Program Listings - February 20102.72 MB



While surfing on the 26th I stumbled upon “The Greatest Good” and enjoyed what was left of the hour program. What surprised me was that it was a series. Program Listings had no information as to what part I had watched or how many were to come or when. The Online Schedule was of no help whatsoever stating that “no data was available”. Titan’s description described the singular program but not the series.

Taking even more time to do a Yahoo Search, I learned that the series was put out by the US Forest Service and consisted of FOUR half hour programs, two of which were apparently combined in the hour program I saw most of. Listings had “The Greatest Good” being repeated…or was it the second half of the entire series? Who could tell?

So I missed recording a series that I would have enjoyed watching in its entirety.

Many months ago I wrote in suggesting that you add a simple notation after any series name that would reveal a program was a series, which episode was being featured at that time, and how many episodes were in the entire series.

In this case, instead of the inadequate label “The Greatest Good” partially filling the printed time slot, your viewers might have seen “The Greatest Good 1&2/4”. Even “The Greatest Good 1/2” would have sufficed although the former would be preferable being the most informative by implication: this program name is a series of multiple episodes, with the first and second episodes in this one hour, and having four episodes in the entire series.

What you continue to provide in Listings is a study in frustration that still requires online access which, in itself, isn’t always sufficiently informative.

Why do you continue to subject your viewers to the temptation to not take your programming seriously?
