The Fri 4/18 showings of Fastlane (8pm) and John Doe (9pm)

are being bumped for SF Giants baseball. The new air times are:


Sat 04/19 12:00a- 1:00a FOX Fastlane

Sat 04/19 1:00a- 2:00a FOX John Doe


You may need to pad before Fastlane and after John Doe to account

for unpredicability of a sporting event.

I don't think John Doe showed at all. Did it? I think FOX showed some Adam Sandler movie instead, at least that's what my VCR recorded.

The last time they "shifted" John Doe around for baseball, they didn't air it.


I recorded the time slot in the Replay Channel Guide and it was a movie - NOT John Doe.

Hmm, for me, last time they shifted for baseball, KTVU FOX did air them

close to when they said they would (12 midnight to 2am) but they started

45 minutes late and I only padded John Doe by 30 minutes so I missed

the last 15. BTW the last John Doe that was shifted was episode

3/28/03 "Save As...John Doe" I believe FOX is the same for me on the

peninsula as you in SF.


I think the Friday just past 4/11 (which was also baseball night), there

either wasn't an episode of Fastlane and John Doe, or they were repeats,

because the schedule never mentioned any shifted time (for KTVU FOX)

and if they were repeats KTVU wouldn't be under any obligation to air the

shows at all.


Sometimes what ends up happening is FOX schedules John Doe, then

later changes it's mind and your replay doesn't pick up the change

in time. Once replay gets the schedule, it doesn't 're-download' those

dates until the day before. If the replay servers were acting up as

they sometimes do, your unit would still think John Doe is playing when

in fact, FOX rescheduled a movie in it's place, just your replay never got

the guide change.


This happened for me just last Monday with Miracles being cancelled and

The Practice repeat being shown in it's place. My recorded entry said

Miracles, but the actual content was The Practice.
