    After last weeks CSI, I was all ready to see what would happen after the management change. To my complete surprise they played a rerun and I did not see "R" on any listing.
    Bad move CBS!

    My Tivo knew it was (R) and did not record it.

    Ya I was dissapointed when I sat down to watch CSI last night, only to discover it was a re-run.

    Does anyone know of a site that shows each network's schedule with some indication of which shows are re-runs? The network sites do everything they can to avoid mentioning if a show is a re-run.

    tvguide (www. tvguide.com) lists epsiodes as new or rerun and my local paper shows (N) or (R) after each prime time series listing in the grid.

    The network web sites can be a good source, except CBS which is vague about the current episode and sends you to the CSI site which has other non-episodic stuff.. NBC's web site usually highlights new episodes with the NEW tag.

    Tivo season pass to the rescue. No recording, not a new ep.

    Sweeps ended on Wednesday, so new episodes will be scarce in December and January until the February sweeps - remember, they have to spread out 22 episodes from September to May.

    I have noticed that TV Guide has changed the way they identify episodes. They don't identify a show as a rerun anymore. If they don't have a New after the listing then you can assume it is a rerun. It took me a while to get used to this new system.

    The Star Trek website has a pretty good way of doing things. You just have to click on the episode featured on the front page. If the original air date and upcoming air date are the same, it is a new episode. Otherwise, it is a rerun.
