Grey's Anatomy is scheduled to run after the Superbowl on February 5th. It is highly unlikely that it will actually air at the time that will be listed in the schedule guide. So if you want to be sure not to miss it, you might want to pad at least an hour after the scheduled time.

IS there any chance you can repost this same post a couple days before the thing? I can't get to that data yet this far out. If you can't, don't sweat it. I'll try and make a note somewhere myself. My wife loves that show. Thanks for the notice.

If I don't then I am sure someone will. With the good sized number of people in the 24 thread complaining that they missed the last 10 minutes of that show because of the football overrun, I wanted to get the word out early that the same thing is going to happen to GA after the Superbowl.

Pad enough to go to midnight EST. They won't start the show after 11:00p, the ratings won't count. ABC made that mistake with Alias a few years ago.

Weird. I never even thought of the Super Bowl being in the evening. :) I never watch it so I never sat around and wondered why the sky was dark. <glyph for really silly grin>

How bizarre... the East & West coast feeds of this are at the same time (10:15 PM EST and 7:15 PST). I guess they wanted to get the audience immediately after the game.

I wish they had news right after the game. Local news is a great pad because it can be truncated without problem.

I'm going to have to watch for this because I watch it live in HD (my tivo doesnt do HD) AND to make sure the tivo also gets its copy. geesh, so much work just because of some silly american sporting event.

I have set a 3 hour pad, just in case they do what they did with Alias. IIRC, Alias didn't start until something like 12:15a.m.

And by the way, I cannot let this go without reminiscing (sp?) a little about that specific post-Superbowl Alias episode.....

Black or Red?






Maybe the episode of Grey's will have Izzy in lingerie?

Here's a tip for newbies.

Let's say you are watching the Super Bowl live but you are only planning to record Grey's Anatomy. You see that the game is running over. Here's what you can do.

Timeslot starts at HH:15 but let's say the game actually runs to HH:30. If GA's has not started already, and you are extremely tight on space, stop the recorder before GA starts and dump the buffer by quickly changing channels during a commercial break. Then start recording again (press the record button) before GA begins.

Or, if you are watching the game behind live and GA has already started, proceed to the next step:

Find out how long the game ran (let's say 15 minutes over) and go into the Now Playing List. Choose "Change Recording Options". As long as your TiVo is still recording GA, you can pad an extra 15 minutes (or more) to make sure that the entire show is in one unbroken recording.

ABC won't make the same mistake twice. Alias started just after 11:00p EST so the ratings didn't count for the primetime ratings for the week. If they can't start it before 11:00p it won't air. In other words just pad one hour.

Just to be safe, I did the 3-hour pad on my DTivo. GA is just about my favorite show right now, and my wife recently got hooked on it, so it's in my household's best interests to get it right. :)

I understand what your saying about the ratings book, but I cannot see ABC advertising the show "after the Super Bowl" so much so far, and during the game (since they won't know if the game is running over until it does) and then not airing it.

The Super Bowl is one of the highest rated events of the year, so if the game runs over, then it's getting the ratings for the 10-11 hour...thus would pull in higher ratings than Grey's Anatomy, so what would ABC really be losing?

If you are recording the Superbowl and Grey's anatomy on a single tuner system, heads up!

GA was originally set to record at 9:15pm (Central). The Superbowl is listed as 3:45 hours duration, so naturally I padded the Superbowl by 1/2hr without affecting the GA recording.

Looking at the ToDo list GA was not set to record. In checking they have moved the start time to 9pm which of course conflicted with the 1/2 pad on the Superbowl thereby cancelling the GA recording.

Needed to change the pad to 15 mins in order to catch GA.

Check your ToDo lists.

My Tivo guide has a postgame show listed between the actual Super Bowl and Grey's Anatomy. Since they are all on the same channel and we are on the east coast, I just set to record all three and padded GA by two hours. I figured that would cover all my bases.

WTAE in Pittsburgh was running their ads for Grey's Anatomy with the note to record from midnight to 4am. As of this moment, they're running a crawl that the show will run in it's entireity starting @ midnight.
