    HBO2 is showing 11 of his specials... starting on Wednesday night at 8pm Eastern.

    As of this moment, the Online Scheduling (and, I suspect, the guide data itself) does not the schedule updated.

    Here's the list - http://www.hbo.com/events/george-carlin/tribute.html?ntrack_para1=feat_main_image

    Bear in mind those are all HBO2, not HBO!

    (It's Bad For Ya will also be on HBO and HBO-HD on Friday...)

    This alone was worth the HBO subscription for the month. And earlier in the week I had been lamenting that it was too bad that HBO wasn't like Turner Classic Movies--they never seem to be willing to just throw their schedule out the window and memorialize someone. Can anyone remember the last time they did something like this? Anyway, great job, HBO, but I wonder why they didn't just show all the George Carlin specials. I think there were a few missing, weren't there?

    Edit: they left out three of his specials....
