    I'm going to have to force record both shows.

    Stupid Fox.

    That most likely isn't going to happen.
    This is your local FOX Affiliate recording it on Monday, then playing back on Saturday.
    Since it didn't air yesterday, they can't re-air it on Saturday.

    I show Alcatraz Clarency Montgomery recording on 03/10. I guess I should wait to watch the episodes recording on 03/5 to watch in proper order.

    The FOX network has announced make-up times for programs that were pre-empted by NASCAR’s Daytona 500 on Monday night.

    The network says that the episode of “House” scheduled for Monday night will now be seen on Monday, March 19th, while the show “Alcatraz” will now have back-to-back episodes on Monday, March 5th.

    Wait a minute, later today it was reported:

    Monday, March 12th: An encore episode of “House” airs at 7 p.m., a NEW episode of “Alcatraz” airs at 8 p.m.

    Monday, March 19th: A NEW episode of “House” that was preempted because of Daytona 500 airs at 7 p.m.

    Advertisements currently shows that the preempted episode of Alcatraz will not air on Sat, March 10, but will air on Mon, March 12 (possibly repeating on Sat, March 24).

    The two episodes originally scheduled for March 5 have not been changed.

    You can find last nights episode of Alcatraz on usenet (maybe torrent, not sure). In Canada is airs on citytv and not Fox. Not condoning this behavior, just giving it as an option if you don't want to wait till next week.

    I think I'll change my SP to record everything, including duplicates.

    I can't think of any reason to air the episodes out of order unless the episode that was supposed to air yesterday doesn't really advance the plot so it could be inserted anywhere.

    I can't either unless it has something to do with selling commercial time. Might be a major hassle once someone has bought time on one episode to now shift things around. But, I don't know much about how that all works. Just guessing.

    Guess I won't be watching Touch.. (1) nbc shows (which need padding but I usually don't due to conflicts already), (2) big bang theory, (3) wipeout, though sometimes I skip that or record on my analog S1..

    Last time I tried to record the second showing of Alcatraz on Saturday, it was messed up by the stupid local people at Fox who didn't know how to switch from the local to the national feed. There is always Amazon. (They show it at 11:00 after the news and they messed it up.)

    Were you trying to record it from your local Fox broadcast affiliate?

    Ok, so Steve Lilien, one of the Exec producers of Alcatraz picked up on my tweet/question to Bethany and Podcatraz.

    He said that they are reshuffling so that the aired episodes are all in the proper order. So even though my guide data still shows Ames Bros/Sonny Burnett for Monday, according to Steve, it should be Clarence Monty/Ames Bros.

    So I think just recording all Monday eps should be fine. My gut is I can ignore the Saturday supposed re-air of Monty...I asked that of Steve and await a reply.

    Yep, I only receive my local Fox affiliate. I ended up using Amazon to watch it.

    And since it didn't air Monday, your local affiliate probably didn't have it "in the can" in order to be able to re-broadcast it.

    TiVo guide data on local FOX shows Clarence Montgomery set for Mar 12. It is marked as a repeat so even though I deleted the 27th showing from my ToDo list early, my FRO SP doesn't pick it up. Had to manually set it to record.

    House still looks good on USA for 3/9 at 3pm CST.

    If you delete it from your To Do List, it will assume you don't want to see it and won;t try to record a different showing. The only way to trick it is to set up manual recordings that will fill all your tuners. Then, it will assume that you still want to see it but that you had better things to do at that particular time.

    In this case, since Clarence Montgomery will be in the two-hour block on Monday, presumably the Guide Data will catch up by then and you should get it, since the two-hour block will be a different "episode" than the one-hour Clarence Montgomery that you canceled. We should all keep an eye on our To Do Lists as we get closer, let TiVo try to handle it, and intervene if it's still messed up on game day.

    The Alcatraz ep we missed on the 27'th is supposed to be shown at 7pm before the new 8pm show this monday but the guide data is sholl showing The Big Bang Theory. Assuming your on the east coast or have the same scheduling as me is anyone else seeing this or do any of you have updated guide info ?

    As far as House goes, I haven't looked in to that yet.
