That simply means that the listings you did download contain at least 
one program for the specified day, but a large proportion of shows 
contain no data.  This happens because some channels tend to get data to 
TMS faster than others.

It's not an error--and re-running mythfilldatabase isn't required.  The 
next run, tomorrow, will pick up new data for that day.
