On this occasion (namely yesterday) I didn't get 
around to shaving and showering until noon, and 
caught this particular airing as advertised.
When I'm home on Sundays, I don't get around
to "MtP" until the 10:00 pm CNBC telecast, there's
the slight matter of "On The Media" on NH Public Radio
at 10:00 am and LTAR at 11:00.  The syndicator
must believe there's a market for it, and of course
it's easier to "multi-task" with radio, including
driving than with TV.  It's possible that the syndicator
is responsible for the cut-in during the Colin Powell
interview...on TV that same night, the Colin Powell
segment was completely uninterrupted from the top of
the hour till 10:25 pm.
