I want to crawl the list of shows on this page: tvguide.com/social/

They are loaded via ajax and/or javascript, I'm not sure how it works... but I've been told I just need to identify the url or ajax call and I can use that to access the content.

I have not been able to id it though, can you help?

Thanks,

Chris

Looks like here is your url.  http://www.tvguide.com/social/assets/handlers/trending.ashx?serviceid=80001&total=10

I found this by using firefox.  I inspected using firebug and looked at the net tab.  Looking at the responses from each request that was going out I was able to find this url for you you.  You may need to change the total parameter, but it looks like that is what you are looking for.
