You thought "live TV" meant "live TV"?

If you did, I don't blame you. But check out this bit from IMDB's Movie and TV News:

TV bosses had to reshoot guest judge [Quentin] Tarantino's reaction to singer Latoya London's performance so the show didn't feature his expletive when it aired on Wednesday night. The usually live telecast was canceled at the last minute when chiefs at Fox TV decided to air a live broadcast by President George W. Bush's instead. Regular judge Paula Abdul says, "He said 'I have three words for you LaToya: F***ing power house.' When we were done, they said, 'It's a wrap. Everybody leave,' and we took our microphones off and said goodbye to the audience, and we're all leaving and then: 'Everyone back to your seats.'"

I wonder what would have happened if the show had been live?
