Is the 9:00-11:00 (eastern time) block of TDF coverage just a replay of the live coverage from the morning?? Or is is a review and critique type of thing?

or maybe more. They do edit a bit and add some more insight, but it is pretty close to the live coverage. Since it has to fit in the two hour slot, the do edit out some of the shots that are included in the morning show. Some claim you need to watch both, but me I tape and watch so I can compress the time.

But isn't the live coverage only a two hour slot as well?? So then why do they have to shorten it?

is typically longer than 2 hours, and they usually go to the end, even if things run "over". Many have complained about their tape ending and the coverage continuing, and they miss the end of the stage.
It usually runs over the alotted time.JL

They cut out some of the riders that don't "matter" to the GC.

they also add in some more race interviews and special segments.
