tv listings are dumb

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/cgi/listings.cgi?id=20060224fox04
Air Date: 3/15/06 (WEDNESDAY)
Time Slot: 8:00 PM-9:00 PM EST on FOX

Dude, that is the stupidest way to list a time.  Way to make me think it was 9pm.

Later it says "episode of BONES airing Wednesday, March 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX," which is clearer I suppose.

I'm so used to hearing stuff like "nine, eight Central" that I just assume the later time is the Eastern time.  Yeah yeah, assumptions are bad.  (And in fact I usually actually check tvguide.com/listings somewhat compulsively to make sure I have it right.)  Still miffed.  I made it home in 10 minutes, rock on.  And it's not like I was dying to see this or anything; I mean, it would have felt a touch like overkill to actually bother taping it (esp. since I'm having company these coming weekends) but since I thought I'd be home for it.  Okay, this is me moving on now.
