That could make sense. It was two different channels and there didn't seem to be an outage (that's one good thing - cable outages are few and far between). The only channel that I ever have problems with phasing out mid-show is Reelz. These were on main cable channels.
Oh well, hopefully it won't become a trend.
You are both probably right about it being some aspect of the cable feed because the Tivo box 'said' it was recording.
What was kind of weird was that those last 9minutes of the shows weren't on the end of a long hour of nothing. It started right off like those minutes were the beginning of the show.
