Long format shows for me are 90-120 minute feature docos down to 52 minute broadcast docos. Half hour fishing shows are not exactly long form from my perspective but I am happy to accept many think that they qualify.

I haven't seen the show so don't know how complex the edit or post finishing might be but obviously being able to finish both picture and sound within FCPX is applicable for their workflow. There is a whole range within broadcast and I fully expect this sort of show to be a good candidate for an FCPX workflow. Well lit outdoors sport shows probably don't require complex grading or critical monitoring so again a reasonable fit. However most of the broadcast shows that I grade and mix benefit from using dedicated sound post tools and grading on da Vinci or Color. The speed and accuracy that my clients demand could not be done within any single editing software app.

All this article really says is that FCPX is as good or better than using FCP7 as an editing and finishing tool for this particular show. I don't think we should infer that it means anything beyond that for the majority of broadcast work.
