Tuned into the Daily Show tonight and I was fortunate to have had the tuner tuned to that channel as the show started approximately 23 minutes early tonight. I was able to rewind the buffer and watch both it and the Colbert Report in their entirety, but I have never seen a network air programs so out of their standard time slots. What's up with that?

I just looked at my recording of The Daily Show and it starts at 10:00 p.m. (Central) at the interview with Edie Falco . . . about 23 minutes late. I just assumed this was a network issue that others would be seeing as well. I have no idea how it could be unique to me. Very curious.

Did you have rain around the time of the airing of the program? Did you verify that a full hour was recorded?

It's possible that you didn't have a signal until 10:23, and that you recorded only 37 minutes of the program.

No problem with the rain. That's why I was able to rewind my live buffer and watch both Stewart and Colbert. I am genuinely puzzled.

My 30 minute recording was The Daily show ... with a second 30 minute recording for Colbert. Just like every other night. I'm not sure what you were seeing.

Yep, both shows recorded fine for me as well

I decided to take a closer look at the recordings I made of both Stewart and Colbert Thursday night and discovered another odd feature. They both show them starting on time at 10:00 and 10:30 Central. And they both show them as 31 minute recordings (I pad each by a minute at the end) and when you begin them, you see 31 minute progress bars. But both shows begin approximately 23 minutes into the show as if they both started 23 minutes late. And this is what the live buffer showed when I originally viewed them. I had to rewind 23 minutes prior to 10:00 to start viewing the Daily Show. And here's the new odd thing I just discovered about both recordings. Eight minutes into each, the recording stops and you get the option to save or delete them just at the point where the recording would usually stop (a minute into the Colbert Report for the Stewart recording and a minute into Tosh.O for Colbert).

Curiouser and curiouser.
