    For like an NBC or Fox show like American Idol, say a show aired Tuesday night, how long does it take to appear on Hulu?

    Currently there doesn't appear to be a set schedule. The Office and a few other programs usually air within a couple of days. I looked for American Idol a few times and was unable to locate it. So I'm not sure. Does anyone else know?

    New episodes post 4-5am the day after air-date. So a show aired on Friday will usually get posted between 4 and 5am Saturday. A good way to find out when a new episode will get posted (this only works if limited trailing episodes are available) is to follow the oldest show's expiration time. When that show expires, a new episode will replace it.

    Hulu plus could not get worse...

    Hulu plus is terrible at uploading episodes of modern family, for example. Hulu plus sucks, sucks sucks. You pay for it, ther are ads, and episodes of shows you actually want are available faster and in same/better quality on YouTube. Hulu plus, get bent.

    I've noticed that Hulu has indeed been getting a bit worse with getting shows that just aired on their website. Anyone know why that is?

    The key icon means you need to log in with "Your TV provider" (a cable or satellite company that has this "TV Now" service). Sometimes the episodes will be available to all Hulu users a few weeks later, but it varies greatly depending on the show.

    This sounds dire. I stopped Hulu Plus a few months ago and, though it was exhibiting some of these problems then, it seems to have dropped off significantly since then. It's especially bad since uploading shows within a day of airing is their USP but they put so many restrictions and buffers between you and the shows, that you just want to give up!

    Usually, it only takes a day for shows to get posted on Hulu. I watch a lot of shows there, and they are always up the day after they air.
