I had an occurance last year as I recall where Z2L updated in the afternoon
for an evening presidential address, pushing back all the primetime shows.
My cron of --refresh-today at 6pm caught this and I did not miss any
recordings.  This press conference as I recall was not announced the day
before.  Now, for the most recent press conference, Z2L did not seem to do
this but that's not to say they will not in the future.
