In short: no. The only people who have reliable enough data on when
things are going to air to suit the power of Myth's scheduler are the
people *airing* them.
While the suggestion made today that descriptive information could
usefully be community provided seems sound to me, I can't see any
reasonable way in the long term to source the schedule information
besides getting it from Master Control.
