The Great TV Listings Debate Rages On

December 21, 2006 4:24 PM

A few weeks my blog entry about Yahoo’s revamped TV listings provoked a flurry of feedback from discontented users of the new service. Many of those users suggested other listings, such as Zap2it.

Last night I decided to check out Zap2it, rather than rely on the clunky old school way of actually turning on the TV and wading my way through the Comcast program guide.

I wanted to see when NBC’s “The Office” and ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” would be on next.

I’m pleased to report Zap2it is quick and easy to use—I was able to both search for my shows and also quickly scroll through the guide to find out when they are on again.

The sad news is they aren’t on for two more weeks. I guess I’ll drown my sorrows in eggnog and Dr. McDreamy reruns.
