Who knows what FMC is showing

I was looking through my satellite box guide, and noticed that what's left of FMC is supposed to air Born to Be Bad tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM. The only thing is, the box guide is saying it's in a 60-minute time slot, while I was certain the movie clocked in at about 64 or 65 minutes. Maybe not, at least on the last point: IMDb says the movie is 62 minutes. And the remnants of FMC's web site says that Born to Be Bad is airing at 7:30 AM, followed by Caprice at 8:32 AM -- something that would be consistent with the movie running 62 minutes.

Perhaps what's more interesting is a bit later in the day. Both the box guide and the FMC site have Caprice on the schedule, although obviously the box guide says it's starting at 8:30 AM. The next movie comes up at 10:30 AM, and here the box guide and FMC differ quite a bit. The box guide, as well as one of the online listings services I checked, claim the following movie will be The Man With One Red Shoe. FMC's site, on the other hand, says it will be Emperor of the North. I should point out that the various box guides and online listings sites (and by extensions, the ones in your local newspaper or other print sources) get their information from a low number of companies, so both of these could have received the same wrong information from the same source.
