They don't have a pollable site that I know of, but they do have email alerts.
You can sign up to be notified of overruns, and any programs that will
be affected at
For example, here is the pre-notice from this past Friday:
"An NFL runover on Sunday, 10/30 could delay start times for 60
Minutes (7pm ET), The Amazing Race (8pm ET), The Good Wife (9pm ET)
and CSI: Miami (10pm ET)."
And here is the actual alert sent on Sunday, at 7:33pm:
"Revised start times for tonight's CBS programs: 60 Minutes (7:29pm
ET), The Amazing Race (8:29pm ET), The Good Wife (9:29pm ET) and CSI:
Miami (10:29pm ET) due to CBS Sports live coverage of the NFL."
You get similar alerts for things like tennis, etc.
I just wait for these emails, then fire up mythweb and make my
updates. I have grand plans of updating mythweb to make extending a
recording easier, but I always forget about it until the next week...
