Nope, I simply view this televised reality show as any television producer does. The photo finish was prefectly scripted, right down to Santorum's speech while he was ahead with 4% of the vote outstanding and Romney pulling ahead by a nose.
And then someone went overboard by deciding to drag out the final 2% for another two hours. Maybe viewership was lower than expected and they needed to air 'make-good' ads. Luckily CNN pulled 'Edith' in for some needed comedy.
With 25 years of mainstream broadcast experience, I know that it's all about the art of the tease, keeping the audience engaged till the very end and tuned in for the next elimination round...which will be New Hampshire. I bet we can call who will get voted off the island next on Thursday's show....
