Segment Seven/Closing
Total Running Time 58:30 15:31
Total Program Content 42:59

With the syndicated program content only running about 43 minutes in length, that means over 2 minutes of content has to be removed, or the show time compressed. This is assuming that the 58:30 program length that 20th Century Fox is telling the stations includes all of the segment times mentioned above and does not include the 1:30 after the show until the top of the hour. If so, this means that the local station really gets 8:30 of commercial time instead of 7:00.

I will verify this information after the syndicated feeds start.

Buffy, The Vampire Slayer is a trademark of 20th Century Television (310-369-1000).
