A month or two back I began to notice that TV series episode dates appear about a month off (an episode which actually airs e.g. 19 May will appear as 20 June) in Chrome if I have AdBlockPlus enabled.
We can argue all day long about ads, the appropriateness of using ad blockers, etc, but core functionality of a site should never break because of privacy and ad blocking extensions.

Can you give me an example of a show for which this occurs for you?

I use Chrome under Windows 10 Pro; and use AdBlock Plus.

Er. Channeling my inner Maxwell Smart here ... "Would you believe .. the problem magically went away in the past 24 hours?!".
Many or perhaps all episodic shows displayed the problem. And I'd seen it on several of my computers.
But, now, of course, I can no longer reproduce it at all. Weird.
If it returns, I'll continue this thread.
thanks.
