How can they do that ??
Well, I guess they can do whatever they like (as long as it's within the terms of their contract). But it doesn't make much sense.
What happened is that hour-long shows did poorly in reruns for a long time. That's why Law & Order was structured the way it was. It could be broken up into a pair of half-hours. Then came the big comeback of hour-long dramas during the mid- and late-1990s, so you never saw half-hour shows called Law or Order.
And even Law&Order is better watched on DVD. I find it irritating that the opening act and credits are sped up as they have become on various cable networks (Sundance, TNT)
It's a crying shame that O-R L&O is sped up like that on cable and satellite (let alone the spinoffs)!
And for what purposes? Commercial ad Space? I mean early shows like Perry Mason started with Run time of 50-52 minutes. These days, an hour show is lucky to have a running time of 40 minutes after the opening intro
For broadcasters and cable channels, commercials are like chocolate -- there's always room for more!
