    they ran abbreviated versions of 60 Minutes after the following games:
    Browns-Bears, 4:15, CBS, Greg Gumbel, Phil Simms
    Browns-Packers, 4:15, CBS, Jim Nantz, Phil Simms
    Ravens Chargers in 09 with Dick Enberg and Dan Fouts
    the Bills Jets game a few years ago(60 Minutes got preempted that time)
    wasn't there a game before the CBS at 75 special? Yep. Bengals-Cardinals, 4, CBS, Don Criqui, Steve Tasker or Steelers-Seahawks, 4, CBS, Dick Enberg, Dan Dierdorf I had Sunday Ticket at the time and can remember neither Criqui or Enberg saying that 60 Minutes would be seen in its entirety I wonder what CBS would have done if there was OT at either game that night

    "In the day," if a sporting event ran 30 minutes or longer over (and this happened quite often with CBS's golf coverage, as if the event needed a playoff, there was a delay while the golfers had to get back to the first hole where the TV cameras were located), a program would be pre-empted, although it was never 60 Minutes. Occasionally, CBS would mess its west coast feed up by airing the following programs an hour earlier than advertised.

    I vaguely remember seeing a 60 Minutes story air, and then air again one or two weeks later, with the explanation that, the first time, it only aired in the west.

    Also, there were Presidential campaign ads that would run in the last five minutes of a time slot; in those situations, the networks would actually cut five minutes from a program (and air the entire version when it was repeated).
