Four missing minutes is more than time compression generally accounts for. I think Combat running times were cut by 1.5 to 2 minutes, although that show had atypical running times ( about 47 or 48 minutes) before syndication and compression. Real McCoys was syndicated and ran on the Nashville Network eight years ago. 22 minutes is about what they clocked in at. I think the previous releases were cut to a similar degree. This is not good news. Hopefully, the whole season is not cut.
