today i was watchin TV for the first time in a while...and i had kinda forgot how big of a portion of your time watchin TV is watchin commercials....some of the programs i watch on TV are short segments and every 15 mins during the program they show 5 or more of commercials....i can think of atleast 50 times in the last year that i shut a program off or stopped watching it because its seemed you were watchin more commercials than TV....most satalite or cable providers charge a pretty decent amound of money for thier services and alot of what you pay for is commercials.... Do you think that commercials ruin TV???? Can you just watch TV and enjoy the program even though theres that many commercials??? Do you think they should lower the amount of commercials?????

certainly it won't happen in the near future, if there is only program, and less and less commercials. The biggest income source on TV is from commercials, and the TV station certainly won't not want to lower their income source. If you can find another alternative for their income source, they might be able to achieve.

If I'm watching something that has commercials what I do is get up while the commercial is on and do things that I need to accomplish. However, I do agree with you commericals ruin TV. They run about 3 minutes if not more and its just so boring especially late night TV commercials, they are the worse.
