Content (In)consistency
« on: January 03, 2009, 12:13:50 AM »
Hi folks

I know it's just a kids' show but...

Wed, 7 Jan, 7:00am - [REC] Toasted TV - Toasted TV 'The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius / ...
Tue, 6 Jan, 7:00am - [REC] Toasted TV - Toasted TV 'Jimmy Neutron/ ...
Mon, 5 Jan, 7:00am - [REC] Toasted TV - Toasted TV 'Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (r)

It doesn't take a boy genius to perceive a marked lack of consistency in the Jimmy Neutron content of the programme and the question remains as to whether they are repeats or not.  While not of earth shattering consequences to me, my son might have other opinions and if it can happen to a kids' show it could easily happen to a more popular adult series.  Please can you review how you address content consistancy.

The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genesis at 7:00 AM on Toasted TV weekdays, are all repeats according to Ten's own TV guides.

Seems to me the laws (I thought TV stations are meant to mark repeats as such - unless shown on a different station, which is a great loophole) have been changed, or forgotten about, but lately more and more shows are repeats, on the same station, not marked as such.  One in particular I happened to notice by accident, (well, two) is The View and Ellen.  OK, I know that we are talking about nein, but just for the fun of it I checked on various guides, none showed them as repeats, yet all the shows last week were.  I usually have them running in the background while doing other things and I recognised the guests and Ellen was talking about the presidential debate at one stage.  Then there is 7 HD, which seems to show the same shows day after day.  Something to look forward to when we get all the "extra" channels?
Cheers,
Judy

Boy Genesis?!?!?  But surely that must be a new series?!?!? (snigger)
Seriously though, thanks for that.  It would seem that Ice have settled for the sub-title of "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius" too so all is well with the world again.
