I find it is much easier just to run a mythfilldatabase cron job with
--refresh-today prior to primetime (say 6pm) to pick up schedule changes.
 I've even had it pick up Presidential addresses that are scheduled during
the day that the networks have added in the past.  It also doesn't have the
effect of hammering the Schedules Direct system updating all the data all
the time or the potential side effect of having no data for a period while
the update is run.
