Bruce, thank you for the prompt reply.  I went back, and checked
through my recording schedule.  I saw I had three sessions of Boston
Legal, and 1 session of Psych.  Indeed, Psych was scheduled for 10pm
on Fridays.  As for Boston Legal, I had 2 to record weekly on Tuesday
(different times), another one to check for the show everyday.  I was
going to query you about why it only showed up on the Friday listing,
and not for everyday, but I know have more important matters to attend

I was fiddling with myth-setup last night.  Between that and
rebooting, I've lost all of my Upcoming recordings.  Thankfully, my TV
listings and recorded programs are still there.

One problem at a time I suppose.  /sigh
