I can't find my stories! Uh, I mean the game. That's going to be a common theme of today as Time Warner Cable has shuffled its channel lineup. The cable company is calling it a "theme-based" change, categorizing channels "to make surfing a breeze and finding shows simpler than ever." Oh, yes. Because I was having so much trouble finding what I wanted to watch with an onscreen guide that spells everything out for me.

And although my DVR seems to decide on its own whether it feels like recording my favorite shows, Time Warner claims that I won't have to reprogram the moody son of a bitch.



Then again, this doesn't really inspire confidence:

Also, your DVRs are not expected to lose any saved programs and future

recordings should continue as scheduled.


Not expected, huh? Really, though, the change does simplify a lot with grouping sports, news, entertainment, etc. But my brain is programmed to "change equals bad," especially when it comes to my TV.

At least we're finally getting Spike TV, VHI, Nickelodeon and the Weather Channel in HD, but not until May.
