Possibly a good point, but with 6 matches at once it is different than a pro tournament with a feature match. Realistically, no one would get ****ed if they came back to the match and started showing a match at 15-15 in the game.
Harder thing to do would be to get commercials in the first place. Figuring approx $10k of revenue needed for a network to do a match...
