NFL / CBS

it's almost 7:00 and STILL NO 60 MINUTES! Start your games at like 11:00 and don't make them take so damn long.

60 minutes never starts at the scheduled 7:00 time during football season. I agree it is annoying, but that is nothing new.

Seems fitting since 60 Minutes has become the de facto home of cheater and liar athletes pimping an upcoming book.

You posted a 748 complaining about 60 minutes not being on.

They let you stay up that late in the nursing home?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh man.. that was great!

Seriously, though... I'm 34 years old and as far back as I can remember regular programming has been preempted by the NFL. This wroks out great for me as a football fan, but even if you're not, this is *still* nothing new.

I liked the Romo interview. Actually got pretty sad at points. Then there were others like when he was happy he broke that guy's face.

Why doesn't CBS just give up the ghost and run 60 Minutes at 8 during the football season?

If I actually watched anything on their Sunday night lineup, this would annoy the crap out of me. Fox handles the situation much better if you ask me.

It was a little weird seeing Romo going Dick Vermeil. OTOH, that was nearly a perfect hit on Collins; just had his helmet a touch high.

That's an improvement over their old days of pimping phony health and safety scares such as Alar on apples, Audi accelerating brake pedals and Mercury amalgam dental fillings.

I thought this was gonna be about the broadcast quality. I was watching a bit of the Patriots game when my head started to hurt. Not only was the game not in HD, it appeared to be out of focus. As if I was watching the thing wearing glasses with an old prescription or something.

It's CBS. It was probably pre-blurred to assist the legally blind 60 Minutes demographic.

It might of just been the affiliate. I was watching a bit of that game and it was certainly HD for me.

Yeah, I'm not trying to be sensitive here, but is the thread title really necessary?

I was sitting there fuming just like you last night. And to those who think only geriatrics are interested in the show, I'm 30. I couldn't give a rat's flying fuck about football, and it drives me insane when quality programs are pre-empted by sports.
They should allot enough time in the schedule to complete the games, and if there's half an hour to fill, just show highlights, play commentary, or air some other filler.

Yet you were waiting to watch a show whose biggest advertised story last night was about a retired football player?!

Can you give a "rat's flying fuck"? C'mon, you're 30, show at least a little hipness.

Try..."'S'mofo butter layin' me to da' BONE! Jackin' me up... tight me!"
