Crap, I Missed It!

Email notification webapp Crap, I Missed It! sends email notifications before a new episode of your favorite show comes back on TV, or when your favorite artist releases a new CD.

Using the web application is easy—just pick one of the topic areas and either drill down or use the search box until you get to the subscribe page, enter in your email address and click Subscribe. After confirming your subscriptions, you will receive emails each time there are updates (with all updates for a single day combined into a single email). The site has quite a few topics to choose from, including Amazon bestsellers, top YouTube videos, new music albums or concerts, movies, TV shows, and even sports scores—but the navigation could be improved if they had a site-wide search or RSS support.

Crap, I Missed It is a free service, and could come in handy whenever your favorite TV show comes back from the holiday hiatus.
