Cable TV Rundown sheets

Anyone know a source, preferably web, of rundown info for the various cable networks such as H&GTV, Food, Style etc?

What I'm looking for is the schedule of commercial break times in a 30 or 60 min. time slot, show content times etc.

I've heard them called rundown sheets, but that was a few years ago, the term-of-art may have changed. A typical sheet might look like:

00:00 - Open & content segment 1
03:00 - Network commercial break
04:30 - Content segment 2
10:00 - Network commercial break
11:00 - Local commercial break
12:30 - Content segment 3 etc.

Any ideas?

It seems that most of the cable and network stations/companies pretty much run the breakout to commerical at the same time-at least it seems that way when I grab the remote and flip thru ;-)

How about contacting the local cable station(s) and asking them-at least that way you should be in the ballpark.

Matt,

Thank you, those are useful blank forms. I think I'll adapt some of them for my use.

What I was looking for, but probably didn't describe very well was the station/networks requirements for segments and commercial breaks. Still looking...

Those aren't typically found online. They are handed out by the various networks to the clients that need them. And they really do vary from network to network.
