Weird streaming premiere airtime

Three shows from the same web channel:

https://www.tvmaze.com/shows/52311/gold-rush-freddy-dodges-mine-rescue
https://www.tvmaze.com/shows/52245/six-degrees-with-mike-rowe

All three have exactly the same settings: no default airtime, no airtime for the premiere episode. Despite that, on the countdown page they're displayed at different time: https://i.imgur.com/A0q36HM.png

TL;DR All today's discovery+ premieres are shown at 12:00, except Six Degrees with Mike Rowe, which is shown at 07:00

This happened because you created the Mike Row episode before changing Discovery+ from a global to a local (US) web channel (in the first case the timezone is UTC, in the latter America/New_York).

Making such a change on the web channel doesn't retroactively update the timestamp for existing episodes. But changing the episode back and forth (like adding then removing the airtime) once should straighten it out.

But all global premieres are also shown at 12:00. Shouldn't the episodes have the same timestamp as any other global show?

Yeah, but one is set to 12:00 in GMT, the other to 12:00 in GMT-5.
