Like Astro suggests, don't watch TV if you don't like the irritating crap that finances it. Commercials are 'way loud and the infomercials are worse. Pay for the entertainment that you enjoy. I have a carousel CD player with 400 CDs in it (many of which are duplicates of albums that I have bought, some several times as I wore them out). That player does not hold all my music collection (not by a long shot!), but I can set that sucker to "random", "all disks" and have non-stop, commercial free music (all stuff that I WANT to hear) all day long. I watch the local and national news on TV, and perhaps the news on PBS, then the idiot box goes dark until the next day.

Its not a station that plays music. Fox example, yesterday I was watching a program about a girl who is a professional classical violinist. She was explaining how she has to adjust her finger spacing when playing certain songs because of how the piece was originally written for a man who had longer fingers than her, etc. Her name is Hilary Hahn.

The other movie I watched on that station was Pollock, which was quite good. But every time it was commercial time, OXYCLEAN OXYCLEAN!!!!

And I hate how he calls people FOLKS. HEY FOLKS, FOLKS FOLKS FOLKS. Who calls eachother folks? I hate it.

I didn't suggest that the TV station was a music station. If you don't like to pay (through subscription or watching ads) for your media, don't watch it. Advertisers are paying to have your eyes on the the shows that they sponser.

Cy, you're no dummy, by a long shot. You know that your basic cable package has a lot of low-cost channels that are subsidized by commercials and infomercials. You have to decide how much crap you are willing to absorb (or ignore) to watch the programming you want. Crabbing about it won't help.

You're listening to some lovely bach, and then it goes to commercial and you hear that!

How do people not complain about these types of commercials!?!??

I watch cable tv, but I always record the shows on the dvr box and watch them later so that I can zap the commercials. Commercials are annoying.

I think a lot of people grew up in families where the parents yelled at the kids to 'clean up your room!!', 'pick up that dirty laundry!!'-----he's taking over and saying 'BUY THIS STUFF!!''---(and people listen and do as he says)





(it works for picking up some women at the bars too:rofl:)

They just need to regulate the volume, they shouldn't allow a commercial to be twice as loud as the program its embedded in.

Technically they don't increase the volume. The commercial is not allowed to be any louder than the loudest part of the program you are watching but whereas the program varies the volume to add nuance the commercial doesn't and so although the peak is no louder the average volume is.

Billy Mays and the HeadOn commercials are pretty much tied for most annoying things to ever appear on a television screen. But as everyone here has a computer why don't you guys just torrent your favorite shows like 'some people' do? (sssshhhhhhh... don't tell metalica!)

It amazes me how few people have television recording/pausing devices such as Tivo. For anyone with disposible income who watches television, the time saved by not watching commercials would, when viewed as money through a time = money equation, undoubtably equal if not surpass the cost of the technology.

Unfortunately, getting accustomed to Tivo makes you hate commercials even more.
