starting at 7:59 - ending at 9:03(anti-tivo time)...will this year be different?

I'm loading in all the new shows I want to check out into my tivos and I'm beginning to wonder - will the networks screw around with time scheduling again like they did last year? last year was a bit of a pain when you wanted to watch a large variety of shows on a certain day and couldn't really get everything you wanted due to the fact that some of them started early/ended late and caused conflicts on tivos/dvrs for people that have them. do you think this year will be better/worse when it comes to this?

I could swear that I read an article a few months ago saying that NBC at least was abandoning their minute early/minute late ways. Let me see if I can find it.

Edit: Found it. NBC returning TV shows to regular start/end times

Let's see if it holds true. IIRC, NBC was the biggest offender last season.

Good to hear. That crap was a killer on shows that overlapped. Just got a dual tuner HD DVR box from the cable company over the weekend though, so I think I could work around it this year.

Lost was a big offender of this. At least I'll be Tivo'ing Invasion so it won't make a difference, but still.

What's worse is when you miss the second half of RockStar because King of Queens is scheduled. Fuck you CBS.

Do you think they do this to screw us up on changing channels??? It seems like a good idea from their standpoint. Bastards! It did make dvr'ing lost a pain in the a**.
