But I don't want to have to micro-manage my schedule, babysitting
recordings when sporting events are running over so that I can fix up
the start/end times of the rest of the evening.  I don't even know when
these sporting events are on.

Not around here they don't.  The whole evening's schedule for that
station is upset.

Indeed, that would be better.

How about, if football (or anything else that is supposedly
hand-over-fist lucrative) runs over, CBS forfeits commercials for the
rest of the night until their schedule is caught up?  That's only fair.
 If these events are so lucrative, surely they made more money running
commercials in that overrun time than the commercials they will forfeit.
 I won't hold my breath.
