    If the NBA Playoff doesn't go to a 7th game, a couple of new "Better Off Ted" episodes will be broadcast on the 17th.

    Something similar happened last year when the World Series ended early. New episodes of some series were shown, but did not get into the guide until too late for most.

    "Better Off Ted" fans should keep this in mind -- the guide might still show a play-off game even if there is none. So a manual recording set up or forcing a daily call just before prime time might be in order.

    Or has TiVo come up with a solution to this issue?

    I thought BOT was dead. Are these just unaired episodes they had left in the can or has the show been resurrected?

    Unless there is no Game 7 and Tivo does learn there is none and deschedules it. Better plan: Manual Recording.

    EST?

    It's DT now in most of the country. I can never remember how it translates back and forth.

    But according to to the post before yours, it will be 7-8 CDT, which would be 8-9 EDT. Is that 7-8 EST or 9-10 EST?

    :D

    TiVos assume the "if necessary" games will be. Many cable DVRs assume they won't.

    If there is a game, we'll still get Jimmy Kimmel and the pregame show in that hour.

    I did a manual record from 7-10...I think that covers it for me ...I had no idea I stumbled into a cancelled/not renewed sore spot ;)

    I cannot find a release date for Better Off Ted - Second Season DVD but I bet the two episodes show up on that.

    I had no idea there were any unaired BOT episodes. I really hope they're aired.
    That show deserved so much better.
