Not sure if this belongs here or in the Recording Alerts...

Apparently CBS has a system set up to notify you if shows aren't going to start on time because of sports running over...

If they just did what Fox did....build in a post-game show that fills the space between the end of the games and the start of the primetime lineup, then they wouldn't need to go to these lengths.

Of course, that would involve actually moving 60 Minutes. Maybe they are afraid that would kill the ratings.
