I would think it has to do more with that fact that advertisers want more time for commercials, so the shows themselves cut their opening in favor of cutting the show's episode itself.

I'm sure what we saw tonight will be the standard as far as the opening (or lack thereof) goes. For whatever reason, it's the trend these days.
A horrible, horrid, stupid trend! HATE IT!
I hate it too but, sadly, I've come to accept it ever since ER cut it's opening in 2006. That was the point where I realized that long, comprehensive openings were a thing of the past. It seems the shows want to allow more time for actual story and while that is all fine and good, it bugs me because openings are important in how people identify a show. You hear the ER theme and you know what show it is. You hear the Days theme and you know what show it is. You hear the Melrose theme and you know what show it is. It's important and I hate that it seems this version of Melrose is not using an opening.
