    My Tivo Guide has gotten as far as Sunday January 23rd and shows a new episode of Hawaii 5-0. I am mystified as to why but at least it doesn't seem to have interfered with anything.

    I better check the schedule again and pad if needed but I doubt it since I live on the West Coast. Any overage of the game can be absorbed by local news.

    Hawaii 5-0 is normally on Monday so something weird is happening on Monday the 24th. Football is only on Saturday's and Sundays right now.

    A "Hawaii Five-O" repeat is airing in its regular time slot on the 24th.

    Right after the AFC championship game, probably trying to get new viewers.

    And if I'm not mistaken, H5O will air right after the football game in every single time zone. So yes, padding will be essential.

    Like i said in 2nd Post, AFC game (CBS's biggest game of year) is on before it.

    Just like Fox is doing with GLEE after the superbowl, CBS is putting it's most hyped show after their big game.

    Their normal timeslot is Monday not Sunday so they are dealing with the football game on purpose. I wonder why?

    Get viewers, plain and simple.

    If CBS had the Superbowl this year, they'd put Hawaii 5-0 on after, but they don't, so they're putting in on after the 2nd biggest game of the year.

    Oh, so the non-sports fans or non-football fans have to monitor these games to be sure to get Hawaii 5-0? Oh, crap!!! I just checked my To do list and Hawaii 5-0 is on at 7 pm in the Los Angeles TV area. Right after the game!!!! I padded it by an hour.
    Everyone knows that games can run over and they usually want to have at least a half hour to discuss it afterwards. Since the winner goes to the Superbowl, I suspect they will not cut the post-game show.
    (I have no dog in this fight because there is not a single team west of the Rockies to root for)

    I just thought about this... With the new Overtime RULES in the NFL it might be necessary to pad for more than 1 hour.

    I would say pad it by more just in case. The playoff games tend to run over even more with longer commercial breaks and there is always the possibility of overtime. It sounds like they are putting this on right after the game to try and pull in new viewers.

    Or honk off the loyal viewers by putting it after a game that many won't even know is on TV.

    Was the game actually over early? I sat down to watch Hawaii 5-0 yesterday and had only recorded the last 12 minutes of the episode. The show must have started 48 minutes early. I would expect a late start but not early.

    I am in the Pacific Time zone and Hawaii 5.0 ended at about 8:13 or so. Since the show was shown right after the game, I cannot see how that could happen in any time zone. Are you in the Central time zone, sometimes their TV scheduling is weird? Oh, I just noticed that you live in Texas. They do weird things with the Central Time Zone. Evidently the show is shown on Hulu or somewhere else with full episodes.

    Actually, El Paso Texas is in the Mountain Time Zone. I had it to start on Sunday at 8:59 PM, so if it ended at 8:13 for you that would have been 9:13 for me, which is what happened. Maybe the guide should have shown that it was comming on at 8:00 PM for us.

    Mountain time is never mentioned on any advertisment for a show. I bet Tribune was off also. I first noticed it was on at 7 pm local time when I was looking at my todo list.
