    Don't know what was on CBS this afternoon, but The Amazing Race did not start right on time. Pad it by 30 minutes to be safe.

    Golf tournament on CBS went into sudden death that lasted two holes. It takes a long time to start because they have to go back to a hole where the TV cameras are already set up.

    CBS once stopped airing a golf tournament (at least in the Eastern and Central time zones) at 7 Eastern, and didn't hear the end of it (even Sports Illustrated commented on it); the next week, CBS announced that they would never cut away from a live sporting event again (which led to Dan Rather walking off the CBS News set a few years later, but that's another story).

    PGA Tour schedule with TV networks - the next CBS tournament is The Masters.

    In the Central time zone (and Eastern, too), they cut coverage on CBS at 5 minutes past the hour and announced the continuing coverage would air on the Golf Channel. CBS' Sunday night programming was only delayed five minutes.

    Amazing Race should just have a 1 hour pad on it no matter what. They screw it up more than they don't.
