When listing show dates, should I use the end of the actual day or the end of the broadcast day?

Anime TV schedules seem to use a 27-hour broadcast day; so they will say for instance that a show's first broadcast was at 25:30 on a Tuesday, when this is really at 01:30 on a Wednesday.

When entering information into the encyclopedia, would we say the show started on Tuesday (its "broadcast day") or Wednesday (the actual day it was shown)?

In the example you provide, it would be Tuesday. This was a decision made by Dan IIRC (although it isn't in the FAQs thread), I think for consistency with Japanese sources which would say give Tuesday's date even when not also quoting the broadcast time.
