You don't seem to understand how those plex channels work. CBS, ABC, NBC, CW, PBS, etc have nothing to do with the plex channel. The plex channels are just apps that get the content form the network websites.
CBS chooses to put new episodes on cbs.com the day after they air. ABC chooses to wait 8 days before putting content on there website.

There are apparently some differences. Whether it's the way it's programmed or what. For example:

No commercials when streaming through Plex channels. (A major plus as there now seems as many commercials streaming from the network apps as there are during a regular broadcast)

ABC for example makes available the last episode of some shows earlier than a week as long as you are a subscriber to one of their partner providers. I subscribe to Cablevision (as well as DirecTV) and was able to put in my credentials on the ABC app and stream Rookie Blue. The latest episode was NOT available on the Plex ABC channel.

I'm sure you're right that they just get what's up on the website, but I generally try to avoid the website if I can use the Plex channel because of no commercials.

Now we just have to watch the ToDo list to make sure they get scheduled in case TiVo thinks it's already recorded them. The article notes the air date has been changed so that may mean the 28 day rule doesn't impact the recordings.
As of this morning, my Tivo knows the correct episode titles AND that it needs to record them for both Unforgettable and Reckless. I'll check again Sunday before the episodes, but for now, looks good.

TiVo seems to have been better at this lately.

I just pad any Sunday night shows on CBS by an hour, unless the late game runs into overtime. If that happens I can just add more padding on the fly in WMC. The past couple of seasons it has only affected The Good Wife, but I may have to check out Madame Secretary and see if it's worth sticking around for.

I, on the other hand, would have checked it out had it been on any other network (or night). But not on CBS Sundays.

If there's something I want to see, I deal with it. I've been watching 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race and The Good Wife for years despite this. It's just not a big deal. With modern tech, it's pretty easy to deal with actually.

A little of both, I suppose. The show is something that kinda interests me, but checking it out on CBS Sundays just isn't worth it.

I once gave up a CBS show that I had enjoyed for years (Without a Trace) when it moved to Sundays because it got to be too much of a hassle.

I thought I was all done padding CBS Sunday nights when they moved The Amazing Race. Then they went and added CSI to Sundays so I guess I am not done yet.

I spent eight years in the Navy to allow people to do what they please as long as they don't hurt anybody, so YES this is my protest. Is there a problem with that? The only exception I make to the CBS rule on Sunday is the Survivor Finale and Reunion show. If Survivor itself was moved to Sunday I would cancel my season pass.

Nope, nothing wrong with that at all, just curious why anyone would want to just ignore a show they might enjoy just because it's a hassle to take two minutes and pad it on your DVR. But to each their own. I do get that Sunday nights tend to be crowded with must see stuff, so I could see it losing a battle with some of those other shows because of that hassle. For me, not watching an excellent show like The Good Wife over something like this is silly. And the fact that I've recorded the other shows I watch that night means that I just sometimes watch live because I watch the first three shows of night on CBS anyway. Considering there's usually some baseball or NFL game to switch to during commercials makes the pain that much less.
