Checking TV Show schedules with PowerShell

Remember the post about buying groceries with PowerShell? One of the usage examples suggested that you could order some snacks when a tv show you like is having a season finale (or premiere for that matter!).

But how to check for this in an automated way? With PowerShell of course πŸ™‚

I’ve written two advanced functions for doing this:

  • Get-TVShowNextAirDate retrieves a list of most tv shows that are currently airing and is listing their next airdate.
  • Get-TVShowAirDate retrieves all known airdates of the tv show specified (supports pipelining! πŸ˜‰ )

Screenshot of these in action:

That’s all the tools you need to automate your popcorn order! πŸ˜‰

The code can be viewed through this link (Updated 2016-10-06).

Happy automating anything!
