Long time Aussie TiVo user in OZ and it really depends on the show.

I could name the shows that will run overtime to the clockwork. I 
normally pad these shows by themself, rather than run a one pad fits all.

ie '* Idol' shows always run overtime!! (not that I watch them, I just 
see them on the start of the next show ;)

Yet shows like the 6pm Simpsons run on clockwork!
