    Other timezones need their own thread.

    Carping about what's posted in this thread needs its own thread also.

    there's no such thing as separate eastern and central time zone broadcasts by the networks, so your suggestion makes little sense.

    • Football games are live in all time zones.
    • Sunday evening programming is by time zone - 60 Minutes is on at 7 PM in many (probably most) markets across the country.
    • As a result, the east coast is most often affected by football overruns, and on the west coast it's almost unheard of.
    • The name of this thread is Urgent Pad Recording Alerts (EAST).
    If overruns happen as often where you live as they do where I live, it might be useful for someone (you?) to start a thread titled Urgent Pad Recording Alerts (CENTRAL) but this isn't it. Then you can follow that thread and you won't have to read about my delays and I won't have to read about yours.

    But some people really don't like when discussions about this thread clutter up this thread so I won't respond further about this in this thread.

    Eastern and Central are the same thing...i.e., what shows at 8:00 Eastern shows at 7:00 Central, which is the same time.

    You guys are fighting over something stupid. Some markets, but not all, ran late because the particular games listed in the CBS tweet several posts up ran long. So it was not all East, or all Central, but only those markets.

    But the bottom line is people use this thread to help with those delays. If it doesn't pertain to you, just scroll by! You're not required to respond to everything you see on the internet. Stop fighting over it.

    Keep in mind that Minneapolis, Miami, Charlotte, Baltimore, and Jacksonville did not have a 1:00 Eastern game on Fox because the local teams in those cities had a 1:00 game on CBS. Presumably, Fox's football coverage in those cities started at 4:00 Eastern, rather than asking the Fox stations to air 15 or 20 minutes of local programs.

    CBS is running about 15 minutes late due to football. 60 Minutes was scheduled to begin at 6:30 Central (7:30 Eastern) and started at 6:43 instead. (DFW if markets matter.)

    If they had kept to their schedule only the SE would have been affected. CBS chose to mess up other markets. But it was an interesting OT ending.

    After my update today, I found that The Tonight Show has the wrong season and episode number. The OAD is ok, but the next three days are not in my To Do List.

    Even thought the scroll on the bottom said 8:40/7:40, they started at 8:36/7:36. It shouldn't matter to those of us recording, but if a live TV viewer planned on showing up at :40, they would miss the first 4 minutes.

    Really, CBS?

    Hmm, I didn't realize that was even possible. Wonder why the local affiliate (CBS Houston) would do that? Get to the news (and other local programming) asap?

    I'm going to retract this post (fake news!). I think some bad weather we had earlier in the day contributed to the DirecTV Genie being off on some internal timers. When I watched it on my TiVo (same CBS affiliate, different house), it started at the 10 minute mark.

    due to cbs sports overrun, central and eastern time zones are running late, but by slightly different amounts –

    chicago, charlotte, tampa, states of wi, mi, ks, mo, ne, & ia, and parts of ar, ok & tx, are 27 minutes late:


    nycity, nashville, hartford, state of tn, and parts of states vt, tn, ky, & ms, are 24 minutes late:

    my market isn’t listed, but i’m running 24 minutes late, so i’m padding by 30 minutes.

    Heads up the late FOX game went long (29 minutes to be exact) so if you're recording the Miss Universe pageant and you are in the following markets
    Minneapolis
    Cincy
    Nashville
    NYC
    Jacksonville
    Miami

    its running 29 minutes late
