    Just to let everyone know that if you like Amazing Race and have a season pass to record it this season....

    Make sure you ADD AN HOUR to record at the end of the show.

    Why?

    Because on SUNDAY's (When Amazing Race shows) CBS is NOTORIOUS for letting SPORTS (Football, Golf, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, etc..) Run up to an hours OVERTIME....

    When looking at the CBS sports schedule for Sunday from now until December. I see that their is a 99% chance that you will miss at least 30 min to the full hour of AMAZING RACE 13, if you don't add an hour to the end of your season pass.

    Or in other words... Amazing Race 13 won't be starting on time & COULD POSSIBLY start up to an Hour later than scheduled.

    Just passing this Info along to all the lovers of "Amazing Race"

    I set up my Season Pass last night and did just that. I was reminded to do so because I lost half of my 60 Minutes recording due to football.

    Yes, in ET/CT, it's almost guaranteed that it will start/end late, since many weeks CBS has a late football game on and when it does, that game usually goes past 7, or they switch to one that is still going on if yours ends early.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    BTW, this thread should be in "Now Playing - TV Show Talk" or "Season Pass Alerts." I only saw it because it was at the top of the "recent threads" list when I logged on.

    As noted in my own thread in the Alerts forum, since we also record cold case, we leave TAR alone and Pad Cold Case by an hour.

    At this point, it's the 60 minutes effect. CBS refuses to cut into that show. They really need to do what Fox does and just have a postgame show that is always on from 7-7:30 and just start sunday prime time a bit later.

    One of the few times when living on West coast is an advantage for scheduling purposes...
    I'm excited that this is the 1st season shot in HD (as is Survivor).

    Really?

    I don't recall hearing that.

    ETA: Nope, not in HD, at least according to CBS.

    Guess that means I should switch the season pass to the non-HD CBS channel and save myself some space (especially with all the football padding)

    No, keep it on the HD channel. Survivor will be in HD. CBS says so right on the home page for the show: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/survivor/.

    I think he was talking about his season pass for the Amazing Race.

    The Amazing Race is definitely NOT in HD. The producers said they were just happy to be renewed and currently had no plans to move to HD.

    And I already set up my recording to pad an extra hour. I almost stopped watching CBD Sundays because of this, but I really like TAR.

    it's cheaper than buying a dvr expander.
