trading spaces mess up?

Hey, does anyone know what happened at the end of the Trading Spaces Live Reveal show yesterday? In our area it got all messed up, and they had some of the production staff standing in doing a fake reveal. Not sure what went wrong, but someone is going to be handing out their resume's tomorrow!

I saw that and was really surprised that something like that would get on the air.

Re: what happened

I watched the 2nd airing of the episode on Saturday, and in the last 5-10 mins of the show, they had what could be described as catastrophic productoin/broadcasting issues.
First, the feed would suddenly go in reverse, and play back the previous minute or two of the show. This happened two maybe three times.
Second, instead of showing the reveal, they showed what was obviously a test-reveal using some of their production staff to stand in as the homeowners. So you never got to see the real reveal.
And then the show ended.

Maybe it was different in different time zones, or during the second showing.

I did watch this one and in my area there was no glitch other than about 2 seconds of black after 1st reveal. I didn't see anything else wrong (production wise).

Believe it depends on what time zone you're in... here in CST it appeared normal. Would love to have seen that, though. The "Paige Cam" is a GL1... wonder when they'll give her a GL2?
