Several months ago, I noticed that when I go to the "On Tonight" [tv schedule] link (http://www.imdb.com/tvgrid/2016-12-12/2000/?ref_=nv_tvv_ls_2&;); the information is displayed skewed to the right. The columns float to the right across the page.  I made a screen print to illustrate my problem.  I have tried logging off and on; cleared my cache; refreshed my screen; stood on my head (okay, I didn't do that); but I can't get this to display right. I searched for this problem, but couldn't find it being discussed. Please help! Thank you.

Hi Morjana Coffman,

You did everything I would initially recommend. I was not able to replicate the problem. When I tried the link you supplied, it appeared normal as shown below.

This may be an account related issue or it could be specific to your PC / laptop. Regardless, it may be difficult to diagnose.

What browser and operating system are you using?
I'm using Firefox 50.0.2 and Windows 7 Professional

Do you have access to someone else's PC/Laptop. If so, try the link while logged off, then logged on.

Are you using any add-ons for your browser?

If you are using a "Chrome" browser, try this:

Go to:   chrome://settings/fonts

Find the "Minimum font size" slider.
Slide it all the way to the left.
Then click the "Done" button.

Thanks Nobo,

This should be helpful for Morjana Coffman if she is using Chrome. There are similar settings for other browsers.

When I check http://www.imdb.com/tvgrid/2016-12-12/2000/?ref_=nv_tvv_ls_2&; in chrome when I am logged out of IMDb, the page looks fine.

These are my font setting for Chrome, which I believe are the default. As you indicated in your post, the "Minimum font size" slider should be all the way to the left.

chrome://settings/fonts

Dan, thanks for providing that screenshot.

My bad.    I should have included a similar screenshot in my reply above
(as I did when I solved the same problem for someone else in 2015).

We have decided to remove the TV Listings Grid for a couple of reasons.
Not only did the TV Listings Grid have low usage...
http://www.imdb.com/tvgrid/ goes to http://www.imdb.com/tv/
