From time to time The Good Wife is delayed because of sporting events on CBS that sometimes run over their regularly scheduled time. When that happens, CBS delays the schedule starting with 60 Minutes. Make sure you get the entire program by setting your DVR to record a two hour block rather than just one hour. That way, if The Good Wife is delayed 20 or 30 minutes, you will still get the whole show.
There are many different kinds of DVRs and depending on your DVR model and service provider the menu names may vary slightly. Here are some general tips:
To record The Good Wife from your DVR program guide
Go to your Guide and choose The Good Wife, which is on Sundays 9/8c. Click Record, Season Pass or Series Link. Choose Recording Options or Record With These Settings and extend the recording time by 1 hour.
