I watched the repeat of this week's show on Thursday and was astonished to see the show come to a close at about 10:35 p.m. After a block of commercials, the show repeated the last round of hands and the show's conclusion.

I channel Hurricane: What'supwitdat?!

I can dig the show breaking tradition and providing an ending out of nowhere (as opposed to the usual "guess so-and-so will win since it's 10:55"), but what gives here? Did this episode simply not have enough hands to fill two hours? Seems a bit unlikely given that this week's installment had plenty of obvious edits throughout.

Must have been a tape screwup - the show took the whole two hours when I watched it on Tuesday. You might want to try to find another rerun.

Was there anything on the show that seemed so crude or potentially offensive that Bravo would have censored out about 15 minutes for the reruns?

Well, I was offended by Camryn Manheim's shameless camera-whoring, but that's probably not the sort of thing you had in mind.

I was just offended by Camryn Manheim in general, but there was no noticeable problem on Tuesday in my book either.

What I think happened is that they cut out the penultimate segment and repeated the final one twice.

I was zipping through the show on "not Tivo" and it went from the last three people and Colin had a commanding lead. And then, after commercial, it was just Colin and Cameryn and they had almost the same chip count.

I thought I had skipped past the segment. Backed it up and saw they just cut out part of the show.

I can't imagine it would have been content-related, since the show is taped.

The answer I guess will really come on Saturday, when the next replay of the show will be shown.
