Food Network/Cooking Channel + Pyrex + Broiler = ?

I keep seeing chefs on cable food shows using Pyrex under a broiler.

From the Pyrexware website:

Warnings
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE WARNINGS BELOW MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR MAY CAUSE YOUR GLASSWARE TO BREAK OR SHATTER IMMEDIATELY OR LATER.**

DO NOT use on or under a flame or other direct heat source, including on a stove top, under a broiler, on a grill or in a toaster oven.

So, when people do just like Alton Brown and put their Pyrex dish filled with cheesy cauliflower under the broiler, and it explodes, is Alton Brown to blame?

Thoughts?

I think you should know and understand your own kitchenware and therefore Scripps et al are blameless. I'm guessing others might feel differently, especially after following a recipe with disastrous results.

** It's the "or later" part that gets me. Kinda covers all eventualities, doesn't it.
