Why are commercials so much louder than the shows?

I hate this! Especially when my daughter is napping on my lap!

  • Truthteller that's funny because they don't realize that all of my attention is focused on cussing at the tv and looking for the remote to press MUTE. Good point though.

  • They do that on purpose, I read about it or saw a tv show about or something quite a while ago. It is merely supposed to be like a subliminal marketing strategy to get you to pay more attention because the advertisers know that most people walk away to do other things during commercial breaks.
