    That's been discussed numerous times here, and it just isn't going to happen any time in the foreseeable future. 60 Minutes is just too well established for them to change it, and Sunday nights are too big for ratings for them to just have post-game filler time when the games don't run long.

    I just watched those House and Lie To Me episodes over the last two nights. Not sure if it varied by time zone, but they started about 42 minutes late around here. Fortunately I was interested enough in the game to know it was in extra innings.

    Fox has solved this problem by starting Sunday primetime at 8pm, and letting the NFL team do a postgame show called "The OT" up until 8pm ET should games not run long.

    CBS's Eye-Lert system simply text messages you any time your local affiliate has a 4:15 pm game, as those broadcasts are scheduled to last until at least 7:30 pm, delaying 60 Minutes and all programs that come after until the middle of the night. Mass text message systems are not instant, so they have no way of telling you when 60 Minutes will start, just that it's going to start at least half and hour late, but maybe more.
