    The Mentalist was suppose to show Fire And Brimstone and the program info show Fire And Brimstone but they show a rerun instead. Bummer.

    That is disappointing. It is summed up in the headline of this article ‘The Mentalist’ season 6: New episode ‘Fire and Brimstone’ not airing tonight on CBS due to NFL which explains:

    From the first moment when they came to Rigsby's door, I kept saying to myself that this was a rerun. But I kept checking the info and it showed a new episode. My next thought was to come here to the TV Talk forum, and.... sure enough.... you guys were there for me!

    Which means that many recorders won't pick up this episode when it airs next week, since it's been flagged as having been recorded. Be sure to double check when the guides are updated.

    Don't worry there will be football next weekend also so DVR recording on Sunday will still be screwed up. CBS really does need to worry about the ratings the only thing worse for viewers would be changing the day of the week The Mentalist appears on.

    Next weekend isn't a CBS double header, so times should be normal. Only the Houston DMA might be affected.

    I don't know about that - in New Orleans, we're getting a CBS double header with Denver/San Diego as the late game.

    Actually, per http://506sports.com/nfl/ CBS has a doubleheader next week also.
    So, who knows when the next episode will air, because you don't see many of the late games ending as scheduled even with CBS's 30-minute offset scheduling.

    Well shoot, you're right. I assumed they were back to alternating weeks since the 2nd and 3rd weeks.

    They need to schedule other things when they runs double header. It's not like thy don't run tons if repeats in march so just runs couple now or even better other programming. Also they could reshow the program on Saturday or something and make sure it has slightly different guide data so it gets recorded! They are all now admiring DVR use age within 30 days is huge so play to it!!!

    I thought I had seen that one before.
    I have mine set up with 1 1/2 hr buffer at the end because of how many times in the past that CBS will push that show for a game.

    A possible solution would be to move "The Good Wife" to another day and schedule "preemptable" reruns of half hour comedies at 7 pm. which is what Fox does. It's really stupid to pretend the football problem doesn't exist.

    In the general scheme of things, another possible solution would be to allow the local affiliates to preempt "60 Minutes" but only if they shift it to Monday at 7 pm and run a nice scroll announcing the shift at the bottom of the screen every so often during the football game beginning at 6:45 pm.

    The issue, of course, is that CBS Sports and CBS News are different divisions of CBS and the poor slobs responsible for developing other programming which is the bread and butter of the network get pushed aside.

    My 722 DVR has it listed as "The Great Red Dragon" Episode 128. Maybe Dish has not received the updated guide info or maybe my DVR has old info. Either way it is set to record.....

    Problem is "The Great Red Dragon" was originally scheduled for November 10. The Zap-2-It Guide which is a TMS (Tribune Media Services) guide shows "Brimstone and Fire" so sooner or later the Dish guide will catch up. I'm going to double-check Friday and again Sunday.

    This is good to know. I don't really care that they ran a rerun; after all, the script order had probably not changed from the standard 22, and I watch the show on playback anyway (and am 10 eps behind).

    But it does have an effect. What this means is that we should delete the rerun (now that we know it is a rerun) and if we really want to get this ep, we should change our SLs to "both", just so when it comes around for real it is not considered a repeat, or won't record because we already have something sitting on the HDD under that title preventing the real first airing from recording.

    I'm guessing that since my alternate source had the new episode, I'll see nothing this coming weekend. I kinda wish I didn't see it *at the time I did* because..

    It ends in a cliffhanger that makes sure you want to be tuned in the following week
