Maybe. Their information is only as good as the information they  
receive from Tribune. Tribune's information is only as good as the  
information that they get. If they don't get any information, you get  
a generic episode in the listings.

You could just refresh the days you have discovered have better  
metadata than you have. Bear in mind that "tomorrow" always gets  
populated with new "better" data, so it's unlikely anything you will  
do will make it better.

Unfortunately, the only thing to do is let Schedules Direct know and  
they can escalate the problem if they don't already know about it.
