I have a DVR. It's like TiVo, as far as I can tell (I've never had TiVo, so this is speculation, based on reading descriptions.) Sometime soon, I'll tell you what I like and don't about it.
But ONE of the functions is that I can record ALL episodes of a show on a station. So, if the listing people know that a show's going to be on at a different time, it'll catch it (60 Minutes at 7 or at 7:30, depending on whether there's a late game on CBS; of course, it's almost always on later than that.)
I have programmed a new show called My Name is Earl, which generally is on at 9 p.m. on NBC. But I looked at my future recordings mode, I discovered episodes of Earl at 8:30, 9, and 9:30 p.m. to be recorded this coming Saturday night. Sure enough, I look at the electronic guide, and there is some "Most Outrageous" something or other at 8, followed by THREE episodes of Earl! (The print TV guide has two episodes of a show called Surface in that slot.)
Since they've only aired three episodes of the show (only the first two of which I've seen), I ASSUME those are the three shows they'll be presenting. Which means that if you haven't gotten on the Earl bandwagon yet, you have another chance!
