Do you watch the commercials in-between the shows you're watching?

I must admit that when I was in my country, I really hated all the commercial breaks because they were too many and repetitive. It's because the shows needed those endorsements. When I got here in the States, I appreciated the commercials because some of them were well-made, have catchy jingles, and are thought-provoking. My favorite is the Target commercial. There is a variety of those commercials and they are all catchy and colorful. McDonald's never failed to impress, even in my country. How about you? Do you like the commercials? If so, what's your favorite?

Well, I will admit that the commercials can sometimes be annoying if they are ones that you have seen a lot of the time, but at the same time, a lot of them can be quite interesting as well. It usually depends on what type of commercials they are if we watch them or what.

I don't really watch the commercials between the shows that I was watching and I rarely even watch the shows themselves. I like to have either the television or the radio on while I do things so that it's not quiet all the time. I need some sound throughout the day.

i really dont usually watch them. i go get something to drink, eat, or use bathroom or go smoke. but if im taping something its easy to ff thru the commercial once in a while i like one. like the target one with the chihuahua saying hello,hello,hello. or ones with people or animals dancing.

I hate the commercials in between show segments. I normally do not watch them and try to keep myself busy doing something else during that time. I might play a game, or read a bit of a book. I find commercials particularly irritating because they just repeat over and over. I wish they could just get back to the show lol.

I don't really watch commercials except those hilarious ones that makes me laugh. But if they are just boring and too 'commercial', i just don't watch and do something else. I am also not the type who would sit long in front of the tv. I usually do two things and mostly I browse the internet or work something on in the computer while watching tv.

Some commercials are really worth watching - we currently have one by a local telecommunication company, and it is really good - innovative and entertaining! The concept is fresh, targeted at global communication and the music is catchy. The company is good at building its image with an icon, that even children can recognise!
