The TV Industry

So my career as an extra has thus far proved to be... interesting?  (Much like the equine industry) everything seems to be last minute, constantly changing, and nobody's ever QUITE sure what's going on till under 24h before it happens.  My friend and I got our confirmed call time at 8:50 this morning, when the initial call time we'd received was 12 noon.  Keep in mind it takes 1 1/2h to drive to the filming location....
Anyhow, at 10:30 last night, they didn't know what today's call time would be since they hadn't finished filming.  So this morning we got our call time: 5pm.
Their estimated time for filming to be over for today?  Between 3 and 4 am.
The reason it had been bumped up by 4.5h?  They ended late last night.
Okay, if someone can help me understand why ending late last night means we should bump things back so we can end even later tonight, I'd love to know.

In other news, the concert was fantastic.  Noel was hilarious, and the music was superb.  Additionally, the drummer of the opening band had awesome shoes.
