Reading a .edl file for commercial detection in Visual Basic 2008

I am using the ShowAnalyzer from Dragon Global to detect commercials on live TV (the broadcast is delayed).  Their program outputs to a .edl file which lists the blocks of commercials (in seconds).  The .edl file is constantly being updated and I was wondering what would be the best way to have my VB.Net program read and act upon a new commercial.  Thanks for the help, Ron
