    As usual, the guide data for Discovery is a complete mess.
    They've marked the whole day of rebranded reruns as new and the actual season premier as old tonight.

    If you watch anything on Discovery, you're used to Rovi never getting the guide right. It's tragic that Tivo sold their business to an entity that only keeps the product around to support their lawsuit business.

    Not sure why you're blaming Rovi when the Discovery Channel's online schedule seems to show the same thing.

    Actually, the most important part was correct on Discovery's site and incorrct on Rovi. Hence the post. The premier episode of the show was not going to record.

    The annoying part while technically correct on Discovery's site was that they constantly rebrand old content and mark it new. For up to 3 days before any show starts, they rerun old content and mark it as new to get as much ad revenue as possible out of gullible consumers. Everyone else has figured this out and not subjected their customers to a DVR full of reruns. Rovi however, not only continues to pass this on to their subscribers, but they simply cannot get the data correct whether new or old. They constantly create new collections for old shows and just pass along whatever garbage data their web scraper comes up with. Sometimes it gets fixed last minute, often, it does not.
