  • Yes, it's to make sure that you watch their show on their network specifically.
    Think Brand/Consumer Loyalty for Networks.
    And so everything runs in the allotted time frame.
    And it is annoying. LoL

  • That's why I don't watch much TV unless it's a movie on the premium channels that I control. But lately they don't have much there either.

  • I only really watch tv whenever my favorite shows come on (ie, Supernatural, Fringe, Bones, House) but lately it's really bothered me that not only do the stations seem to be having the same shows on at the same time (ie Supernatural and Fringe are both coming on at the same time, if different stations) and I am not able to see one show because of the timing of commercials. I mean, they should at least have the commercials on at different times so that fans can watch their shows and continue being viewers of the station. Television stations are loosing viewers becasue of this. And not all of us can afford DVR's so it's a real problem.
