Batman and Robin heads-up

TCM has been running the late 1940s serial Batman and Robin for the last couple of months. Tomorrow is the finale, although if you've been recording it you'll want to pay close attention to getting the finale.

The episodes have been airing every Saturday morning at 10:00 AM, since they're a little under 20 minutes each. But tomorrow's finale begins at 10:15 AM. That wouldn't be a big deal, except that the final chapter is listed as being 17 minutes, and the next Bowery Boys movie is listed at beginning at 10:30 AM. The Bowery Boys movie, Bowery Bombshell, is listed at 66 minutes, with another short following at 11:45 AM.

The 10:15 starting time for Batman and Robin is, I think, not a mistake either. The previous movie, Seven Seas to Calais starts at 8:30 AM and runs 102 minutes, which puts the ending of that fairly close to the 10:15 AM start time for the Batman and Robin serial.
