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.

Mentalist was a rerun though, wasn't it?

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.

The Following starts early!

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

Saturday Night Live will be running about 15 minutes late tonight.

(I guess because of the hockey game.)

I don't have an Eye-Alert yet, but 60 Minutes began 41 minutes late in the Detroit market. I assume CBS will be 41 minutes behind all evening.

Sunday, April 13: Golf ran 11 minutes over on CBS, 60 Minutes started 7:11 EDT. Assume CBS will be 11 minutes behind all night, AR, TGW, TM, and pad accordingly for whatever you watch.
