How to see what new shows/movies have been aired?

Hey guys, there's only a few shows that I watch now and these are pretty much Hulk and the Agents of SMASH, Ultimate-Spiderman and Avengers Assemble and sci-fi movies. Does anyone know if there's a way for me to be notified when a new episode or new movie has been released? I'm finding it really hard to keep up with everything by just manually looking them up.

Thank you!

Do you have cable? Do you have a DVR with your cable? You do? Bam! Have your DVR record new episodes for you. New movies typically come out on Fridays.

There.

You don't have cable? Buy a TV Guide or a newspaper everyday and somewhere in it there will be TV listings.

Or just simply remember when the shows you like come on (write it down if you have to) and tune in at those times if it's an episode you've already seen then no new episode today.

There's also countless websites out there (TVGuide.com and TV.com come to mind) that have TV listings on them, including the websites for the channel you're watching.

The internet ain't hard to use, kiddo, we can't do all of the work for you.

You'll have to do the leg work but I think you can set up faves and reminders through here: http://www.zap2it.com/

Or, you could just log onto an entertainment forum you like and ask other people to do all the work for you.

www.google.com

Go there. type in the box the name of the show and you'll get whole lists of websites with information about said show. Most likely one of the first few will have a schedule of episodes somewhere.

I'm not gonna come out and be accusatory, but after x mount of "let's do ReadyandWilling's legowork for him or let's help ReadyandWilling find movies similar to X," I wuld say that ReadyandWilling is playing us.

Just a thought, not an accusation or a personal attack.

In the olden days, we'd either look in the newspaper, see an ad on television about something interesting, or drive by the theater marquee. If we were too busy to do all that, we'd just tell our secretary to find out.

Before or after the cigarette and martini?

I knew the newspaper reference would give it away. Shucks.

No, I'm just asking for help.

It's really frustrating that I need to manually check each show's Wikipedia link to see when the most recent episode was released...

Re: How to see what new shows/movies have been aired?

At the beginning of every week I go through the week's tv listings at Zap2It.com and write down the new episodes in my planner, then I make sure my DVR is set to record them. About a third of the time it doesn't realize the episode is new. You gotta police that sucker!
