    "Supergirl" airs at 8 Eastern rather than 9 on Dec. 8. My Roamio said 'Record this episode". So I set it to record. Afterward I have a listing for a behind the scenes special. The same special, or a different one, is listed for 9 Eastern Dec. 10.

    "Batwoman" airs at 8 Eastern Dec. 9. I don't have a season pass so I had to tell it to record anyway.

    There should be an "Arrow" episode but there's not one listed on Dec. 10. I don't have a season pass for that one.

    "Black Lightning" and "The Flash" air in their usual slots. I'm not certain whether "Black Lightning" is a part of this.

    I think "Black Lightning" the show isn't involved. But the main character of Black Lightning will show up in the crossover.

    I'm reading that parts 4 and 5 (Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow), don't air until January? (I hope that's wrong).

    The list I'm seeing says:
    Part 1: SuperGirl - Dec 8
    Part 2: Batwoman - Dec 9
    Part 3: The Flash - Dec 10
    Part 4: Arrow - Jan 14
    Part 5: Legends of Tomorrow - Jan 14

    So I'm assuming they destroy the universe at the end of Part 3, leave us hanging for a month, then fix everything in January.

    The schedule change is interesting as I show all 3 episodes in their normal time slots. The two specials appear to be different to me, the names end with I and II. The Arrow and legends of Tomorrow episodes will be airing on January 14th, I am guessing to tie in with the new season launch of Legends of Tomorrow

    The specials are called Crisis Aftermath I and II so i assume they are different.

    The specials are a “talking” show about the crisis episodes. They aren’t directly part of it.

    I’m surprised they are waiting a month to show parts 4 and 5. They’ve never done that before.

    They are the "Behind the scenes" in making of these episodes.

    It’s odd, but in the original announcement, they touted that Crisis was so big that it spanned 2 quarters.

    How many crises can there possibly be? Every year?

    I only watch The Flash*, so I created a wishlist for "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Hopefully that'll suffice. It found the first 3 episodes.


    * and boy, am I looking forward to getting past this special so they'll stop mentioning "crisis" every 5 minutes. I'm so fed up with this show, lol.

    I only watch Supergirl, unless there are crossovers.

    That all appears correct.

    Of course, you could save them and binge in January.

    FYI if you are trying to avoid spoilers for the crossover, avoid watching or at least pausing the trailers. There was a half second image in one of them which I consider a spoiler as I wasn’t expecting it.

    Speaking of spoilers, is this going to be the talkback thread for the episodes?

    No please. I'm probably not the only one subbed to the thread for the scheduling issue. It'll be annoying if spoilers show up here, especially since it'll take a while to get all four shows watched.

    Yah, don't google for the crossover either. In the past two days there have been a dozen articles pointing exactly that out, with what you're talking about visible in either the article title, or summary, or image that's returned.

    Separate Discussion thread created in Now Playing: Crisis on Infinite Earths (CW 2019-2020)

    We can leave this thread for scheduling discussions.

    Speaking of which, my The Flash season pass did not pick up Tuesday's episode. Everything looks right, no reason why, but it was not planning on recording it as part of my Season Pass.
