    As of right now, Battlebots is still showing as on this evening; of course it's been pre-empted for the ABC News town hall on racial issues also airing on ESPN and Freeform, so it may record as Battlebots and a manual record may be needed next week if it does since it shows up as 'recorded' in the TiVo history.

    Starting 7/18 expect a lot of recording/scheduling issues due to the conventions.

    The official @BattleBots Twitter account announced the preemption on 7/12 as being for a Presidential address: https://twitter.com/battlebots/status/753050289905754112

    Eye all prime-time scheduled programming with suspicion tonight, particularly those scheduled as new: BattleBots, Greatest Hits, Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge, Aquarius, Bones, Home Free, Big Brother, and Beauty and the Beast.

    I keep running update for my Tivo and tonight's Town Hall is not showing up. I set my Battlebots Season Pass to record everything in the case it thinks that it is recording it tonight. I hope I can catch it somehow. ABC is not putting anything about when or where the new episode is showing up.

    Tonight's Town Hall is scheduled to run for only 1 hour, so "Greatest Hits" should not be affected. Also, it is only being aired on Disney-owned networks (ABC, Freeform, ESPN) and should not affect the schedule for shows on other networks.

    It was not on my to-do list, as TiVo sees it as a repeat. Thanks for the heads up :up:
