Stopped as in: sudo stop mythtv-backend (as opposed to killing it
and having upstart restart it automatically?)

Both of those tables are created in dbcheck.cpp when going from
schema 1257 to 1258.  Before restarting the backend you can prove
that the tables don't exist by doing:

  SHOW COLUMNS FROM internetcontent;
  SHOW COLUMNS FROM internetcontentarticles;

Expect to see:
  ERROR 1146 (42S02): Table 'mythconverg.internet...' doesn't exist

Good luck,
