In TV shows do they always have to use the full theme-song or can they just use a shortened version in some episodes?

It really doesn't matter long term. Most of the time, if they have a big show that they know will go over on time, they will shorten the open on the song. If they are cool on time, they'll keep it the same. Usually the whole song written is never used. They only use part of it in editing. So, the actual song is usually shortened up to fit within about 30 seconds or less.

When it comes to TV, the best shows ever were the comedy ones. Family comedies were big in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and now. And I know everything about them. It doesn't matter if its Momma's Family, Full House, a Disney or Nickelodeon Show, etc. There is no denying that I am a TV comedy geek. Ask anything!
