    Don't want to quibble but mine started at 9 pm an finished within the hour and said it was an hour.

    Maybe a shift unhappened.

    I don't have a TiVo anymore so my data may have been right and others wrong. Of course, it could be checked.

    Grimm "Face Off" was cut off too here on NBC's West Coast affiliate KNTV. Luckily I had recorded Rock Center which began at 10pm and started by showing the last minute of Grimm (25 seconds of content and 35 seconds of next week's preview), yet Rock Center ended at its scheduled time of 11pm with no cutoff.

    I think it was NBC who started this crap though.
    And yes, usually, my Tivos pick up the ad shifts.

    But something seems to be going on with NBC as it's program guide seems to be slower to populate of late.

    Also, NBC pulls that crap on it's Thursday comedy block where each show runs like 10 seconds over and the final joke gets cut off of the recording.

    Cut off for me as well. Thanks for the recap of the last minute. Sounds like it was significant.

    So is anyone going to actually talk about the episode? :p What is this, a BBT thread or something?

    What happened in the episode is that my Tivo got cut off before it was over.

    The end.

    I have the Hopper with it automatically recording the entire prime time block of ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox so I don't run into issues with over-runs on those channels. It also starts recording 1 minute early and records 3 minutes after each show.

    I could swear I've always had to add a minute to Grimm…but I'll check when I get home, maybe I'm misremembering.

    This is not an episode thread, so spoilers should be tagged.

    Doesn't the episode name in the thread title automatically make it an episode thread?

    Strictly speaking, it should have a date too:

    But with the program and episode name, I think you would be silly to not be prepared for it to be a show episode, unless the title said "no spoilers" or something.

    While technically not following the rules of naming, it's an episode thread for sure, the OP is asking about an item that happened specifically in the episode and effectively would require a spoiler if it were not an episode thread... at least in my book.

    Since it is not officially an episode thread, it does indeed require spoiler tags.

    Also, the OP specifically stated that he did not intend it to be an episode thread.

    I was wrong, I didn't have padding for Grimm.. Darn, guess I'll check if the very ending is useful online, or record the On Demand to my other recorder (since they won't let me FF) and then just watch the very ending later.

    It happened again. The 3/15 episode of Grimm "Natural Born Wesen" was cut off one minute before the ending on NBC's West Coast affiliate KNTV. The following program, Rock Center, began at 10pm and started by showing the last minute of Grimm but ended at its scheduled time of 11pm with no cutoff.

    I now consider this a pattern and will add one minute of padding for all future new episodes of Grimm.

    so the thread title is "What Happened"
    and the OP specifically says
    "If anyone watched, could you do my wife a favor and let us know what happened? "

    and you think we should put spoilier tags ?

    if anybody comes to a thread named "What Happened" then they should expect to see spoilers

    and if they misread the title and decided to read the thread anyway then they should probably figure out from OP's question that they shouldn't read any further

    so

    no

    spoiler tags are required when posting, but having brain is required when deciding to read
