Is there a name for those snippets of music that get played going into a commercial
during (sports) broadcasts?

Anywho, someone running the Niners coverage must be a Deadhead.  During the
divisional playoffs they played a bit of Estimated Prophet ("California!  A prophet on
the burning shore...").  During the NFC championship game, it was a brief piece of
Saint of Circumstance ("This must be heaven, tonight I cross the line...").  And once
going into a commercial during the Superbowl, we heard the opening notes of Bertha.
