watch for the red light?
Loved that. I grew up in NEPA, so I am very aware of the backyard weather. The train is relatively new. Couldn't help but wonder if Wilkes-Barre feels slighted since the station is shared and the studio is between the two towns.
red light? Not sure I get what you're saying
I think there's just been a run of bad luck lately with extra-length premieres and finalés earlier in the evening. Once the schedule settles in, it should be more consistently 10:00 or so.
with tivo, i'm lucky if i know what time any show starts, so if i'm doing something else the night i want to watch a show live, i catch myself looking at the front of my tivo to count the red lights.
Ahhh, OK. I no longer have a TiVo DVR, so I don't see red lights This is a show I frequently would watch live, at least sometimes.
The odd times have mostly been because of Game of Thrones. They've had odd length episodes all season. It's over now though, so it should be more consistent.
I wouldn't count on that. The most recent episode of Last Week Tonight was at 11:45 (!) even though there was no GoT.
That was the premiere of The Deuce.
Exactly, which was about 85 minutes long. So once that show moves to normal-length episodes, LWT should get back to its normal slot.
Hey, it's the era of DVR and on demand. Get with the times, man! No need for appointment viewing.
... Except bedtime.
I have never watched Last Week Tonight as it aired.
Exactly! Who the heck can stay up that long when Monday morning is coming up?! It's the first thing I watch when I start watching TV on Monday, though!
I usually go to bed at 11:30 every night, so on Sunday night, I watch this and then go to bed (or sometimes watch in bed) The Tonight Show has been on HOW many years and gets an audience. Someone is staying up to watch.
Which, of course is what i do when they show the airings late. That said, I enjoy the show and want to watch as soon as possible. As there's no real advantage to watching this show at a different time (i.e. no commercials to FF through), why not watch it live when I can?
I'm usually in bed by 10 (I wake up around 4 or 5 regardless of when I go to bed), but on Sunday night I'll stay up for John Oliver...unless it's more than a few minutes late.
I try not to watch shows as they air, just out of principle.
The only show I watch as it airs is Game of Thrones.
The late night talk shows amaze me. I can't believe so many people are able to stay up that late! I've only ever seen them the next day.
I can't believe so many people (including Samantha Bee) call her show a late-night show (it airs during prime time).
John Oliver I suppose technically is late-night, but it's (usually) the same time as the evening news so I don't put it in the same category as the real late-night shows.
I watch TDS, John Oliver, Samantha, Colbert the next morning, right after the first 15 minutes of the 5 am news.
