POST GENERAL DISCUSSION AND FEEDBACK TO THE FOLLOWING THREAD:

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=7184224#post7184224

The purpose of this single forum thread is to allow TCF users in the Eastern Standard Time zone to receive an instant email notification when something scheduled later in the day is running late due to sports or other television events. If successful, a separate thread can be created for other time zones.

You can subscribe to a forum and at most get daily updates of new threads. This is too little, too late when it comes to network schedules changing due to that day's earlier programming. You can subscribe to a single thread...this one...and get an instant email notification when a post is made. You will need to visit this website to receive any further instant emails, so be sure to click on the link.

Please post for entire network changes, not just a single show. For example, when the earlier game/event ends and the lineup for the remainder of the day is determined, a post could state: "CBS prime time lineup pushed back 54 minutes for Sunday 3/29." Details for individual program times could be included.

PLEASE DO NOT POST FOR LATE RUNNING SPORTING EVENTS. You should automatically pad your sports recordings anyways. Most of us that plan on time-shifting a sporting event don't want to know anything about it (overtime/extra innings) before we watch it.

This should come in handy if the thread is used properly. Remember, posting general discussion and feedback directly to this thread will defeat its capabilities. I will revise this post with any suggested changes to the "posting rules".

I hope this is the right use for this - if not, please delete.

It looks like programming on ESPN is delayed 20 minutes due to overrun caused by the Brett Favre press conference.

I don't know how ESPN usually makes up for these things, but at a minimum it appears the World Series of Poker coverage began 20 minutes late and was not joined in progress. As such, the second hour likely will run 20 minutes late as well.

I'm in the Central Time zone, but I believe this affects at least the Eastern & Central zones (sorry, can't speak for the left coast ;)).

Sunday Night CBS Line Up Alert!!!

This information will be stated from the Central Time Zone, so apply as needed in your area.

Cold Case will NOT air tonight. It will air next Sunday, and though I assume that will be the episode originally scheduled for tonight, I am not certain about that.

60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, and Three Rivers will air tonight, pushed back as necessary due to the NY Jets/Buffalo Bills football game.

As of 7:03 Central Time, that game is still in progress in overtime with 3:45 left on the game clock.

Reschedule and pad as necessary!!! A one-hour pad will miss the end of the program. A one and a half hour pad would catch the end of the program, but again, Cold Case won't air.

ETA - It looks like 60 Minutes began around 7:14/7:15 (Central Time). Add additional padding or, as I am doing, set a manual recording to eliminate excessive wasted space.

Even the Mountain Time Zone needs padding today, a real rarity.

15+ minutes should do it.

Cold Case will be a rerun.

West Coast was lucky, 60 minutes was at the correct time.
Not luck, design.

There would have to be an absolutely unprecedented delay in a football game for "60 Minutes" to be delayed on the West Coast -- we're talking something along the lines of a power failure caused by elephants stampeding across the field due to a UFO landing in a stadium parking lot. (The game last night was just under 4 hours long. A West Coast "60 Minutes" delay would happen at 5 hours and 45 minutes.)

Maybe the game could be interrupted by "balloon boy." Actually some baseball games have gone on that long but I think a NFL game going on that long would probably kill some of the players.

Monday Night Football Delayed by at least 30mins.

Lightning delays Ravens-Jets kickoff

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It's raining on New York Jets owner Woody Johnson's parade.

Because of lightning in the area, the start of the Baltimore Ravens at Jets "Monday Night Football" game has been pushed back at least 30 minutes, the Jets announced in the press box.

The field and the stands at New Meadowlands Stadium have been cleared out -- no fans in the seats, no players on the field. There's a steady drizzle, but it's the lightning that is the reason for the delay.

Once the teams receive the go-ahead, the players still have to go through their usual pregame warm-ups.

Eastern and Central Time Zone CBS Sunday night

For what it's worth, CBS football coverage in the Minneapolis area at least went one hour and seven minutes long.

As such, even if you padded The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss and/or CSI Miami by an hour, you're still gonna miss the end of the recording.

I deleted the scheduled recordings and set up appropriate manual recordings to catch The Amazing Race and CSI Miami without then having to record two-plus hours to get the entire show - never hurts to save drive space!

First time in a long time, this even affects the Mountain Time Zone.

Everything pushed back 7-8 Minutes.

CSI Miami is no longer a new episode, it is a rerun in Mountain and Pacific.
CSI Miami will not air in the East or Central.
