Sure, you can create new overrides for each upcoming recording on that 
channel, and mark each override as extending late, but that is hardly an 
"option to handle this".  There is no mechanism to do that automatically 
for the next several shows on a station.  There was formerly an external 
script that would monitor various web pages to determine if sports 
events were still ongoing, and extend that specific recording, however 
it didn't do anything for further recordings on that channel, and I 
doubt it still works.
