Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown

Can anyone set a Season Pass for this? It premiers this Sunday night (4/14), but it's not in my guide data. I get "Piers Morgan Live" in the time slot that is supposed to be his new show.

Seems like there was a similar issue with another recent new show on CNN.

Does CNN have a history of not getting the guide updated? They have known about this show for sometime and have been promoting it on air for weeks and weeks.

I did an Anthony Bourdain WL and all I'm getting is No Reservations. So the new show isn't showing up in my Guide Data either.

So your options are:
  1. set up a manual recording
  2. wait and see if it turns up in the Guide Data
  3. set up a keyword wishlist to catch it when it shows up
  4. all of the above

I agree that it's a pain when promos for shows are aired and you can't set the SP right then. So I end up making lots of wishlists.

This happens with CNN and MSNBC. I guess telling Tivo about it may work, but I never know if the thing will be on at the time they say or on 3 hours earlier matching my time zone so I am reluctant to send a guide change to Tivo. I will keep my eye on it.

In my experience, CNN program guide info tends to be pretty bad all the time. One thing I notice is that there is never any specific episode info on newsy shows like Piers Morgan or Anderson Cooper, etc.

I am only interested in the shows enough to watch if there is something in a given episode that interests me so, consequently, I never end up watching these CNN shows unless I read something online about a particular episode.

Along that vein, I've manually set up recordings on CNN in the past only to find that most of the time what actually recorded in that time slot was something completely different from what was in the program guide.

Bourdain's show is something I want to watch every week. All of it, too. Just like I had before when the show was on Travel Channel. I guess I'll go with a manual time recording for CNN at 8:00 PM and see how that goes.

Augh! Generic Guide Data! We hates it.

But the SP is set.

Are you recording the HD feed? I was looking at the SP channel.

I have no idea how to set my Premier to SD, and I don't care to so I am getting data that included Mynamar also. Ought to be interesting, not on my bucket list but could be an interesting place to visit.

In my area, Comcast has 2 different flavors of some channels, an SD one and an HD one. Obviously people who have HD TVs may want to record in HD, and some remove the SD channels from Channels You Receive so they won't clutter stuff up. On the other hand, I only have an SD TV, so I record the SD version of stuff when it is available to save on hard disk space.

In any case, I didn't have a chance to see if the SD channel and the HD channel had different Guide Data when I posted my message, because I was working on something that was time bound. So I don't know if my hypothesis (that the Guide Data might be right on the HD feed but not the SD) was correct or not.

I can tell you, however, if you have a WL for Anthony Bourdain, it will pick up at least one episode of The Simpsons.

I've noticed that only the initial airing of the show is actually listed as "Parts Unknown". Repeat airings late Sunday night and early Monday morning are still marked "Piers Morgan". If you have conflicts with the initial time slot, this could be a problem.

and the insanity begins again

Tonight's alleged new episode "Jerusalem" turned out to be a special "Parts Unknown: season one Prime Cuts" (a clip show).

I had deleted the SP over the summer because of CNN's crappy Guide Data; I saw that the show was starting up and made a new SP.

Shame on me for expecting the show that was broadcast to actually match the Guide Data.

I almost got burned by this.

I decide to while the time away, waiting for Breaking Bad, with some new Anthony Bourdain. I put it on to see what I thought was an old episode. Then realized it was a clip show from season 1. Then I saw a promo for the new series to premier "next". Of course, the guide data had a totally different show. But I set TiVo to record that. And of course, it was Season 2 Episode 1. So, I actually did get to see it. But only with some luck.


Stupid bad guide data.

CNN's website currently says:

For whatever that's worth.

That's CNN for you. You really gotta stay on top of things if you want to get your show. Even more so when there are major braking news stories that get full, wall to wall coverage.
