My wife's DVR has a manual Season Pass to The Daily Show for the
morning repeat of the previous night's episode. A couple of times
each month a movie will preempt the Monday morning show.
When I see this in the To Do List, I delete that scheduled item.
If a movie doesn't preempt the Monday morning show, it typically
is a repeat of the Friday episode.

The M-F Season Pass was easier to setup than 4 separate weekday
passes for Tuesday through Friday and it is only one entry in the
Season Pass list.

They problem with that is that you can't record anything that ends at
11:00 or starts at 11:30. Until Comedy Central gets its act together,
I'll just have to keep missing my moment of zen.

That's certainly true, though I personally don't forsee any conflicts
that I wouldn't want TDS to win.

But I'm recording the 7am slot manually... no competition there in my
house.

I didn't think cable channels had censors. If they do, then it is highly
unlikely there would be censors on hand for repeat showings of the
previously taped program. None of The Daily Show airings is live,
but is taped earlier in the evening if not a repeat episode.

I suspect all the talk about what is or isn't censored is no more
than buzz about the show. Jon Stewart is smart enough to know
what would be clipped or not, and wouldn't say something that
gets bleeped unless he wants the bleep to occur. In other words,
the bleeps are intentional and scripted. It's done to make the
program seem daring and cutting edge.
