Order of renovating bathroom on diy shows

I like watching these hgtv and diy bathroom shows for ideas. I can't help but to notice that almost always they tile the floor first after demo or after drywalling. I've always known it as

- demo
- Framing
- roughing
- backer board
- drywall
- finish backer
- finish drywall
- tile walls
- tile floor
- paint
- trim and doors
- fixtures and furniture

I suspect the reason they tile first has to do with their deadlines. They only have so much time to film the show and complete the project so anything that takes substantial drying time (like thinset and grout) gets started first.
