Since when?  It's not like they cut the show off...they air the shows
in their entirety...they just do it anywhere from 1/2 hour to as much
as an hour or more late.  I've never seen them re-air a show because
of that.  Also remember that this tends to affect only people in the
eastern time zone (unless the game goes more than an hour over)...but
again, they're the only station that does this.  During the NFL season
a Sunday night when the primetime schedule *doesn't* get screwed up is
a rarity.
