Is it just me?

Or are tv shows getting shorter and commercials getting longer?

  • Yes! Ack! I was on the wiki page for America's Next Top Model the other day. It said that the shows are only like 44 minutes long and the other 16 minutes is for commercials. I can't believe I sit there for a whole friggin hour watching 16 minutes of commercials O.O

  • I HATE the comercials about the tv shows on whatever channel you are watching because they do not change and they show them at the start of every comercial block SO ANNOYING!!

  • Of yeah they are. I hate the ones that are on during a show you are watching that are advertising a show on a different channel. Those really make me scratch my head. That's why, if I do get to watch "t.v." I usually end up watching movies on pay-per-view, or watch DVR'd stuff so I can fast forward through the commercials. lol

  • I just mute commercials now. I have the DVR in one room, but not in ours. It's a nice moment of peace when I press the mute button.
