The phrase originated in the 1970s, when stations began to run teasers for the late local news during PrimeTime (such as "shootout at local gas station, Film at 11.") This was often a JustifiedTrope at the time, since it could take hours to transport exposed 16 mm film from a remote site to the station, develop it, edit it, and add a voiceover. Even now stations don't like to broadcast raw video from outside sources in case it contains something not fit for the six o'clock news, and satellite uplinks aren't always possible in remote areas or in less developed countries. But the majority of delays these days aren't unavoidable; in almost all cases, they do it only to keep you watching to the end of the broadcast, so they can make more money from advertisers.

* Depressingly enough this still happens on occasion in the UK with some channels showing about half a movie, then having a ten or twenty minute news segment, and then going back to the movie. Somewhat justified in that it was the easiest way for ITV to show a movie AfterTheWatershed on a weekday while retaining the position of ''News At Ten''. The alternatives were moving the news (unthinkable until they moved it to 11pm), or starting the film after the news at 10:30 and running late into the night. The usual pattern was to return to the film straight after the news and run the local news after the film finished. Going back to its original mission of providing news updates on the hour in PrimeTime, Channel 5 runs a short news bulletin during a 9pm film, even advertising this fact in their digital schedules (which include "Five News At Ten" running from 9:58-10:00).
