Exclamation Survivor Finale/Reunion Probably Late!

The national game of the NHL on CBS (Dallas/KC) will run late, probably pushing 60 Minutes and the Survivor shows back! If you can, you may want to pat at least 30 minutes...

Looks like 60 minutes will start at ~7:40pm ET/6:40pm CT. This means Survivor will start at ~8:40pm ET/7:40 CT. Pad accordingly.

Correction: They are calling it an "abbreviated edition" of 60 Minutes. Survivor will likely start on-time or less than 20 minutes late.

That differs from what was said at 7:00 Eastern, when they said that it would be seen in its entirety. Probably were not expecting it to go quite that late. I would still pad just to be safe...

Thumbs down

I hate CBS. In the first place, the second football game was not on the guide, either on my Replays or Tivo. CBS should have cancelled 60 Minutes.

It's late alright, 8:16 and Rooney is babbling.

Ed just finished a piece on shark attacks - when did 60 Minutes turn into Dateline?

Looks like 24 minutes over.

When it's a doubleheader weekend, they join whatever game in progress at 7:00 (ET), and keep going until the last game is over, then start 60 Minutes at the same time nationally. Well, except on the West Coast I guess.

I saw that 60 Minutes started at 7:38 EST, so I cancelled my Survivor SP recordings and set up a manual 3 hour block starting at 8:35 (I wanted both shows in 1 block anyway) and it started during the commercials before they came back to Day 37, apparently the morning after last episode's tribal council. I assume that all I missed was the "previously on Survivor segment" which I usually skip anyway, especially the extended version they usually do on the finale. Still, I thought it was strange, and was worried for a moment that I had missed a lot more.

As for cancelling 60 Minutes, I agree, but don't think we're supposed to get into politics here.

The "previously on Survivor" segment recapped the entire season, not just the last episode. It lasted a good ten minutes, IIRC. Then there were plenty of commercials after that, of course. Definately skip-worthy stuff.
