The example, pushed 5EV in post. Notice how the image on the television is retained by shooting at ISO 100. If I had shot at ISO 3200 the TV image would have been blown out.

Yes, but like other similar examples, then all it really shows is that it's a bad thing/idea to blow important highlights. That's true if using ETTR at base ISO in good light, and also true if using a higher ISO in low light.

That is the point of this example. The only way to protect the highlights in this image is to shoot at base ISO and then raise the shadows to recreate the midtones. That wouldn't be possible shooting at the nominal ISO 3200 this scene required.
