Heckuva job, CBS. After hyping the final music performance at the Grammys by Nine-Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Lindsey Buckingham, the network cut away to cram in some last-minute advertising time. Goodbye, rock. Hello, Delta.

Some viewers believe the cutaway was to prevent some same-sex kissing from airing.
