The Good Wife is going to be angry.
CBS announced today that its Sunday night shows are going to get disrupted a little bit during the NFL season on weekends it hosts National Football League doubleheaders. To combat that, the network will push back the start time of those series so fans don't miss out.
Here's what CBS's Sunday programming will look like in Eastern and Central timezones on doubleheader days:
7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT: "60 Minutes"
8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT: "Big Brother 14" (through Sept. 23) and "The Amazing Race" (starting Sept. 30)
9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. CT: "The Good Wife"
10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT: "The Mentalist"
NFL doubleheader Sundays dates are: Sept. 16 and 23; Oct. 7 and 21; Nov. 4 and 18; and Dec. 2, 16 and 30.
Start times in Mountain and Pacific timezones will remain unchanged.
These changes should erase DVR woes. Previously CBS would start shows at odd times, for example "The Mentalist" would begin at 8:24 p.m. However, it was listed as starting at 8 p.m. in the scheduling grid, so to record the whole episode viewers would have to set their DVRs to record the following program.
Good news or does it not change anything for you?
