    Thanks for sharing the info Mike! I am thrilled to hear Hannibal finally has a premiere date! I will definitely be tuning in to see how it fares once I see it show up on my DVR. I do work late nights at DISH and usually forget to record things, so luckily for this show I won’t have to remember to set an individual recording timer, since it’ll automatically record on my DISH Hopper each week. I have a feature enabled where all of the primetime shows on the four major network’s record automatically for me each night, so thankfully I never miss a moment of the new primetime shows I’m looking forward to!
