The good old Viacom scheduling department has done it again; sent out the wrong data for one of their flagship shows. The South Park season premiere, which was just fine on Monday with the blank synopsis, suddenly had the 'new' flag removed when it got the synopsis in the last day or so, so currently if your season pass is recording new shows...it's not getting this one. Sorry the notice is coming so late, but hopefully this helps someone.
It's 2014; I'd tolerate this from Pivot or a smaller channel, but from a Viacom network? To say I'm tired of working around their unsettled scheduling for DVR's is an understatement.
I happened to do a network update at the same time and once the schedule info came in, the episode had been re-flagged as new. So in the space of a few hours someone at Viacom must've realized their big mistake and rushed TMS to add the 'new' tag.
