I have not checked Gilmore yet, but on other shows, Season Pass seems to
handle the over/under. For example, According to Jim ran 40 minutes
instead of 30 and Season Pass got it all. OTOH, the Raymond final
seemed to have ended abruptly. Maybe that was the way it ended; I don't
know. It appears to me that if the service Tivo uses (I am on DirecTV)
has the right times, Tivo will use them. If they are wrong, it will use
the wrong times.
