Rename Commercial Break Cliffhanger? I propose that this trope be renamed "After The Break" because not only has American Idol breathed new life into this trope, but the name After The Break is more indicative of the purpose of the trope. Instead of just implying a reference to a commercial, this name is more open to interpretation. this name could also refer to a break in a page, as in a book.
