CBS Eye-lert Launches in Fall

CBS eye-lert

A special HOLLA to the folks at CBS who obviously spend most of their time reading and have read my many, many rants about how I hated when their Sunday night line-up would be affected by long running football games.

Week after week I would get settled in to watch THE AMAZING RACE only to realize that the Sunday Night football game went long, which meant 60 MINUTES was pushed back which affected the start (and end) time for The Amazing Race. All too often the chain of events caused by the football game meant that the last 20 minutes of so of The Amazing Race was cut off on my TiVo.

But this year CBS is launching CBS Eye-lert, a service that will send an email or text message when a football game runs past 7 p.m. The message will tell the user which shows were affected by the late game and when they will specifically start later in the evening. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start.
