see 6 hours and they clearly mark the first appearance of cable channel shows as "new". Then I have to compare it to TV Guide to figure out what the Tribune folks might have wrong. Then, if I have doubts, I can check the TitanTV guide as the tie-breaker.
Fortunately, I'm retired. I get up in the morning with nothing to do and go to bed at night with it half done.
:lol: Gotcha. I'm a DirecTV user, so unfortunately no three simultaneous recordings for me I find I have to check the HR2x GUIDES almost daily to make sure that network moves haven't wreaked havoc with my Series Links. Not sure how Dish does it, but DirecTV will put symbols in the GUIDE next to shows that are scheduled to RECORD (or not, because of a conflict). I could also visit the "TO DO" list, but I find the GUIDE method quicker for re-scheduling recordings that are unexpectedly in conflict. /steve
