    The final Bush speech will be at 5 PM PST. It is supposed to be only about 10 or 15 minutes long so it should not frak up prime time very much.

    why dont they pick boring times like saturdays to do this? Adding 15 min to everything is PITA.

    The changes have shown up in the Tribune data now for NBC, CBS, and FOX.

    Good. This shouldn't mess too many people up. For one thing, us West Coasters will miss a little local news and that is all.

    Best laid plans. Keep an eye on this. If W decides to talk longer or says something remarkable (planned or unplanned) which the talking heads believe must be analyzed in depth, all bets are off.

    Unlikely, but not impossible.

    I'm glad I have a TiVo S3 with 2 cablecards and a two tuner FiOS HD DVR. I padded my 8:00 and 10:00 shows on the TiVo, and moved my 9:00 recordings to the FiOS box, and padded them. :p

    I see a 15-minute episode of My Name Is Earl on NBC and a 15-minute episode of Scrubs on ABC at 8:15 eastern. Are they planning on joining those in progress or what? I don't watch Earl and Scrubs is the first of the two back-to-back repeats from Tuesday night which I already have, but still, I'm curious. Maybe they're going to join those in progress whenever the speech ends and start the 8:30 stuff on time no matter what.

    This is what happened here:

    TiVo, set to record This Old House, New Yankee Workshop, Ask This Old House from WTVS. Guide data showed that and recorded them as directed. WTVS aired: Bush speech (in SD on the HD channel), plus commentary until 8:30, then TOH ( instead of NYW), then ATOH at the normal time.

    Also of note, WDIV played the old episode of Earl first, cutoff by the speech, then the new one second. KING (which I also get), played the new episode of Earl first, the old one second.

    It did not affect California in the least to my knowledge. The speech went a neat 15 minutes, almost exactly. I suspect the talking heads were more interested in the airline accident that ended so well.
