Should, but often does not.  I have seen shows where the programid /
episode number sorting does not match the air-date sorting.  Also, the
"episode number" is often missing from the data, and all you have is
the programid -- which MOST of the time does not match the air-date
order (in my experience).

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
