    This is perhaps the most irritating time-type decision any idiot has ever made at a network. Early? EARLY? WhyTF would you start a show EARLY?

    I now pad Madam Secretary by 10 minutes early in addition to one hour late.

    Yeah, on election night, our local station that shows Jeopardy actually DID plan to air Jeopardy late night.. but it hadn't been in the guide data.. They even ran a crawl in the 10pm election results AND IIRC mentioned it in voiceover.. (after I had already sent them a complaint/question on their web site.)

    BUT THEY SAID IT WOULD AIR AT 1:35.. It really started at 1:30. Not the end of the world, but annoying. (Since I paranoidly pad in this case, I did pre-pad by a few minutes, but not enough -- since I too am one of the few who thinks starting a show EARLY is pretty much unheard of.. MTV seems to do it, and the I guess cancelled GameTrailers.tv started early at least once or twice, but usually started close to 5 minutes over its allotted start time... every week.. without any live programming reason..)

    That happens here all the time too and for some reason I am like Charlie Brown with Lucy's football. Every time something is re-scheduled late night, it's always seems to be at the weirdly timed 1:37, so I just go with it, and then later when I go to watch the recording, it's even worse... it usually started at 1:00. I need to stop thinking, "maybe this is the time that they will actually start when they say they will..." :eek:

    Beats joining it "in progress".

    The night they decided to have local programming start at its "normal" time, it affected all of the "local" programming, including "The Pinkertons". Fortunately, my hour of padding on "CSI" picked it up.

    The local CBS affiliate (WGCL 46) is awful. They regularly come back from commercial breaks late and go to local news early.

    I've been pre and post padding almost everything by 1 or 2 minutes for a long time.

    Why wasn't it on last week? It finally aired here in NH last week after 2 failures.

    It finally aired last week here in the NYC market/NJ Shore. Perhaps it's a Philadelphia area issue this time that kept it off air around Atlantic City.

    CBS schedulers still suck though.

    My TiVo recorded three attempts of a recent episode. The first one was The Good Wife. The second was news...? The third one was good.
