Check out the time allotment for commercials on tv...even The Talk of The Villages has started to introduce them. So much for the original concept of Cable TV with commercial free entertainment. Just for kicks check the amount of time dedicated to/for commercials on your favorite programs, not to mention sports.....I suppose the astronomical $$$$$ amount for team players, managers and owners has a little to do with it?????

I timed it. For one of the shows I watch it was about 17 minutes of commercials for an hour show. The morning shows such as GMA far exceed that. Probably 17 minutes of show and the rest commercials. It's frustrating.

So true... first we pay for basic a basic cable or satellite service, still with commercials. Then, we have to pay MORE for a sports package. Then we get even more commercials! Switch channels and what's on? More commercials! Arg! :cus:
