Old, commercial-TV programs were made with logical commercial breaks where the music swelled and the action faded out or stopped.
Emergency! on DVD shows this perfectly-- one of my favorite episodes, a fourth-season episode called "Details" (OAD Saturday, Dec. 7, 1974 on NBC), actually has a form of swelling in the music from the cold open to the title sequence (on DVD, the modified sixth-and-final-season opening; on FETV, the opening from the first three seasons, with a fourth-season version of the title track from those first three seasons).
