Was going to say they dropped the ball and I didn't get the email alert.
60 minutes screen crawl at 20:27 US/Eastern says Amazing Race starts at 20:35. I'm in the Buffalo market.
CBS is running two different delays for primetime depending on which football game you had in your market.
New England -V- Seattle, 23:00 minutes delayed.
Buffalo -V- Arizona, 36:00 minutes delayed.
CBS is in a singleheader week (1 game), and those weeks, there is only a delay if the game is at 4:15 ET/3:15 CT.
Then, if there is more than one late game, the first game markets join the second game until it is done...and that's the time for primetime delay.
Here in Cleveland, Browns/Bengals was the 1 PM game, there was no CBS 4:15 game, and "60 Minutes"/TAR started at 7 and 8.
CBS used to do it that way, but now they will start prime right after the game ends for your market if possible.
Unless, it's a pivotal game, or exciting overtime situation, then they'll join the other game till it ends and have only one delay for prime.
Tonight there were two delays due to two games ending at different times.
Hmm. CBS must have the ability to send multiple feeds in primetime now. At one time, they could only do two feeds at a time.
You are correct.
Last year, IIRC, they had 4 different games that ended at 4 different times so they had 4 different feeds going for East Coast/Central prime, plus Pacific 3 hours later.
Maybe a bit inside baseball here, but what technology is involved. Fiber optic?
This thread is for alerts only, not discussion. And I know I'm breaking that rule by posting here, but people subscribe to this thread to get near immediate information on programming changes, etc.
Please move discussion to a separate thread?
There has been a rain delay during today's baseball game (Giants playing Cardinals).
It has lasted nearly an hour, and it will be at least a half hour to get the tarp off the field etc. after they decide to resume. So watch out if you've got an SP for the X-Factor set to record on FOX during Primetime.
At least in the Central Time Zone (and likey in the East as well), coverage of the Jets/Patriots game ran 26 minutes over, so a half-hour pad should be sufficient to catch the complete programs in the CBS Sunday night line up.
Check your time zone accordingly.
Did you wait until 60 Minutes was over to post this?
saw in the todo list good wife was 930 and mental at 1030 yet good wife was 900 to 10 actually recorded
i have mental going 30 min over so this wasnt an issue but why would the todo record different than what was recorded? weird!
I sure hope they didn't actually start "The Good Wife" at 9 since my recording didn't start until 9:30 with 1hr padding. I don't record "The Mentalist".
Edit: I checked the beginning of the recording and it is definitely TAR.
in your case recording the mentalist woudl be a good idea..unless it's a repeat and GW is first run..then you'd be screwd lol
Just a quick heads up for WSOP fans that Monday and Tuesday's Final Table coverage could run long. There is a separate discussion thread in the Season Pass Alerts forum for discussion (please do NOT discuss here).
Since this applies to tonight's coverage (Monday), I thought I'd post this here to maximize eyes on it in time (for those that may have missed this) but,
WSOP Final Table coverage Monday night is on ESPN2, so if you have your WSOP SP set only for ESPN, please take note of this so you won't miss Final Table round 1. Tuesday's coverage is back on ESPN.
The NBC Benefit Telethon ran about 2 minutes past 9 PM. So Grimm started about 2 minutes late.
I would suggest padding Grimm and Dateline NBC by 2 minutes if you watch those shows.
Steelers/Giants coverage ran about 34 minutes long - a half-hour pad may still miss the end of CBS programs, so pad accordingly.
I believe that the CBS programs were scheduled to start at the half-hours tonight (e.g. The Amazing Race at 8:30 Eastern), so it's really at most 5 minutes late.
