Good advice... and something I went and checked right away when I saw  
this. My wife and I both LOVE that show, so it would've really sucked  
to have missed it. Thanks for the heads up... I probably would've  
checked it sometime next week anyway to be on the safe side, but it  
was really nice to get the heads up well in advance for a change :)
