ISO site that does TV recommendation based on interests

Is there a cable tv listing site that suggest shows based on interests (tagging perhaps?)

My friend just convinced me to get cable so I can watch Project Runway, which is a great show. But with all these channels, I am having a tough time finding out what's on and what's not?

I have tried TVguide.com but I don't find it very useful.

There are a few criteria that I'm looking for:
+ ability to enter interests as filters
+ ability to highlight popular shows (I am a designer and thus needs to know what people are watching these days)
+ ability to see a timeline that extends for the entire week.

I would like to see a way to construct a tv calendar around my regular schedule.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
See-ming

Heh. Someone asked a very similar yesterday. Spooky.

Disclaimer: I work for the company that powers this site. AOL TV Listings can do what you want, I think.

Haven't read the other thread, but:

I think evoketv.com used to do this? But they are no more (bought by tvguide.com)
Perhaps MeeVee

I use MeeVee and it definitely lets you enter interests and/or specific shows as favorites.

You can view schedules in 3-hour, 1-day and 1-week blocks.

You can also send a program request to your TiVo from their listings.

I have to say that I had to do a double take when I saw this question. I asked the one yesterday and I wondered how the heck it got moved up to today.

Having investigated my whole two options from yesterday, I'd have to say that MeeVee, as recommended above, will probably do the job. I need to go mark best answer, I guess. It could be so much better, though.

Hey guys thanks so much for the recommendation to MeeVee!

I checked them out a few days ago and I can't love it more. Blogged about it today.

I can't thank you enough. I'm hooked. Now I am even thinking of getting a TiVo after I found this gem.

Cheers,
