Serengeti II isn't on the schedule on the BBC Earth site either, but that's just a customized view of the Zap2it data. I would suggest either setting a manual timer, or checking again next week to see if BBC Earth has updated the guide data. One other note: Zap2it lists the episodes as Serengeti Season 2.
