    I wonder why Disney Channel’s Bunk’d and Coop & Cami Ask the World are showing up here when their premieres were on Saturday the 5th.

    I guess we’ll see what Saturday says when it’s posted. Maybe Disney Channel listed repeats on Sunday the 6th as originals by mistake.

    Do you have Star Wars Resistance at 6 PM and Marvel’s Spider-Man at 9:30 PM on Disney XD?
