    According to "the futon critic" site...

    8:20 PM - PRISON BREAK (FOX)
    · 1st season finale - special time (PB-122)
    and
    9:20 PM - 24 (FOX)
    · new episode - special time (TWF-522)

    because of...

    8:00 PM - FOX NEWS SPECIAL: PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS (FOX)
    · special presentation (SP-0639)

    I think the best thing to do is set up a manual recording for FOX 8PM-11PM (or pad 24 significantly.) I'm not taking any chances on the prez's speech ending on time.

    I kept Prisonbreak the same (8:20 to 9:20) but I padded 24 by an hour and a half. That's a bit much but I know with that, I definitly won't miss anything.

    No amount of padding is a bit much for 24 :)... Three hours myself.

    I forgot about the presidential speech. I didn't pad 24 and I dont believe that the president will just talk for half hour. More like an hour.

    blah blah blah i'm the president and let me screw up your TV night.

    When I checked my ToDo list, the DTivo had Prison Break and 24 starting 20 minutes late. I also have Fox 4 News on the same channel SPd, so even if the President talks longer than planned, I'm covered.

    What's going on with the schedules? Fox shows 20 min for the Prez, NBC shows 25 mins, CBS and ABC have nothing for the Prez.

    The biggest problem isn't that the Prez goes longer than 20-25 mins, but that there will be an hour of commentary by the spin meisters after it. And will the Democrats want equal time?

    Looks like I'll be spending a bunch of time babysitting the TiVos tonight. :D

    You all need to pack up and move west.

    Mountain and Pacific will be just fine. :D
    (unless the guide data gets screwed up by someone who doesn't realize that we start prime an hour later,
    and Pacific 2 hours after that)

    Yup, my To Do List has the correct times. I pre and post padded Prison Break by 5 minutes and will pad 24 by 30 minutes just to be safe. No conflicts for since it appears there's not an episode of Medium this week.

    Make sure your post padding of prison break by 5 min doesn't mess up 24, not that it really shouldn't

    I've got a DirecTivo so it'll use the other tuner to record 24.

    Next Monday is tricker with the season finales of 24 and Alias plus Medium. But it says it can do it! :) :up:

    You can pad Prison Break a full hour, 24 is on the same channel. :)

    Greetings everyone.
    Are all the statios padding as well? I've got the added delima of trying to ctch CSI Miami on top of Prisonbreak & 24. Why did he do this what was he thinking?

    Thanks!

    ABC is the only one I know of that is joining a rerun in progress, then airing the new shows at the normal times.

    CBS and FOX are both starting everything after the prez is done lip flapping.

    Haven't heard anything about NBC, so can't comment.

    As to how much they are slipping everything,
    it depends on how much "analyzing" the experts do after he is done talking.

    Glad I live in the Mountain Time Zone, everything should be nice and normal.
    And I'm at work, so I can't babysit the TiVo's.

    Wow. I'm on the West Coast, and the President was finished talking at 5:30 or so. (I was at a Little League game, so I'm not sure.)

    I didn't think I needed to do anything as it wouldn't affect us - but it did. I missed the first 20 minutes of 24.

    That sucks, big time. :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:
