    CBS coverage of the Titans/Broncos game ran over by 27 minutes. A 30 minute pad should be enough to get the full Amazing Race finale and The Mentalist.

    Did anyone get the exact starting time for the Mentalist?

    Must have messed up my Eye Alerts subscription.

    It's 10:19pm est here in ATL. Mentalist is scheduled for 10pm, but it's not on yet.:confused:

    Never mind. Started at exactly 10:27 as advised above.

    9:25 CST, no Mentalist yet. And no CBS Eye-Alert.:confused:

    I do a one hour pad, so I'm not worried, but this is the first time the iAlert hasn't been sent.

    Due to NFL football overrun, CBS prime started 27 minutes delayed in the following markets: Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, Houston, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.

    Here in Eastern NC 60 minutes started on time.

    Perhaps because there was something in between the end of the game and it that WNCT was comfortable either joining late or dumping altogether.

    The real problem is when the game or golf or whatever starts late enough that they don't have anything scheduled in between, and so can't check to see if the 6:00 local or 6:30 CBS news started on time to get some advance warning.

    I set out to watch my Sunday night animated shows on Fox TV last night, and none of the four of them was on. It wasn't a game, but some kind of show about a game - or something - throughout the entire two hours of recordings. Anyway, I don't recall ever having had that happen.

    I'm in the West, on Pacific time. I don't see any indication of those shows airing again any time soon. Next week there are new episodes on the Tivo guide but the weird thing is that it shows them starting at 5pm, instead of 8pm and THEN shows about football.

    CBS Coverage of the Chiefs/Raiders and Jets/Panthers games ran over by 25 minutes according to the Eye-lert I received. Those in an affected area should be able to pad Survivor Finale and Survivor Reunion shows by 30 minutes and be good to go.

    NYC was also a 6-minute delay. I'm technically skipping the reunion special and padding the episode itself by 90, to avoid any gap at 10 pm during the final tribal/vote.

    Looks like they screwed the Eye Alerts up this time. At least for me. I got alerts the Mentalist would start at 10:01 and Elementary at 11:01. They actually started about 6 min earlier.

    Yeah. I guess that's why there was probably not much concern about being so accurate about the timing.

    CBS had 2 late double header games.

    One ended 25 minutes late, the other 31 minutes late.
    Your start time depended on which of the 2 games your affiliate aired.

    Then throw in that some affiliates were switched to the earlier ending game, even though they aired most of the later ending game, but weren't switched back to the later ending game since it was a blowout.

    (running one of the affiliates affected by the last scenario, but in the Mountain Time Zone which made the start time of prime moot anyway)

    Why don't people just pad for an hour for everything on Sunday nights? Since I started doing that, I stopped worrying about the schedule.

    Yeah, I pad The Good Wife by one hour and only worry about it enough to make sure the run over is not more than that? Since CBS started running things 30 min late on Sundays with a late game, it's never been more than an hour.

    The Eye-lert I just received indicated the CBS Sunday night line up is starting 4 minutes behind schedule. Pad accordingly.

    Oddly the Following started at 10:18 Eastern. You might be able to grab a buffer.
