    Any channel that runs a show with a scheduled extra minute... ABC seems to be most guilty though with Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy running until 10:02 this week.

    Annoys the hell outta me. :thumbsdown:

    Just venting.

    I resolved this by not watching Private Practice nor Grey's Anatomy. Your mileage may vary, but it works well for me.

    in front of...
    That makes me mad when I play the show recorded after Grey's Anatomy and accidentally see the end of a show I haven't watched yet. Grrrrr.

    I've got 7 HD DVRs and a couple of SD ones, so I dedicate a DVR to a specific network, go ahead and pad recordings, etc. I find myself this fall season with NOTHING - not one program - being recorded off of ABC. I used to watch According to Jim, and Lost is still set as a SP, but that's it. Nothing on ABC interests me in the least.

    That just leaves me more room to record some of the new DirecTV HD channels! :)

    Sounds familiar. I've got 18 active Season Passes between my two boxes, and the only ABC show is Dirty Sexy Money. (The last non-game show on ABC I remember having an SP for was 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, and I got rid of that after the John Ritter episodes finished airing.)

    Then again, that's one more than the number of CBS shows I record regularly (at least until The Price Is Right starts airing new episodes again in a couple of weeks)...

    Mad Men has been clipped at the beginning since we record Grey's and The Office (one hour version), but we don't miss much other than "previously"....blah blah...

    Same in our house...we watch Acc to Jim and Lost...and there's nothing even REMOTELY of interest to us on ABC other than those two.

    This is really annoying, but NBC has been doing this for years with their half-hour comedies on Thursdays.

    Funny thing is, there's at least one example, that I can't remember, where the specific network is better this year than previous years.

    I think it's either CBS with Monday night comedies, or NBC with Thursday night comedies.

    I'm pretty sure it was CBS.. Except for the 9:30 show, each show was ending almost exactly at the end of the end credits/production page. I noticed this with at least two data points, so it wasn't complete luck.

    I *think* NBC was slightly better too, but I'm not positive.

    I'm really screwed because a couple of the local affiliates (CBS and ABC) run a couple minutes late ANYWAY. That, combined with the shows running late, mean I have to pad about 10 minutes.

    One bedroom apartment. All of those plus a DVD player and a VCR are connected to one 60" Sony Wega HDTV. Although I'm finding that my living room is running about 10 to 15 degrees warmer than my bedroom! The ambiant heat may serve me well this winter, but it was heck on the A/C bill this summer!
