Yes, I know.
Those dishes, I believe, are already cooked before the shows begin because there is no way possible for a roast, casserole or other dish that takes a while, to be started & done during the shows' air time. Even if the product was put in the oven at the beginning of a show.
When Emeril does a dessert such as a pie or something, he usually has one already done down under the counter in front of him.
As a dish is started, it is taken through several already pre-prepped stages all the wall to the finished product.
The hosts of those cooking shows merely show you the different stages of the prepping of the dish.
