    This is the third straight Thursday night where there is no skipmode data for Big Bang, Sheldon and Mom. It is missing from other shows on other nights with increasing frequency.

    Are others having this problem?

    Is TiVo starting to knuckle under on skip? If yes, any ideas on how long before it disappears completely?

    Big Bang Theory and Mom have skipmode for me. Young Sheldon doesn't. Gotham and Arrow don't have it either. Beat Bobby Flay, Scandal, Chicago Fire and SWAT all have it. So sort of hit and miss. 6 shows have it, 3 don't.

    Skipmode was delayed for some of the earlier prime time shows.

    No skip on Arrow, Supernatural, Gotham, even as of now (6AM Saturday). Friday night shows do have skip.

    This is my experience too. Some of the NBC shows seem to have them on Thursday. But it's hit and miss for a variety of shows. Even the nightly talk shows that I watch will have it one day and the not the next. Some, like Seth Meyers, never have it.

    I will say that it is missing more than it used to be. I am very used to having it and lament when it is not available on a show that I'm watching.

    It's a crapshoot.

    Late Night and The Late Late Show will never have it. It's outside the parameters, even if by a small amount.

    Sure would be nice if we had a tool that shows why SM fails.

    Skipmode coding guy seems to be drinking on the job on Thursdays.

    And Arrow, so for me, everything that should get it did get it.

    TGIT score:
    CBS 7 for 7
    NBC 8 for 9 - NBC Nightly New failed
    ABC 6 for 6
    Fox 6 for 6
    Looks like Thursday night failures have move to a new night.

    Although in my experience, it's not every Thursday...it's just that when it happens, it seems to happen on a Thursday.

    For my shows of last night, it looks like all of them that would normally have 'skip', do. yay!

    It's actually been pretty good here lately. But Colbert and TDS have been off this week. Those are two that have been particularly hit and miss.

    Next week every late night show is new. Maybe those SMs (Skip Monkeys) have been staying up late and fall asleep watching all those 30 minute sitcoms. I think the quantity of Thursday night shows is impressive. All I usually record is S.W.A.T..

    Dunno if Sunday is the new Thursday, but neither Walking Dead nor Fear the Walking Dead had skip mode tonight.

    Timeless did. Killing Eve didn't, but I'm pretty sure BBCA doesn't get it.
