A week or two ago there was a change in program description displays,
which I noticed because "(actor)" and other descriptions appeared
after names. It's mostly been an improvement: I think the information
has been expanded, and names appear for programs where they didn't
With the same change, a problem started with View Additional Airings
for titles that have punctuation. Though I don't know just which
punctuation causes the problem, I've provided examples. What happens
is that if you click View Additional Airings from the pop up
description for these titles, you get "No Upcoming Airings Found."
This happens whether you're looking at a pop-up description from a
search result (when there are nearly always additional airings to show
that this response is wrong), or from the schedule grid. Many titles
with punctuation have always been a problem to search, but this issue
with additional airings is new.
My theory for most of the problem titles is that there is a
punctuation character that does not have a space to either side:
24/7 (on HBO: search 24 /titlestartswith)
$#*! My Dad Says (search My Dad Says /titleendswith)
Married ... with Children
Doogie Howser, M.D.
This one is a problem, but doesn't fit my theory of no space next to
The Wall - A World Divided
These do work for additional airings, probably because of a space
after the ".":
1 vs. 100
I hope there's a solution.
