    I will never, ever, catch up. This list is just the shows that I'm behind on. The shows that I'm current on don't appear on the list until a new episode airs. I'm spoilerizing just due to length.

    I'm not sure it makes sense to say you're "behind" on a show that stopped airing several years ago and which you've never watched an episode. You may want to watch many of those shows, and you may plan to do so someday when you find the time. But saying that you're "behind" on them isn't really accurate.

    By the way, what app is that? I think I like that better than TV Show Tracker that I'm using.

    I see your point, but I'm not sure there's a better word to describe it.

    The app is "iTV Shows 2" - I've tried lots of different show tracking apps (including TV Show Tracker, which I used before switching to this one), and this one is far and away the best - very feature-rich without feeling bloated or confusing, and also very attractive. The screenshots don't really give a good sense of all that the app can do. Highly recommended.

    Thanks. Before I spend $2.99 on it, how accurate is the episode information they provide? For example, TV Show Tracker is telling me I'm an episode behind on all the FOX Sunday animation shows, since they were scheduled to air last Sunday but then FOX moved the MLB game to the evening. So it's understandable that the app originally thought the shows would air, but it doesn't make sense that the info hasn't been updated since none of those episodes actually aired. Similarly, TV Show Tracker thinks there was an episode of Happy Endings last season called "Kickball 2: The Kickening." According to Wikipedia, this episode aired in the UK, but it never aired in the US. Yet my app is still showing that I'm behind on that episode.

    It's been at least as accurate as TV Show Tracker, if not better. It does have inaccuracies from time to time, which I'm sure comes not from the app but rather the data provider. I don't know what they're using (tvrage, tv.com, epguide, imdb, etc) - they don't say anywhere that I can see. I looked up Happy Endings and it is showing the kickball episode.

    ETA: it uses tvrage.com and thetvdb.com

    So it's showing that the Kickball episode aired last May 17? I guess that's the date it aired in the UK, but it never aired in the US. You'd think these apps would reflect the air date info from the country where the show originates.

    Weird. It definitely didn't air that date. It aired May 17 in the UK, but has never aired in the US. I wonder where they're getting their data from, so I can submit a correction.

    Tvrage shows the April date (as well as the May one for the UK airing). I bet they got it from there.

    I have been catching up during the storm.

    I think my favorite NEW show is Nashville.

    Love it!

    I'm still never catching up on some shows. There are a ton I haven't even started on the new season yet. I did get a few Boardwalk Empire over the weekend. I think maybe 4 of them. I still have 3-4 to watch. I didn't even realize we were that far into the season on that show!

    Well, now, because of the storm, I'm not only STILL behind on many shows because of baseball, but now I will probably be looking for a week's worth of shows on the internet since I have no power or internet at home.

    Our TiVo Premiere died and took with it a handful of this season's new shows...so I might just say c'est la vie and let them all go (Ben & Kate, 666 Park Avenue, Life After Top Chef, Revolution).

    The storm has some shows messed up a little. I though the second airing of the knockout rounds on The Voice was jacked because of the Storm, but turns out it was jacked because the local stations decided to air the KU game over The Voice, had to watch it online... and tolerate the commercials.

    At this point, I'm only behind on Survivor, which I've stopped watching since this season was borning... and I've not yet started watching the new shows. But, since a few of them have been picked up for full seasons I can start watching them now.

    I don't think you are missing anything in any of them. I tried them all and said 'bleh'.

    I think if mine were to die I would be sad for the shows that I have saved for a couple years on it. Including the TiVo that I bought from you that you got from Allie that still had shows on it that neither of you remembered.

    8 days now of no TV. Piggy back that onto what I was trying to catch up on because of baseball and it's going to be almost impossible catching up on stuff.

    How long do the network sites (or Hulu) keep shows for? I'm concerned that by the time I catch up on what I have on the DVR I won't be able to access the other episodes I missed online.
