Preempted

I understand why our local network channels would cut away from the TV broadcast to cover Lightfoot's victory speech in the Chicago mayoral race. It's news.

What I *don't* understand is why they didn't resume the broadcast at the point that they interrupted it. Instead, they dropped several minutes out of the middle of the episode. This was true of both ABC and CBS, so my attempt to work around the expected preemption by adding time to the end of the recording on my DVR was a complete failure.

Tonight, we watched one of the episodes using "On Demand". We'll get the other one shortly.

But it's annoying and shows a certain level of disrespect to the viewers.
