No so silly Jeff. Contrary to what you may think, there are more countries in the world than the USA. I live in Australia, and the current start time means it's an 11:10pm Sunday night start time here. At least with the hour earlier start, it now starts at 10pm local time, so it is still possible to watch the race live, and get to bed before midnight.
This is silly. All it means is that if you live in the Western Hemisphere (California is a 5:00am start time, NYC is 8:00am) you will be recording the race and watching it when you get the opportunity. Unless you check the results first and discover that it was another Merc parade, in which case you can just delete the recording and hope that the next race is worth watching.
