I'm not 100% sure, but I think they cut the show and tack on extra advertising space in order to pay the parent company for the rights to air it. For example, Ion pays Sony for the rights to air the show, so in order to make a profit, they cut scenes, sell more commercials, and the original 22-minute show is now 18 or 19 minutes -- and we get an extra 3 minures of commercials.

Thanks for your explanation too Angie. Well the important thing is that they did not cut out the final scene or edit it in anyway. At least I don't believe they did. It seemed to be the whole uncut scene from the original episode.

Thanks a lot for your explanation Angie. Money is always the problem... We don't have our favorites scenes, but they don't care!

But if they can air original uncut episodes when shows originally air then why can't they show the same uncut episodes in syndication and still have time for commercials?!
That's what I was telling my dad last night. Why can't they show them uncut with commercials.

I remember those parts from the funny bone network thing. They cut out like 2 minutes just from the begining of that. Thats to bad.

They did?! What a sacrilege! Man that's a lot to cut out, a lot of missing pieces to the story for those who are watching for the first time. That is really bad.

For what it's worth, the original episodes (for the 8th season, at least) run about 24 minutes or so, including the credits. The commercial breaks are only 1:30 or 2:00 each, versus what seems like 5 minutes or so on ION. My observation is that they attempt to edit so that the story in the episode still makes sense, but when they do that, they sometimes cut out things that affect the long-term story-line. Often, things we would love to see. They also frequently cut out parts of the teaser (before the opening credits). They do a lot of cuts of things where they figure we can just assume what happened, based on the rest of the show. The uncut episodes tend to make a lot more sense, because you don't have to do much guessing as to what happened between scenes. Like in the original Pilot, where there's a whole scene missing from syndication where Angela actually talks to Grant about the promotion/relationship dilemma (and quotes Frank Sinatra). A lot more continuity.

I always loved the part where Angela and Tony talk about what they were wearing when he 1st applied for the job. It ties in nicely with the final scene when Tony shows up in his tuxedo and Angela of course is in her bathrobe/hair in a towel and they talk about their clothes.

Exactly amorefan. We get the fact that it costs money for the show to be put on the air and they need more commercials to pay for it but what bothers me is the scenes they choose to cut.
