    Depends on how long he talks, how late he starts, how much time they want their talking heads to rehash it, and what they had planned to show that night, and how big an audience they expected for it If it's a season premiere or season finale, they'll probably bump it up to half an hour, maybe even more.

    If it's a re-run, they'll probably just skip it.

    The night of the State of the Union Speech, they have more advance notice, and are more likely to not show stuff at all, i.e., not schedule it that night in the first place, rather than start it late.

    I can remember when for the State Of the Union, they would delay the 10 P.M. EDT show and air it in its entirety and the late news would start late. Just like NFL on Sundays(although the delay would be maybe 1 or 2 minutes at best) this was in the 80s and up to the mid 90s the networks I guess realized that having the late news starting late wasn't such a good idea so now they do analysis up to 11 P.M. EDT

    Ug. All my recordings have the end cut off because of Obama's propaganda. Now I am forced to go looking for alternative sources.

    An idea: Set this thread up for instant email notification. Or even have it send you a SMS when there is activity. That way you can adjust or pad in advance.

    We all share the pain of missing the end of recordings.

    I recommend moving to a country where there is no president. Of course, that will mean that you will have programs pre-empted by the Dictator instead. Sucks to be you. :p

    You should be grateful you are not subjected to Fidel Castro's marathon speeches!

    Can I report this post as being political in nature? :D

    Sorry, Fidel's off-shore, and as a Republican Senator once pointed out "politics stops at the water's edge."

    :D

    Why is this still a problem in the age of digital TV? Is there not any metadata in the signal identifying the current program?

    In this country, TV broadcasts don't talk to DVRs. Doesn't matter if it's analog, digital, cable, etc.

    Sunday, Dec 20th

    Due to length of Steelers/Broncos game, 60 Minutes starts about 7:00 CT, Undercover Boss starts around 8:00 CT and CSI:Cyber starts around 9:00 CT (may start a minute or two later and run a minute or two late, so set DVR accordingly).

    BIG ISSUE: CSI:Cyber will start about a half hour EARLIER than what the guide had shown!

    Madame Secretary will not be shown.

    Football ran long on CBS (as usual), so there's a new schedule this evening (all times Eastern):

    60 Minutes (started at 8:01pm)
    Undercover Boss
    CSI: Cyber

    Madam Secretary was a repeat and has been cut. Undercover Boss will be half an hour late and CSI:Cyber is starting around half an hour early.

    Please adjust your recordings as needed.

    "CSI:Cyber is starting around half an hour early."

    But my TiVo will only let me start the recording a maximum of 10 minutes early, so once again thanks to apparently no one on the TiVo design team having any familiarity with East Coast television, I'm going to have a mislabeled recording.

    At least you saw in time to record the whole thing. And I'm sorry, I fail to see how this is TiVo's fault. A scheduled program should never start early.

    San Diego-Denver game no way is going to finish by 7:30 PM EST, so 60 Minutes and rest of CBS line up will be bumped.
