'Survivor' fans need plan for Sunday prime
Posted December 16, 2011
This Sunday is one of CBS Sports’ NFL doubleheader weekends, and so the Sunday night primetime schedule will undoubted be delayed.
CBS has created a complicated set of procedures to deal with football running over and the live finale and reunion of this season's “Survivor,” but here’s all you need to know.
If you are relying on a recording device such as a DVR to capture all of “60 Minutes” or “Survivor,” you need to modify the settings prior to Sunday to ensure that you record all of your shows.
Primetime on CBS Sunday could be more than hour late! We recommend setting your device to record an hour and a half (90 minutes) longer than normal.
So if you want to be sure to see the wining moment of “Survivor” and the “Survivor Reunion Show,” set your recorder to also record “WRAL 11:00PM News,” the “NC State Coach’s Show,” and “House,” or you can tack on an extra hour and a half to your record settings for the "Survivor Reunion Show."
This may take a bit of effort ahead of time, but you should get your shows.
