Questions about things I do not understand Air times and Alternate Showings

If the site requires the original date and time a show airs, why is that anyway, who cares what night it aired and the time it originally aired way back when? Most of us want to know when it airs today this week, this month? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> How do we indicate a new day the show airs? How do we indicate a new time a show airs? I know when you put a new episode you put the date it is scheduled to air but what if a series that is still airing has not been updated in weeks, months or even years which I have seen many shows missing 2 to 6 seasons of episodes. If someone wants to at least indicate what time and day a show airs even though it has not had new episodes on it in a long time and we cannot change the original time and date where do we go to indicate this new day and time? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> If a show has 2 or more new episodes on in one day like Psychic Investigators on BIO does how do we indicate that one episode airs at one time and the 2nd new episode airs at a different time. This show airs most of its' new episodes at 10 PM and another new episode at 1030 PM but I do not see how to indicate that anywhere? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> It would be so much easier if each episode show a time it normally airs but gave you the option to change it along with the episode number, date etc? Why do they not add that feature? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Alternate Airdates, If a show airs in one country like England and then the U.S. picked up the same identical series with the same cast, crew and episodes how do we indicate what time and date each episode airs in the U.S.? There are a lot of shows in the U.K. and even more in Canada that now air in the U.S. Are we supposed to add the same show a second time with U.S. next to it? That may be the answer but it would take a lot of work to add in all the episodes, cast, crew and any other information from the original show so the best alternative would be a way to indicate it also now airs in the U.S. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Option would be what other country or countries this show also airs, what network, what time, date and anytime they may decide to change a title of an episode for some reason? These could all be drop down boxes to choose, country, network, time, date etc. One or more episodes may air at a different time or on a different day for some reason.

The TV Entertainment Book for TV fans and nuts like me and you.

There is a fantastic, informative, entertaining and very helpful book on the market I like to call my “TV Bible". The name of this book is “The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows 1946 – Present” written by “Tim Brooks” and “Earle Marsh”. It is currently in its 8th Edition and is printed every few years. Here is a list of all the editions and when they were published: First – May 1979 Second – November 1981 Third – May 1985 Fourth – October 1988 Fifth – May 1992 Sixth – October 1995 Seventh – December 1999 Eighth and current release – October 2003 I'm hoping the Ninth Edition will come out this year so I can scoop it up as soon as possible? This edition has almost 1600 pages of information all TV related and broken down in sections like this: 1.

If the show moved to another time slot, day or time or both then it shows that along with Month and Year it was in that time slot and Month and Year it either ended or moved to another time slot. F. Cast on the show with character name listed first followed by the actor/actress that played the role. If a person didn’t play that role the entire run or the show/series dates are given for when they did play the part. G.

Lastly is the Index which is an alphabetical listing of actors and actresses that appeared in any show by their last name and the pages you can find that star listed in a show. I hope the above information about this fantastic Book that I always buy will help someone make an informed decision on whether they want to buy one or not? The book is published by Ballantine Books. I would provide their website address here but I believe putting website addresses are **** by the TOS but if I am wrong I will gladly provide it? The regular full price of this edition in the US sells for $27.95 and $41.95 in Canada. As of today the 8th edition is still available for purchase at Amazon for only $19.29 new or you can purchase a used copy for $14.48. More information about the book is also available to read on wikipedia. I was not able to find any information on when the 9th edition will finally come out. Updated information: Updated on: 02/23/07 How I originally found out about this book was all quite by accident. I live in Jacksonville, Florida and I was visiting my Mother and my Beautiful Sister Robin in Alexandria, Virginia one 3 day weekend. On a Saturday they decided to drive downtown to a small used book store. I could have stayed at their place and watch TV but I decided to tag along but only because I do not get to see them very often. I personally could have cared less about going to a book store New or Used as I did not read much at all during that time in my life. It was around 1990 I believe the year was and I was strolling around the store just glancing at books here and there stacked up on top of old tables. I glanced down to a book on the top of a stack on this one table that caught my eye. It only caught my eye because it had pictures of TV stars on the cover and I picked it up to see what it was about. I quickly scanned through the book and even though the only pictures were on the front outside cover I found it had some very interesting stuff inside. On the outside cover it indicated it was the 4th Edition of the book so I turned the book over to check the price and I believe the regular price was on it around $24.00. I said to myself no way was I paying anywhere near that price. I then realized this was a used bookstore so that must not be the price. I took the book over to the counter and with a big smile (mostly because the young lady behind the counter was very hot looking) I asked her if she could tell me the price. She opened up the back inside cover of the book and showed me it was only $9.00. I felt like such a Big fool not looking further in the book for a price myself and so I said "I'm sorry I didn't even think to look there". She said something like "That's okay it happens a lot, especially to our new customers". I said to myself $9.00 is not bad but still more than what I wanted to pay for a book I might look at only one time. She then pointed to a sign on the wall that I had also not noticed. It indicated that all books in the shop were 50% percent off the marked down price. When I learned it would only be $4.50 I was glad to pay that amount for it. When we got back to my Mom's house I took the book and sat out in her rocker on the front porch and began to read through it. My sister sat close-by reading one of the many books she had purchased. Before I knew it more than 5 hours had past me by and I had not closed the book one time. I could not believe how interesting it was and that it was the longest time I had ever spent continuously reading any one book ever in my life. I took the book home with me that weekend and throughout the week I couldn't wait until I got home each day to read a little from it. I think I read a little bit of the book every day for almost a month straight. I of course have since purchased the 5th, 6th, 7th and now 8th editions and after enjoying the first one so much I didn't care how much I had to pay for the others. I began using the information out of my 8th Edition book over 2 years ago on the Internet at, and a few other places I don't go to anymore. I would love to see them come out with some other books to cover the times of the day they do not cover in this book. Also a book of Cable Networks they don't cover in this book as well like: ABC Family Bravo Lifetime Playboy just to name a few. The other books I would love to see could be titled something like this: 1. The Complete Directory to Day Time Network and Cable TV Shows 1946 – Present 2. The Complete Directory to Children's Network and Cable TV Shows 1946 – Present 3. The Complete Directory to Animated Network and Cable TV Shows 1946 – Present 4. The Complete Directory to Foreign Countries Night Time Network and Cable TV Shows 1946 – Present 5. The Complete Directory to Prime Time "ALL" Cable TV Shows 1946 – Present
