Come on, pull the other one.

We're talking about posting name, time, and channel information about  
shows that have ALREADY AIRED.  This makes the data useless for any  
kind of scheduling.  ILike I said before, your comment is like  
arguing that if I say "Hey, I watched The Simpsons last night at 8 pm  
on FOX" I'm somehow violating the terms of service of my TV listings  
provider.  It's silly.
