Would you Boycott????????

I'm so sick of the overload of commercials on TV......Who could we write to complain about this. In an hour show you get maybe 16 mins of actual show the rest is a stupid commercial. Please don't say tape and watch it later, we shouldn't have to go to that bother. We are held hostage with these stations and it's not fair when you consider our cost for these stations..Cable....Direct TV

  • Considering commercials pay for our fav shows theres really nothing we can do. And I sure as hell dont want to pay taxes to pay for the actors LOL does suck though!

  • I don't think you can complain about it. If you could, nobody would care.

  • I guess in a way we already do, we either channel surf during the commercials or just mute the TV until the show is back on and have a conversation during the commerical time.

  • What's the point of even getting upset? Sure, commercials are a pain in the ass, but it's really not worth getting upset over. If you didn't have them we would be paying TONS more for cable/dish and there would be no free options on or off line... Commercials pay for all your favorite shows... Without them, you couldn't afford to watch any of it

  • I just get up and do something during them, I never pay any attention to them.

     I think your right, but had to ask if anyone might know.

    There's a lot of smart ladies on here and didn't know if someone had a good idea. I don't get UPSET as much as I feel like I'm being held hostage to watch them and think it's unfair, but I mute the ad and talk to DH......
