    CBS coverage of the Denver v San Diego game ran 55 minutes long. For those in the affected time zones a one-hour pad for The Amazing Race will be necessary to catch the ending. A good alternative at this point would be to set a manual recording for tonight's ep and save some space.

    For those zones affected by such things, the CBS Football coverage seemed to run over just 15 minutes tonight, so a 15 minute pad of CBS Sunday night programming should be sufficient.

    This seems to apply to select markets as my market did not have a late game and everything seems on schedule.

    It rarely if ever affects the West Coast.

    What we really need is for TiVo to come up and say, hey, this show is preceded by a live show. Would you like to pad it? Just like it does for live shows.
    I just automatically pad CBS on Sunday Nights. Although I missed a CSI Miami or 2 last season and never got back into it.
    Of course on CBS most shows that get the dreaded Sunday night prime time slot are next to get the AX anyway.
    First it was the FBI missing person show, and then Cold Case. Miami will be next.

    CBS Coverage of the Raiders/Packers game went over by 41 minutes. A 30-minute pad will not be enough to catch the end of the CBS Sunday night programs. You will need one hour or set up manual recordings (for those affected by such things).

    I gave up @ a month ago and padded my SP for CSI Miami by an hour.

    Survivor Alert!

    CBS coverage of the Patriots/Broncos game ran 34 minutes over.

    If you are recording Survivor and the Reunion Show, you will want to either pad an hour, or set manual recordings to save some space.

    I don't mean to be carrying on a conversation in the alert thread but football isn't the only sport broadcast on CBS. Yesterday was golf. The next two Sundays they have college basketball. Going into March and March Madness, expect more of the same. Keep an eye out.

    Golf is usually more problematic than basketball. What usually blindsides me are sports I don't follow at all such as tennis.

    CBS is running 12 minutes behind on the east coast due to the overrun by the Basketball selection show.

    Pad accordingly.

    Selection show didn't run long.

    Perhaps you had a local portion that did?

    You could be correct. I just know it started 12 minutes late here.

    It would be safe to assume you should pad tonight on CBS as they have the NCAA tournament coverage. The current game still has 8 min left in the second half and the next game is scheduled to start at 5:30 even though the guide says it was supposed to start at 5:00. Not sure why CBS likes to kid themselves like this, they need to learn from FOX.

    Just to add, game 1 was given a 2.5 hour time slot and is running a half hour beyond that. Game 2 is scheduled for only 2 hours and like you said, the start has been pushed back giving only 1.5 hours.
