View Full Version : My rant for today. Why does CBS even bother publishing a schedule?

It's gotten to the point I don't even want to try to watch anything on CBS anymore. They have a schedule but it's apparently not based on anything form of reality. I know on the weekends it's mandatory to pad the timer by an hour if I want to record something because of sports events that always run long. Even an hour is sometimes not enough.

What was going on Monday night, to cause Hawaii Five-O to start 40 minutes late? Of course I forgot to pad the timer.

I wish they would more realistically schedule the sports, give it, oh, another hour. On the rare occasion something ends a bit early, just let them do the post-game commentary a few more minutes, or pad it with previews of upcoming shows, or throw in a clip from 60 Minutes or something. At least that way stuff could start on time.

but Monday was unique because of all the rain they had in NY which kept delaying the tennis games.
Normally Sunday was the mens final

Yeah, I'm used to them never being on time on Sunday. Monday was a surprise.

Well yeah, that three hour difference compensated for it.
