    It's showing up in my guide again starting Sunday July 16. That night shows them starting with E08 - the evolution of racial humor.

    Just lately CNN seems to have gotten much better at keeping a schedule, for whatever reason. I have OPs for the three decade shows to record "Everything", and this month they haven't recorded a single wrong episode. Either they learned their lesson, or maybe nothing is happening to preempt the schedule in the summer.

    Uhh, no "breaking" news, for their definition of breaking..?

    I'm only being slightly sarcastic, since I too think they go on with the same topics over & over, but sometimes even if it's not what _I_ would call breaking news, they do preempt their "premade" shows. I just wish they'd correct the OAD when they did that, then we wouldn't have to manually correct it.

    What was "breaking news" a while ago is now just another news item. CNN, like myself, found non-political news still exists. Sometimes I watch The Weather Channel just for mental relaxation.

    I don't know if this is real, but my guide lists CNN's "The History of Comedy" eps 4 tonight at 10pm Eastern. Screener (zap2it) indicates the episode is new. TiVo doesn't. It does appear on tvguide.com, but no new indication or OAD.

    Yeah, I think Tivo got confused on this one because - correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this show slated to air some time back (my Tivo listing shows OAD 3/9/17 for this particular episode) and the whole thing got pre-empted?

    I'm just picking them up manually. Odd that they would start it again, not to mention episodes completely out of order, in the middle of their other series 'The Nineties'.

    CNN is screwed up. I checked CNN GO and it's messed up too. Maybe it's a joke (where is that irony emoji?) I could not find a Wiki page either.

    FYI at least as of yesterday, next week's is also not being flagged as new. It has an air date around Mar 2017. For those of you with a 1P I don't know if it's getting picked up. (I set up recordings for these CNN shows specifically by episode instead of through a 1P.)

    They even had an *ad* saying next week's was new.. But it did air, yet with the wrong guide data.. I have at least one ep of the history with the wrong guide data.. I'll re-record the future airing, just so I can nuke the wrong one (hoping that they didn't cut anything out, and for basic cable shows like this, I don't think they usually do), and keep the one with correct guide data to watch at some point. Though I did watch 2 others last night.

    It's kind of weird how shows are so much more PC nowadays than the 70s in many ways.
