I scheduled the extra shows after Madam Secretary like you are doing on Time Warner before they allowed you to extend the stop times for a recording to keep it in one block. I don’t like having the recording in more than 2 blocks of recordings.
I use the season schedule for Madam Secretary plus the manual start to catch any scheduled time changes that sometimes occur during the football season. I also verify the scheduled start times for Madam Secretary before Sunday for the same reason. Because I am in the Central time, I find that allowing an extra 2 hours, 9-11 am, has always worked for me. They should just schedule 60 minutes after the ballgame and then filler until the news. Move Madam Secretary to an other night.
