The non-specific answer is that you've enabled:
Reschedule Higher Priorities
Move higher priority programs to other cards and showings when resolving
conflicts. This can be used to record lower priority programs that
would otherwise not be recorded, but risks missing a higher priority
program if the schedule changes.
The details depend on the details of your schedule.
