      no, its at 9, the one at 8 is an old episode

      1. re: shoelace

        According to my cable guide, 8pm is new. At 9pm I see Crimes of the Century.

        1. re: avitrek

          My cable guide says that too, but if you look at CNN schedule online, it confirms what shoelace says. We shall see..

            if youre in ny, the old episode from eason 1 is on 100 or regular cnn, the new episode is on 105 or cnn IN

            1. re: shoelace

              You must have a different cable provider than some of us . I do not have CNN IN , and my channel for CNN is not 100. Will try at 9.

              I watched part of that recap episode wondering WTF?

        2. I live in Manhattan and use Fios. I was disappointed because the schedule indicated the new episode on Jerusalem at 8:00 PM. Instead there was a repeat on Myanmar. Does anyone know if the new episode is going to be shown later this week?

          1. Was anyone on TimeWarner successful in seeing it? I searched via my Tivo and haven't been able to find the episode. It was heavily promoted. Disappointed... and wondering why?

              The schedule was wrong. I listened to shoelace and recorded CNN at 9pm even though the guide was showing a different program. I haven't watched the full episode yet, but I confirmed at the start that the 9pm show was the new episode.

            2. I watched it. It was very political and seemed to be very pro Palestinian. Was not about the food at all.

                i agree

                i found it to be really political

                theres always some politics in these shows, but this seemed really excessively one sided

                1. re: pitagirl

                  +1 Had I known, I wouldn't have bothered watching it. Really disappointing.

                  1. re: EmpireState

                    there are also certain places you have to go in israel- to be in jerusalem and not go to the machane yehuda- specially bc its the type of place he would have gone in any other country- means that the show was approached with an agenda, and that agenda wasnt food

                    1. re: shoelace

                      I was shocked too that he didn't go to the machane yehuda, which IMHO is one of the best markets in the world.

                      But I doubt there was any political agenda. I'd rather he focused on food rather than Israeli West Bank settlers and Palestinian women racing cars. But then I just watched his show about Kurdistan and I'd say that maybe 10% of the show was about food. Seriously. It's too bad.

                      1. re: davidg1

                        Agree. To travel to Jerusalem and not cover the machaneh yehudah (Jewish Market) is proof positive he didn't go there to do a show about food. That would be like coming my to my home Portland OR and not cover our Portland Farmers Mkt, which is a must-do destination for anyone who cares about food. Oh wait. He did that also.

                  2. re: pitagirl

                    I was impressed by how even handed it was. Much more than I expected. I enjoyed seeing the guy who wrote the cookbook "Jerusalem" I would butcher his name. I guess the lens you look through determines if you think it was one sided.
