Now, it seems as though we have a new challenge. It started with Season 10 and it has only been getting worse. Networks air shows in time slots. Those are the parameters for when it will be on the television - and those are the default parameters for when my DVR will record them. Yes, I can change it to read more or less but if I have it set to "when program is scheduled to start/end", wouldn't you believe that it will record all of the show? Yeah, me too but guess what - it doesn't when the show doesn't notify the rest of the world and simply runs over.
American Idol is horrible at running past their scheduled time. I'm not sure how it is allowed but it seems to be impossible for them to stick to the 60 minute time frame. It's getting to be 63 or 65 minutes which means that I am missing the conclusions to the show... and we all know that they keep the best stuff for the last five minutes. Do you see my predicament?
Yes, I have adjusted my DVR now to run 5 minutes past since I am not recording anything else afterwards on those days but what if I was - you can only record two things at one time. American Idol, consider this me asking nicely that you please, please, pretty please stay within your scheduled air time... because just once this season I'd like to actually see the ending of your show.
