Monday night I missed 24 because we were producing a Finance for Media Professionals seminar in our studio. I didn’t stress it because two weeks ago I missed it as well, and watched it when I woke up Tuesday morning at about 6am. Nothing like watching TV in bed on your laptop.
When I got home this Monday at about midnight, I went first to Hulu and then to the Fox web site (where I had to download their move networks plugin), fully expecting to watch the episode from that night. For both platforms, last weeks episode was the “most recent” episode.
I’m wondering when exactly they put the episode up. I know it’s before 6am on Tuesday morning, but after about 12:30 Monday night. Anyone know?
On to Comedy Central. I went to the ComedyCentral.com site tonight to watch past episodes of the Daily Show with John Stewart. The most recent episode? March 19th. Today’s date? March 24th. I’m wondering what the rationale is to delay releasing episodes that long. Why isn’t last night’s episode available?
Maybe it has to do with trading cable dollars for digital pennies.
I guess I now expect episodes to be available to watch online immediately after they air on TV. I need to get my Sling Box going again so I can place-shift and watch the Daily Show from the office cable box at home.
