comment When a TV commercial shows for a split second then cuts off, what is happening?
One additional scenario, that is a variation on your second example, while most commercials are scheduled for a particular time, for sports events they are run during breaks in the action, like the end of an inning in baseball, etc. I can't remember the exact mechanism (this was some 20 years ago when I was writing code to control the tape playback machines at DirecTv) they would get an audio tone at the beginning of the commercial break, to allow a local commercial to replace the national feed. If the tone was late for some reason, you would see the beginning of the national commercial.

comment At what point is the orchestra told who the Academy Award winner will be?
The Time article didn't say anything about Rosas and Cullinan having to memorize everything and then each other. That does sound a little weird.

Nice summary. You left off prequel (I'm just trying to be complete). Star Wars I is obviously a prequel to IV. Is II both a sequel to I and still a prequel to IV at the same time?

comment Cooking shows' last minute finishes
@blm My issue with the time management is every single time they show all the competitors in a mad dash to get done at exactly the last second. None of them are allowing any time to assess if everything is as it should be. It just seems staged to me (i.e. edited to look that way).
