Could these be 2-hr episodes broken into 1-hr parts (as those would 
legitimately be different programids, but could have identical subtitle 
and description)?  Or, perhaps they're some kind of extended or enhanced 
episode?  Or, perhaps the data will be updated when you re-download the 
listings for July 27th.  Though you shouldn't do this regularly, you can 

mythfilldatabase --refresh-all

to see if it's just because the data has been updated since you 
downloaded it a week ago.


Answer to 1, could be but here in the US they generally don't do that, or if
they do there is a part 1 and part 2 in the name. And if it were part 2 it
would be airing the next week not a day later in the middle of the day, or
the day before the regular schedule.

I generally do not do refresh all because my daily update redownloads the
current day, to check for changes, as well as the 14th day, to fill in the
missing day.
