I refer to this “Top 10 Blowups & Meltdowns” episode that I am sure was scheduled to run today, Tuesday, February 3, 2015.
I did a post about it last week. Here is a graphic from that post.
I went to record that episode today and it was NOT running. Some flaccid ‘encore’ mashup, from 5 seasons, “Top 10 Amazing Transformations“. I didn’t want to see that. We have already seen all of them — or at least most of them. I wanted the never before seen footage.
So what happened?
I can’t even find when the “Meltdowns” is now scheduled to be aired.
Did they run into a legal issue? (Woodstock Inn? Autoport Motel and Clems?) I do not know. I am curious. But, for now, just sharing.

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 episode — one day ahead of Sri Lankan Independence Day. There is a rumor that Anthony is redoing the historic Mount Lavinia Hotel in Sri Lanka in the next series.

Of course, it goes without saying, that the now notorious “Woodstock Inn” will feature, big time, in one or both of these shows. That seems predestined.
I am curious whether the ‘Autoport Motel’ (Pennsylvania) will get a shout-out. They should. We read the post filming commentary that rolls across the screen at the end of each episode. Right after the episode was filmed the owners of the Motel got sued, by the ex-wife of one of them, for trademark violation on the name ‘Clem’ — the Motel’s restaurant. Appears that the ex-wife also had a ‘Clems’ in Pennsylvania. Given that I am somewhat familiar with divorce, ex-wives and trademarks this struck me as odd. Was it JUST a coincidence that they got sued following all the commotion that must have ensued when the show was being taped. The ex-wife must have known about the ‘Clem’ in the Motel. If the lawsuit came about because of the publicity I have to believe others are going to get nervous. Interesting. Deanna has already instructed me to tape the 2 shows — to add to 5 we still have, unwatched, on the DVR.
I am hoping that we might even get to see a sneak preview of “The Budapest Hotel“.
