Import Your TV Shows Into Google Calendar

Here is a cool website for all of you who use Google Calendar. CAT is a website that allows you to click which shows you watch and add them to a calendar. You can then download the ical file and upload it to your Google Calendar. All of your shows that you watch will display at the correct time with the relevant info. Great way to keep track of what shows you are watching now that they are starting back up again! They don’t have all of the shows yet but they have all of the major ones. I think new shows are being added. My current lineup?

How I Met Your Mother
The Office (starts Sept 27th)
Heroes (starts Sept 24th)
and my favorite guilty pleasure and best tv show ever…..THE HILLS!! haha I admit it!

If you are not currently using Google Calendar, I highly recommend it. I’ve been using it for the past year and can’t live without it now. I have a horrible memory and this helps me remember birthdays and events that I am going to.

PS. Remember to change the time setting on CAT to your time zone.

Perfect timing! What a great find! I’m going to do that right now – I can’t wait for all those shows plus House MD.

Awesome! Question though: I’ve gone to CAT and selected my filters. When I browse through the months it shows all the upcoming episodes, but when I download the iCal file and import it into Google Calendar, I only get listings up to the end of the month.

Is there a way to get listings further in advance?
