I really couldn't figure out where to put this, but tonight's scheduling turned into a difficult job because of networks shifting off the hour and half-hour (all times PST):

Law & Order: CI (new episode) 7pm USA:
TV Guide's online grid 60 minutes
ZAP2it's online grid 63 minutes (Tribune Media Services) and not showing this way last Saturday
Dish on screen guide 65 minutes (Supposedly Tribune Media Services) and not showing this way last Saturday

Gray's Anatomy 9pm ABC
TV Guide's online grid 62 minutes
ZAP2it's online grid 62 minutes (Tribune Media Services)
Dish on screen guide 60 minutes (Supposedly Tribune Media Services)

ER 10:01?? NBC
TV Guide's online grid 60 minutes starts at 10 pm even though before it Earl supposedly starts at 8pm runs 30min, 30 Rock runs 30 minutes, The Office runs 31 minutes, and Scrubs runs 31 minutes!
ZAP2it's online grid 59 minutes (Tribune Media Services) with before it Scrubs only running an extra minute
Dish on screen guide 60 minutes starts at 10 pm (Supposedly Tribune Media Services) with all the shows before it running 30 minutes

I thought the new L&O: CI episodes are on at 10pm Thursdays on USA Network and repeated at 1am Friday. When did they change them to 7pm??
