    In the Central time zone (Houston), it started at 8:14, ended an hour later. So it started 14 minutes late. (I padded an hour.)

    OK, normally our shows here in El Paso are tape delayed one hour from the Eastern/Central feed. So, if it started at 8:13 in Houston and also here as well as 7:13 in California this must have been the case. So, obviously the game was not over early but the guide was wrong. No bid deal, I will catch it on the re-run.

    So did I miss a new episode or a repeat? DVR did not record 5-O this week.

    It was a new episode, but it was broadcast on Sunday after a football game, instead of Monday.

    I agree. Now it is a bunch of repeats.

    They should have shown it in its normal time slot as well so that those of us already watching didn't miss it. I'll check my Comcast DVR on-demand, perhaps I can find it there. And no, I don't want to watch it via the internet.

    I don't know why they just didn't repeat it on the next Monday. There are those who view the game and those who don't. If they thought they would get more football fans to watch the show, that is weird. I suspect those who are interested have already checked out the show earlier. Usually NEW programs are shown after important games.
    I haven't checked out what is showing after the Superbowl.

    This may shed some light on why the networks put shows on after big games like the AFC title game and the Super Bowl. The AFC game was #1 for the week with 54.9 million viewers. That is slightly more than double what #2 American Idol drew at 26.2 million.

    The Hawaii Five-0 ep that aired after the game was #5 with 19.3 million. That is about 6 million more than the premiere of the show and about 8 million more than the show has averaged thus far. The rerun that ran the next night came in at 17, up from 36 the previous week. This is a rare occasion where TV execs may know what they're doing by moving the show for the night.

    I'm always baffled when people DON'T understand what a good idea it is to put shows on after playoff football games.

    Maybe those folks don't watch NFL games. :) and are unaware of their existance until it affects the TV schedule. (I live in the west so I am rarely affected except when Hawaii 5.0 is on the wrong day)
