Why is it that CBS skips a show because of an overrun?

    it only takes one game to make a point. The other late game was Atlanta @ San Fran which was very competitive and ended up 29-22 Atlanta (Atlanta scored with :02 left and then the kickoff San Fran fumbled and Atlanta scored again). Meanwhile it was 44-21 and not even close.

    The point I was making was more the fact that danderson400, 600, 300 (he has multiple user names at different sites) drudged up a 2 year old post to make a statement of "FOX doesn't always pull the "due to NFL rules" BS line and dumps us to the late game" and then cited an example of last year

    The only thing we both agreed on is "I'm still mad at them for not dumping Rams/Cowboys for Falcons-49ers last year." ;)

    I'm looking at my clock, and the Chargers-Bengals game wont be over before 7. So 60 Minutes will be delayed until that game finishes.

    Only in the cities that aired that game. It wasn't a CBS doubleheader day.

    Urgent Pad Recording Alerts (EAST)

    Not having the "we must cut away" rule for bonus coverage helped Fox last week...likely the game of the year so far(Atlanta-Dallas).....aired in every market that didn't have the late game(Redskins-Cardinals)....

    I think the plan is to move them to MNF. Because, you know, there's no way the NFL gives up any money.

    It will be interesting to see how CBS handles The Masters if it runs late into the NFL.

    The Masters should be over by 2:30 ET. It would have to be a long playoff not to be done by 4:00. If it happens, I’ll bet they stick with golf.

    I feel like CBS will get rid of the green jacket ceremony this year, in order to get to NFL coverage sooner, in the event of a rain delay.

    Did i hear this right...CBS is going to switch from the Masters to the Bills/Cardinals game even if the golf isn't done at 4pm, and the golf is going to switch to ABC?

    I haven't heard anything about that... but... today, there was a three hour delay due to weather. If something similar happens Sunday morning, the Masters could easily get pushed out enough to overlap the NFL game by quite a bit. No idea what CBS would do.

    From the cbs master website
    Maybe tell people to see it on the web? Maybe have it free on Masters.com? Don't know.

    Would it be a reach to think the NFL might delay kickoff by 15 to 30 minutes if golf was running a little over and the outcome wasn't certain.

    NFL likes to cooperate with their TV partners

    CBS got lucky that the Masters ended on time.

    Of course the Bills/Cardinals game topped that.

    This isn't quite "skipping a show," but I didn't learn this until today:
    If it's a Fox doubleheader day and CBS has multiple games starting at 4:05 ("usually," it's not more than two, but yesterday was a special case because of The Masters), when a game on CBS ends, the stations showing that game cannot switch to another game unless all of the games on Fox have already ended, which is almost impossible as they started 20 minutes later. The same goes for Fox 4:05 games on a CBS doubleheader day.

    Also, apparently (I am not entirely sure about this one), CBS only has the ability to air three separate feeds to the Eastern/Central time zones; its "on time" one, and two "delayed by football" ones.

    Why was Houston @ Cleveland a FOX game?

    because it was an early game and CBS didnt have any early games

    Also its called cross flexing. Been done many times since 2016. Nothing new. This past week had 3 of them all on FOX. Last week we had 2. Again its to balance the workload for both networks.

    I'm still getting used to the idea of a AFC game on FOX. If Fox has three great NFC games, and CBS has a less attractive slate of AFC games, that’s not good for CBS. But it’s not good for the league, either, because at least one of those three Fox games is going to be broadcast to only a small slice of the country.
