TVTome is Dead - TV.com Sucks - Long Live epguides.com

theinside_gallery2.jpgI can't stress enough how much suckage occurs with the "new" TV.com - CNet really knows how to fuck things up.

Anyway, that seems to have been the import of the sudden appearance of the CNet banner at the top of the TVTome pages, and now they can kiss their users goodbye.

As far as I'm concerned, epguides.com is a much much better, faster loading, stripped down version of TVTome, and now that I've rediscovered it, it strikes me that I should have moved ages ago.

The best things about epguides is that the episode listings are on the main page, so no navigating through menus to get where you want to go.

This way, you only really have to put up with TV.com when you're looking at episode details, which need not be often. Similarly with going to the main page for news.

epguides.com seems to work with a simple google search, which is more effective that I'd have thought.

My search.ini, when I update it, will put epguides.com in place of the old TVTome search. I'll probably include the TV.com search for completeness.

God damn those CNet bastards.

And so, as Rachel Nichols' pose suggests (her of the wonderful new show The Inside), we are not amused.

I agree. I hate the new site. Didn't know it was done by CNET. It's too damn slow to load.

Well, like I say, epguides.com should be the first stop from now on, and if you need the detail from TV.com, epguides links there anyway.

TV.com sucks, I miss TV Tome. Use Wikipedia's TV IV instead: http://tviv.info/wiki/Main_Page
