Back in the old days when TV and radio were among the source of news, information and form of entertainment there's a lot of commercial or advertisement in between programs. Sometimes it's going a bit far too long so much so that the same piss off or bored some viewers or listeners. It is understandable that these commercials or advertisement are the very lifeblood of these TV and radio stations. How long is the average TV or radio commercials/advertisement in between program in your place? Do you like TV or radio commercials? Picture credit: mygmedia.com

Yes, I do not like them at all. They cut the show short.

@mandala100 It is not nice actually when they cut it during the climax.

It depends on the commercial. Some of them are cute or funny (I love that one that has the Arby's guy saying "gyro" instead of "hero" while "Holding Out for a Hero" plays). Others are just annoying, be they inexplicable (what's this commercial selling? There used to be commercials that said, "Tomorrow's taking shape at a company called TRW," but they never told you WHAT TRW was or what they did!), repetitive, or whatever. Sadly, most of the commercials I've seen are in the latter category -- annoying -- than in the "funny or cute" category.

I don't necessarily love TV and radio commercials but there are a couple that I find funny. I know that these commercials are the sponsors of these shows so I'm fine with these.

I dont how long are the TV commercials. But what is not good is that the commercial they show is much longer than the shiw itself.

It is very rare that we see or hear a good commercial. Most of the time, they are so boring.

To long! Its funny how some things change. Older cartoons for example have about 25 minutes of program and 5 minutes of commercial Current cartoons have 17 to 21 minutes of cartoon and 13 to 9 minutes of commercial for a 30 minute TV block
