Exactly. Daytime reruns were always cut for commercial time. That's why game shows that ran in the daytime are always shorter than prime time shows from a similar era.I have many 16mm daytime, re-run prints in my collection, dating from the early 60’s onward. They do have two-three minutes edited out, and often sloppily. These were used to fill time during day and any extra money the network could pull in from numerous sponsors, they took it.
With regard to “Our Miss Brooks”, you can tell where the edited scene was by the generic three-note transition music they used. Always on a fade.
