I am so mad at CBS…

I absolutely hate Sunday nites when the creeps at CBS schedule 60 Minutes (which I wait for all week) at 7:00 PM and I make plans for my evening around it … then they let Football run over it’s time and change the schedule by one hour at the last minute!

The trick, of course, is that they think I’ll stay with CBS all night... so I’d like to tell them that a.) I don’t like football and b.) I have no problem turning off CBS and watching other Networks or Cable stations. I do feel very unsatisfied when my 8:00 PM plans have to be put in a “choose or die” mode if I have to watch 60 Minutes out of sequence (tonite I chose to watch Once Upon A Mattress on the Ovation Channel… and I didn’t feel like breaking away from it. It’s one of my favorite musicals.)

I think they should program football earlier in the afternoon since they ho it will, as it always does, breach the 7:00 PM deadline. I am not the only person who thinks so…I’ve brought this up before over coffee with friends and they feel the same way. So if you are listening, CBS, don’t turn off your audience of you don’t have to. It is unappreciated.

  1. Of course they’ve been doing it for years. It’s beyond annoying. It’s insulting. They do not get that.
