Don't always trust your personal TV Schedule

I was really upset as I logged in today. None of my shows appeared on my TV Schedule this week. No Being Erica, no Private Practice. Suddenly I went to the official websites of my series and what a relief - they will air this week.

So be careful with your personal TV-Schedule: If you trust it too easily, you might miss an episode of your favorite show.

A lot of US TV series have been on breaks this week (also last week) and some still next even...Private Practice is definitely not on this week; nor is Grey's!Airing details for shows are not automated, but manually beware that sometimes the info can change unexpectedly - as episodes are sometimes swapped, pulled, etc. at the last minute. We do recognize though that at times there can be errors, but we really do try hard to keep them accurate. If you ever see any errors, please feel free to report them! Also, you can even help us out by "adding episode info" for a show (with an airdate) if a page is not locked. I went ahead and did it for is by doing this that the information will appear on your calendar!

As Rachel points out, the schedule is manually updated, so my suggestion would be to use a regular online television guide (like TV Guide) for your television viewing, and SideReel guide for quickly accessing your favourites on SideReel. That way you don't run the risk of missing an aired show, and someone will catch any mistakes that slip through, so your SideReel guide will eventually be made right. Besides, the guide here is for one time zone (American Pacific), so using a regular guide for television viewing especially makes sense if you don't live in that zone.

There's episodes airing the next 2 Thursdays (February 26 and March 5), but they are reruns. It would probably say "all new" or something like that in the description if they are new.

Yes, but if you'll notice, the Private Practice episode name is "Let It Go", 2x05, which originally aired Nov 2008 in the States.
