    busterfrostyOnly thing I can think of is maybe try another character or start up a new game

    Calex dEUSNo real trouble getting these until the final 2. Nearly 200 days as Arthur and still not seen them, so I moved on to my Sally playthough and they were the first 2 I heard at their times.

    The shows play at the same times every day. The list below includes which shows are at which times so you can sleep to fast forward to the time slots that contain the shows you need instead of checking all of them. I've formatted the times the same way the game does for your convenience.

    HERE'S THE TRICK:
    1) Find a house with a TV, a radio, and a bed.
    2) Kill or knock out all of the residents so you don't have to worry about them.
    3) TURN THE TV OFF and TURN ON THE RADIO so you can hear it when you're standing in front of the TV.
    4) Go to sleep until the first time slot you need.
    5) Wake and go to the TV. Wait until you hear the show start on the radio then turn the TV on.
    6) You should see a message popup in the bottom left of your screen that says "You collected name of show - name of episode" within about 3 seconds.
    7) Once that pops up (or doesn't) turn off the TV and head back to the bed to sleep until the next time slot you need.

    Notes:
    - Every time you sleep (outside of a few specific spots in missions) the game will autosave your progress. You can see the save icon pop up in the upper right hand corner.
    - You do not have to watch the whole show! Once the message pops up, you're good. This includes if you just catch the last few seconds. So don't worry about making sure you only sleep up until the last interval before it starts. So long as it's still playing when you get there and turn on the TV you should be good.
    - If it doesn't pop up within a few seconds, turn the TV off and back on again, if it still doesn't show up, you probably already have that one so go sleep it off until the next one!

    Update: It looks like this can be done with a radio as well from a shelter but it still requires turning the radio of and on again for the shows to register.

    The video below shows the process. The first show didn't popup the alert by the time it normally would have so I knew it must be one I'd previously collected so I went back to sleep and the second one shows the notification popping up:

    Bungling NinjaI'm kinda mad because I wasted sooooooo much time trying to get this damn achievement and wasn't ever getting credit for the shows. Now I'm almost done with it.

    SashamorningLast one won't show up. I'm 32 days in. It's a 4:00 show. Grrr.

    Other than that, perfect solution. +1

    LeiChatThanks for the guide.
    I noticed today that you can also walk up to one of the screens hanging from buildings in the streets and it will credit you with collecting the shows.

    Grimace221Around day 900 with Arthur, I finally gave up with Arthur and decided I would try on another playthrough. Started the Sally playthrough, and got the rest of the episodes almost instantly. So anyone that is struggling with this, I would suggest just trying to get them on Sally or Ollie.

    BlakManDanTimes for TV are 7am, 12pm, 4pm, 7.30pm & 10.30pm. I switched the tv off and on for it to unlock for me.

    I hear you - my husband sleeps in a small bed, was first for me.
    News Hour - News Items did not appear for me but still unlocked the achievement.
