Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought they covered both heat races and the main from start to finish. What more do you want? The ratio of race coverage to "filler" (commercials and fluff) is much higher with CBS's one-hour, one-class condensed format than with the Speed's 4-hour two-class format. And I think with some time to edit, CBS does a much better job of catching the important passing on track.

One can certainly complain about live coverage vs. delayed, and perhaps the loss of the LCQ's matters to some (not me), but to my mind, watching one-hour of CBS is a lot more efficient and interesting than wading through four-hours of Speed.
