Yep, or sacrifice the end credits, on the Hustle episode I mentioned in EBRU, I noticed they cut the opening intro, plus obviously some scenes were cut but then to my surprise they ran the full end credits.

Even shows in the the 80īs, I was watching the other day Threeīs Company and I immediately realize (remembered) they had about a 1 minute intro, and in total it was 25 mins. of actual show.
Nowadays most shows donīt "waste" time in an intro, (exceptions like Hawaii Five-O), show starts basically right away, cast names running at the same time, and a show in a 30 minute timeslot is now about 21 minutes (21:39 for a current show I checked).
