In case you missed it, awhile back  I wrote about "Go On," the Matthew Perry series getting a sneak peek tonight, and you can read what I had to say here. When i wrote the column, the closest thing I could find to a start time was 11:08 p.m. More recent reviews have said 11:04. As I said in the column, your best bet may be to set the DVR for 11 p.m. and an hour of recording time.
