Do not forget to pad your timers because the 4 o clock foot ball game always runs late. Missed parts of many shows because of that last year.....

Way back when, I had to add time on the recordings of The Unit on CBS, looks like The Good Wife is going to need added recording time as well!

Wow. I only add an hour. Maybe I should bump it. Not a big deal as we watch it almost as soon as it airs. But last year I had padded Undercover Boss instead of TAR, but many of them didn't get watched in a timely manner, so I had 2 hours of recordings taking up a 1 hour show and only every other one was even needed padding.

It is a special kind of pain when you have things on multiple channels.

I like the FOX Animation Domination and now have the Good Wife on CBS. I was considering trying Pan Am, but also watch Sunday Night Football... so it is impossible to set a regular timer for all the shows... so I kind of have to monitor things Sunday evening.

I can set a timer for the CBS show on days they don't have a late game... same for FOX on days they don't have a late game... but every once in a while both have a late game.

Pan Am is probably going to lose here because I don't have enough timers and tuners available.
