Synergy, negative and otherwise

From The New York Post Sports Section, page 97:
Fox has been cutting it mighty close throughout the postseason, returning from half-inning commercial breaks with the pitcher in mid-windup. This squeeze-in-every-moment commerce finally caught up with all of us in yesterday’s ALCS Game 5.
From The New York Post Television Section, page 107:
THE Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees duel for supremacy in the American League Championship Series kept Fox on top of the primetime pack Monday… Reliable estimates for Fox’s live game coverage weren’t available, but the network was projecting that the game would lead the network to its highest-rated Monday since the “Joe Millionaire” finale in February.
