Re: BBC America - 2nd Change in 24 Hours
- This is very confusing to say the least. Given the extreme short notice on Torchwood's return to the schedule, maybe it's best not to consider anything on BBCA's site as written in stone.

> From May 2nd, the weekend schedule listed is the one from before the addition of Torchwood to the lineup, so I'm not taking it too seriously yet. Not that I can take any of it too seriously, as they have now changed the lineup twice in 24 hours.

frustrating waits for it to refresh.
