The airing this Sunday 18-Jan-*09* follows football.
Werd, got it in my To Do. Love it. The Mentalist and Football.
I added an hour of padding, in case football goes to overtime. An hour may be excessive but it will be enough. Under no circumstances will CBS start the Mentalist after 10:59p.
Which could then create a 28-day rule problem. Stay on top of it......
What do you mean? I was going to pad, too.
If they end up not showing it because the game runs too long, then TiVo will think it aired, and when it's rescheduled TiVo won't record it.
I think that was in reference to lew's post that CBS wouldn't start the episode later than 10:59p.
If football ran more than an hour over (which is really unlikely), then CBS just wouldn't show The Mentalist at all that night. So when they do show it your TiVo will think it's a duplicate (28 day rule) and not record it.
But you only need to worry about that if for some reason The Mentalist doesn't air Sunday night.
My point was there isn't any point in padding more then an hour.
Thanks. I get it now.
Simple solution - move to California.
No reason to be smug. This could easily be a problem here too, since the playoff game starts 2 1/2 hours later the usual time, and there is no local programming between it and network broadcast schedule.
Well, I didn't pad, and I effectively missed it. They should've stuck with their original plan to show a rerun of The Unit ("Sacrifice"). Or else a rerun of The Mentalist, not a fresh episode.
CBS should rebroadcast The Mentalist's "Paint It Red" episode for other people who might've missed it.
I live in NY, but get the west coast stations, so I set it up to record from LA and padded by an hour just to be safe.
Burn in hell, CBS --- why did you start it 15 minutes EARLY in LA? You've done a bunch of dumb things with Sunday night football overruns, but this one takes the cake!
Ok Im confused what episode aired Sunday 1/18?
I'm a few eps behind and my tivo did not get the airing on 1/13 Red Rum according to tv.com
also according to tv.com Paint it Red will air on 1/20. So i was assuming the episode airing on 1/18 was Red Rum am I wrong?
My guide data had and recorded Red Rum at 8pm and Paint it Red at 9pm. When I checked the episodes one started 30 minutes late and after that they aired an episode of the unit. So I ended up with one full episode of thew Mentalist in a 2hour block I'm just not sure what one it was.
Only "Paint it Red" was shown on the east coast on 1/18. It starts out with a couple making out in an office building. TV.com is correct in that "Red Rum" originally aired on the 13th. That episode starts out on a shot of a crow.
Also, I'm seeing "Redwood" listed on the 20th, which is an episode from October 28.
Yep, California got screwed also. My guide data did not match anything on the screen and I forgot about the Mentalist. Not my favorite show, so no big deal.
Most people without a DVR wouldn't know to look for a Tuesday show on Sunday. Those with a DVR have a shot, but miss it because they can't schedule it accurately.
Soon the execs will be talking about the bad ratings for that episode and cancel the show.
Okay, surprise, surprise I only got half an episode. Anybody know where I can find the rest of it? CBS website won't work from Canada I'm sure.
People without a DVR are more likely to have watched the CBS promotions during the week.
