I've been really busy lately and I've left a batch in primary for fifteen days. I will definitely have time to do it tomorrow, but I'm wondering if I should stay up late to do it tonight. At what point will it be ruined?
Primary: Pilsner
Secondary: Empty
Keg 1: Dunkelweizen
Keg 2: Empty

One more day won't make a difference. Most beers will be forgiving for up to 3 or more weeks in the primary. It mostly depends on the style and ferm temps.

Primary :
On Order: nothing at all..for a few months
Thinking about: Plisner malt and saaz hops

i'm sure you'll be ok, like AXEGOD said, you can get away with letting it sit for 3-4 weeks. besides it'll give it a little extra time to clear out. no worries.
