It's been Calamity Jane since I downloaded the monthly schedule, which was January 27.  (At least, that's the last time I modified the file, and I don't think I did anything other than convert it to a .txt file.)

It was “The Madness....” according to the TCM website schedule checked within two weeks prior to airing…in short, TCM program scheduling is unreliable within a two-week time frame. 👎

That's nothing.  There are some of us who have waited for a certain movie to air, those of you know who you are, and only during the last HOUR OR TWO it is changed on the online schedule.

I've probably said this before. Whether we like it or not, as with every other TV channel, TCM's schedule is always subject to change. Most channels do make changes, but I think it's more noticeable here because so many of us look farther ahead  and with greater anticipation than the average viewer of the other ones.

Having worked as a station movie programmer, I do understand that most of the times the changes have to do with rights or distributor issues that TCM can't control. Having said that, if I was programming TCM, I wouldn't even think of putting anything on the schedule until it was firmly locked up and we had a copy of the movie in hand.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I watched Return to Glennascaul on TCM within the past couple of years.

Yup.  This is the only one of these I will be verifying tonight.  I pulled up the source files.  They did in fact play it March 2018 (2018-03).  Then it was scheduled 2018-10 and dropped.  It is also scheduled to be played again 2019-03.

I also pulled up the main output table, the one I post online, and it agrees.

There perhaps may in fact be some things not quite as expected in life, "Omigod!  TCM is sooo hard to get to these days!", but I don't think this is one of them.
