    Here on the West Coast, the timing is for 8:30-10:00p but the usual start time is a minute before the half hour, 11:29p (when broadcasted at its original time)

    I think it's due to the preceding show, which is from 8:00-8:30 [Will & Grace '17] and is scheduled for the full :30

    I didn't get to early start for a minute, and although it was a cold open, let this be a head's up to start recording a minute earlier until the programming guide reflects the correct time.

    thx. I haven't watched yet, but notice mine also started @ 8:30. Wish they could get it together already w/this ridiculous Rovi program.

    Sometime I wonder what it must be like to work at TiVo now. I know they do things since the boilerplate for daytime MSNBC changed last week. But now TDS is showing on my To Do List at 7am. If I check zap2it, I see late night has changed the Seasons for some shows, yet the TiVo guide has not. It's so random. I wonder if there is chaos or just incompetence. I gave up sending in guide error forms since it seems even the form can cause a problem. Well, enough rant for today.

    Good rant, Joe, and right on. It's gone so far beyond ridiculous at this point. There might have been probs with Tribune Media, but it was a fraction of a percent of what Rovi has dealt. :( We pay for this service and we're getting crap.

    The very end seemed clipped too in the orig airing, but I recorded the 11:30 just to make sure I had the very beginning & end, and he did say goodbye.. Nobody did a full rundown, but some of the skits LATER were funny.. and the guy who designed the font they made fun of loved that skit.

    Start time for this week's new episode (Gal Gadot/San Smith) has a correct time of 8:29p here on the West Coast, but ends at 10:00p. I've added a minute both before and after the scheduled time and will report back on how accurate it is.

    I've usually added 5 mints of padding at the end. The show often goes over by a minute or two.
