Yup.. it is the same problem.  My kids watch a number of shows on Nick
and Cartoon which are having the same problems (My son watches
Backyardagains, and they all show up in the list with just the title
"The Backyardagains" and a generic description, making it difficult to
pick out the ones he particularly likes.. at nearly 3 years old, you can
imagine the repercussions. :) )  Same goes with some of the timings. 
We've been getting a lot of "Fairly Odd Parents" shows in place of the
expected "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron" (as is defined in our
schedule). :(

I'd recommend just waiting it out.  I'm hoping DD will find the issue
and fix it.
