    It appears to me that TV commercials are lasting much longer the last few weeks. Has anyone else noticed this or am I imagining it? Also, it seems whenever I turn on the TV it's ALWAYS during a commercial. Boo on TV.

    The volume difference thing has really peeved me off. The stations should transmit at one level. As far as length, yes, I have noticed it. I can go pee AND get a slice of pie during them now...

    I read somewhere that network TV has about 18 minutes of commercials per hour, and that "cable" has about 20. One of the things that the commercials' editors do, which makes them louder, is that they edit the sound to hold it at a higher level than the programming. Just one more annoyance.
