Sunday's release of my TVRage feed script was a bit buggy. Not surprisingly, the bug stemmed from the source TVRage data. Yet another problem with the TVRage feed is that it changes the "publication date" every time the feed is requested. I really can't think of a good reason for that feed to use a new publication date every minute of the day, but that is what it does. So, when I based the times in my new feed on the publication date of the source feed it caused Google Reader (and probably any other reader) to see every article as new every time the feed was refreshed.

I have made a slight change to my script that should rectify this problem. I now alter the publication date from the source feed to one second after midnight of the current day. Get the new version from my code page.
