In the early days at Google we designed a TV Listings system that allowed people to search, discover and explore TV shows world wide. To do this, we had to gracefully deal with what the user told us (their zipcode, whether they had cable, etc.). We built a dual-wield system that allowed them to navigate either through a filtered list on the left, or a time x channel grid on the right.
