Fox looking for 'missing clips' after blunder

Ok, as many of you know, American Idol was interrupted twice last night when FOX aired commercials at the wrong time. And of course it happend during the worst two moments of the show... Here's what we've found out:

From Beaumont Enterprise
"Local viewers of "American Idol" missed Michael Sarver's moment of truth Wednesday as well as the Top 13's music video when technical difficulties caused commercials to interrupt the show at those points."We are talking to Fox about trying to get the video now," said KBTV Fox 4 news director Angel San Juan on Thursday. The station is trying to link to the lost footage on its Web site, San Juan said. "Our general manager learned that this was a problem with several Fox stations across the country," he said.The problem occurred with the commercial breaks schedule, San Juan said. Fox sent the stations a schedule for commercial breaks, but Wednesday night, that schedule was wrong, San Juan said. That resulted in the commercials running over parts of the program, he said."
