CBS has one late game today.......Tennessee at Denver. It starts at 4:05pm eastern. At normally 3 hours a game, time will be tight for 60 Minutes to start in the viewing area. Good news is that Denver should win easily. The viewing area includes the following..........

Both Dakotas, western Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Detroit/eastern Michigan, Houston, Philly, Baltimore and all of Tennessee. Also Atlanta, Birmingham, Huntsville, northern Mississippi, small portion of eastern Ark (Memphis area) and southern Kentucky.

I sure hope that Manning makes quick work of the Titans so everyone can watch TAR at the same time.

I was thinking about Denver and how it was West Coast only that would be affected.  Forgot about Tennessee completely, so that has to suck.  But hopefully they'll be able to make the game end before 7.  Next year, I think CBS will get the double-header on 12/07/14 so that'll delay everyone, but what makes the double-header a plus is that no one is ahead of the other (in the US, at least).

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

Why do you think that? They do not alternate, btw. CBS and FOX work out between them who has double header every week. They do it so it equals out by the end of the season. FOX likes to have single games early in the football season, because they have MLBaseball playoffs. CBS likes double headers early and late in season, so it doesn't mess up too much with their prime time schedule.

But I will concede that guessing a year in advance only gets you a 50/50 chance at being right.

Mountain and Pacific are never affected by football run overs, only eastern and central time zones. So it is pointless to even name cities in Mountain or Pacific that have the late game. I only point out the cities in central and eastern when I post cities likely to be delayed.

Late games televised in Mountain Time zone start at either 2:05 or 2:25......so they are over before 60 Minutes start. Pacific Time zone late games start at 1:05 or 1:25 and are not even close to delaying 60 Minutes.

During TARs 12 week run, it is usually FOX with 7 double headers and CBS with 5.

When I said Denver was affected, what I meant was that their programming would be pushed back, but not TAR.  The announcers always mention that during the East Coast promo.  That's my fault since I wasn't clear on that.

Yeah, I did say that I think CBS will get the double-header next year.  Totally a guess.  I'm aware how the NFL scheduling works in general and that the double-headers don't alternate between FOX and CBS.  Next year does start a new TV contract, where a game can be flexed to a different network.  But that is for another day, just a random guess; my hope is that TAR can always start at the same time for everyone for a finale (especially the finale)

As a general rule, locations in the Mountain Time Zone do get the west coast feed, but not always.
There are some locations that are two hours behind the east coast feed for programming and are a hour ahead of the west coast feed, and some locations are so close to the dividing line between the central and mountain time zone areas, they follow central time and thus, may choose between the east coast feed or the 2 hour behind mountain time feed. (This has been apparent to me from voting patterns tracked on Dial Idol for AI voting during that season.) It is complicated. But those of us who are trying to give a heads up about where there may be delays try to be cautious and give y'all a heads up about the possibility so you can plan accordingly.

If I still lived in Philly, it would affect me.  Fortunately for me, I'm now living in Raleigh, NC, which is not affected!

Well Tenn/Den is running pretty late.....sorry for all those of you that are stuck with that game......the game is not even very

Why do all the tweets from CBS ALWAYS say for eastern and central time zones? Because CBS know that mountain and pacific are never affected. I have friends in Denver and they have NEVER been delayed by football overruns.

Well there was a 26 minute overrun in all those cities that had the late game.
