7/31/16 - east coast. Big Brother / CBS is delayed by 41 minutes.
I take it back. My attempt to give them the benefit of the doubt was, apparently, premature.
I've always thought NBC handled overruns better than CBS- by having Dateline go to 8. I saw them do that after their AFC games for years, and also sometimes with NASCAR or golf.
They can only have that "CBS Evening News" if the preceding program is scheduled to end before 7PM.
When CBS moved BrainDead to Sunday, I should have changed the post padding to 1hr, but I didn't. Had to acquire it by magical means.
Yeah, they had Dateline scheduled from 6-7 (Central), and then adjusted the length of the show to compensate for sports overages, so e.g. if the game ended at 6:40, they'd have a 20-minute episode of Dateline. CBS could do the same thing with 60 Minutes, but they won't. Apparently not enough of their audience is on DVRs yet for it to be worth their while.
(My joke has always been that 7:00 is past the 60 Minutes crew's bedtime, so they can't stay up late enough to do it live.)
CBS didn't even have CBS Weekend News following Golf this week, at least for the East, Central and Mountain time zones.
Sunday went from Golf directly into 60 Minutes for most time zones.
Yeah, when it first hit the Guide Data there was a newscast from 5-6 (Central), but at some point they extended golf to 6.
So their willful cluelessness as to how to handle sports overruns continues unblemished!
I wonde rif ABC ever had any issues with NASCAR? like the one race in 07 that went to ESPN2 at some point?
Important alerts only in this thread - no chit chat please...
Yeah I forgot about that. Sorry.
I guess tennis ran long so they started coverage of the baseball game on ESPN2, so the WSOP coverage started 11 minutes late.
Too late now, but I'd guess CBS prime time was delayed in places like Florida, Houston, New Orleans, Atlanta, Nashville, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Chicago, etc.
4:00 ET NFL games are back. All of those markets (and/or entire states) had a 4:00 game from CBS yesterday. (Plus markets on the west coast but that wouldn't delay prime time).
"World Cup of Hockey 2016" coverage ran long causing a 19 minute delay in WSOP coverage.
Chargers/Colts will push 60 minutes & NCIS LA back tonight.
Edit: 20 minutes late.
The Rams/Bucs game might delay the Simpsons?!
Not in NYC...
Just in Bucs home region
Game is set to resume at 8:28 P.M. so Simpsons will be delayed indefinitely in Tampa market and secondary market areas.
to think of it that was the longest that the Simpsons was delayed(even if it was just in the Buccaneers home area)
Please note tonight's updated show schedule: 7:27p est/6:27c for #60minutes, 8:27p for #NCISLA, 9:27p for #MadamSecretary, and 10:27p for #Elementary.
