Really? Have you tried "going to your local TV station"?

They can probably tell you what the program is, and likely the episode #, and 
most likely the segment lengths and availability locations.

But probably not the episode description, actors, directors, producers and 
the "capsule description". That's the information that is 
considered "proprietary" by some, not the simple schedule info.
