The same thing happened to me. I took a look at the Sunday lineup and
opened up the show from listings. It was not attached to any schedule
even though I thought it would be. I noticed my recording schedule did
have 9:01 PM - 10:00 PM on that channel while the show last night was
listed in 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Maybe that was a factor? I added a
second schedule to see what happens in the future.
