Keep Track of New Television Show Episodes with RerunCheck

reruncheck-logoRerunCheck is a new website that lets you know whenever there are new episodes of television programs airing on tv. Although it was not actually my brain child per se, I did implement it myself. My good friend James at UltraViolet Development Studios did the web design for me, as I’m somewhat inept when it comes web design.

With Reruncheck, you can find out a few different ways whether or not your favorite TV show is airing a new episode.  First of all, you can visit the website and search for your shows.  You’ll be taken to a page that will let you know with a big green Yes if there is a new episode airing within the next 7 days.

If you are interested in receiving continuous notifications for new episodes, you can either subscribe to the feed for the show (in the upper right corner), or you can subscribe to receive notifications via email.  If you decide to subscribe via email, please be sure to read the RerunCheck privacy policy.  If you see anything in there you don’t like, then I suggest you use the RSS feed rather than email.

If you love to watch just about any show on TV, you can also subscribe to the main RerunCheck feed.  It is updated every day with all the television shows that are airing new episodes.  You can also see what programs are showing new episodes today by visiting the main RerunCheck page.  There is also a page that will let you know the television programs that are airing new episodes this week.

You can also create a new RerunCheck account, to manage all of your favorite programs in one place.  An account offers you the same email subscriptions you can receive without an account, but in addition to receiving email notifications you will also have your own custom feed.

Your custom feed will contain new episode notification for all of your favorite shows. You can share your custom feed with your friends, put it on your website, add it to FriendFeed or other social networks, or just subscribe to it yourself.  The choice is yours!

Try RerunCheck and let me know what you think. Feel free to send me any suggestions you might have for the service to help me make it better.

    This is your website Jorge? This is awesome. If you could get an iPhone app developed, I'm sure it would be a big hit as well.

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    Yep, it sure is! Yeah, one of these days I'll have to get the iPhone SDK and fool around with it.

    Nice! Do you have any plans to implement an API where one could query for the shows by means other than visiting the website? Perhaps returning the data in JSON or XML. The RSS feed for “your shows” is a nice touch. Although I wont use this service right now as my DVR records all the new episodes and ones I haven't watched but should I decide I don't want my DVR any more, I might have to subscribe to it. Who's going to write the mash-up that puts the shows into Google calendar?

    You're on the right track but you should take a look at http://tvcountdown.com/ Try implementic similarly simple design and a possibility of choosing only tvshows you like and bookmarking it this way – I should be able to go to only one site and see all of the interesting me info without any useless stuff.

    Now that would be a useful topic, not that I'm trying to hijack. I like Zap2it with its multi-color coding to highlight sports, movies, news, children shows, etc. plus most importantly, shows I've tagged as my favorites. You can toggle descriptions on/off so you have the option of seeing the description (and not just the title) in the grid without having to click on each show individually. And, oh yeah, it flags new episodes right in the grid view. I've been pretty happy with it for the last five years or so but I'm always on the look-out for anything better.

    I love rerun check, but I keep seeing the incorrect time for scrubs, which threw me off. tvrage had it right when I checked schedule and specifically scrubs, so I don't know if it's on your end or theirs.

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    I'll look into it Will, thanks for bringing it to my attention. You're right, the timeslot is off.

  • Nick

    I finally created an account today in the hopes there was a preference setting for my time zone. A couple times I've looked at the time for a show I wanted to watch and forgotten to subtract an hour for Central Time. I think it would be a great addition to save our time zone in the options and display the correct local time a show will air.

    Great job on the site!

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    Yeah, unfortunately TVRage doesn't provide timezone info in their feeds. Hopefully the do soon.

    <h2>Why UGG Boot is So Popular?</h2>

     

    Ugg boots, also spelled ugh boots and ug boots, are a style of sheepskin boot, with wool as the inner lining and a tanned outer surface worn by both men and women. Ugg boots often have a synthetic sole, although this is not universal. Uggs are popular with the teenage set, worn by girls with mini skirts, leggings, and with jeans tucked into the boots. UGGS Boots are also popular with boys, wearing jeans or tracksuit bottoms inside them most commonly.

    UGG UK Sale, In Australia and New Zealand, sheepskin boots have long been popular with people in rural occupations, such as sheep shearers, who have ready access to the raw materials,. Their popularity increased as a result of World War I and World War II, when they were popular with aviators, because of their need to keep warm in non-pressurized planes at high altitudes. An exhibit of a WWI aviator's outfit in the Canadian War Museum cites the term "fug" boots. UGG Cardy, Ugg Boots have also been popular with surfers and competitive swimmers since at least the 1960s, for keeping warm while out of the water. The terms ugg boots, ugh boots and ug boots have been used as generic terms for sheepskin boots in Australia since 1950s and 1960s, when they first appeared in advertising and other publications.

    The natural properties of sheepskin results in thermostatic benefits. Thick fleecy fibres on the inner part of the boots allows air to circulate and keep the feet at body temperature. Synthetic and faux fur boots do not have these properties and sheepskin boots are highly prized for their effectiveness. Ugg boots are designed to be worn without socks in order to maximize the benefits of sheepskin.

    What’s more, This Year’s Hottest UGG Boots StyleUGG Bailey Button Boots, is already starting to sell well. UGG UK Sale, it is not a matter of if this style sells out, but how quickly. Every year people procrastinate and then they can't find the Ugg Boots they want. So, Shop early for the best selection.

    I've noticed that a few shows (specifically Eastwick and Flash Forward) are showing up as reruns when they are not. Is that just because they are new shows? Will they show the correct rerun status soon?

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    You're right. There must be a problem with the nightly updates. I'll
    investigate. Thanks very much for informing me and citing specific shows.
    That will definitely help me to debug this.

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    I found the bug and have fixed it. Here's an interesting tidbit. The problem with Eastwick was an actual bug in my updating code. However, the problem with Flash Forward was actually an issue with my database records.

    There used to be a show on the Disney Channel also called Flash Forward that was in my database, vs. the new Fast Forward on ABC. I removed the Disney show from the database and voila! New episode!

    Thanks once again for letting me know about the problem with these shows!

    I've also noticed that some times are wrong. Specifically noticed that Heroes has been wrong recently. I missed an episode because I thought it would be on at 8c, but it's really on at 7c. RerunCheck lists it as 9pm Eastern but it's 8pm. I remember this happening with Medium once too (but it might have been because it was a two hour special episode).

    Also, I know you said there is no time-zone setting, but you get the times from TVRage which are in Eastern (in my email at least). Wouldn't it be easy enough to add or subtract for our time-zone?

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    Unfortunately it's not quite as easy as just subtracting the time. It would work for central, but the Pacific and Mountain times differ. I'm not sure how standard their air-times are with ours (i.e. if it is always the case where a 9pm Eastern show will be 9pm Mountain). You wouldn't happen to know if this is the case, would you?

    I do need to get around to writing some code to update the air times. I think the current air times are simply what they were when I first created RerunCheck. I have seen two-hour specials throw things a bit off, but you're right, I do need to update the air times.

    Seems like a lot of new shows aren't appearing on the homepage that are premiering today. I know that Tosh.0 has a new episode this afternoon as well as the new show Terrriers on FX.

  • http://geeklad.com GeekLad

    Yeah, unfortunately reruncheck has many bugs. One of these days, I'll find

    the time to revamp the site and fix the issues.
